HONOLULU (AP) - Kapiolani Community College has received a $5 million National Science Foundation Grant to support the teaching of engineering to Native Hawaiians.
The grant will support an online pre-engineering curriculum, allowing students at other University of Hawaii system schools - including Maui College and Windward Community College - to enroll.
Students will transfer to UH Manoa and complete degrees in civil, electrical and mechanical engineering once they complete the pre-engineering curriculum.
Kapiolani Community College said Monday one of the program's main goals is to create a quality, online pre-engineering core curriculum that effectively integrates calculus and prepares Native Hawaiian students for higher-level courses.
