2020 PEEC II Symposium

Presented by the Hawaiʻi Pre-Engineering Education Collaborative II (PEEC II) in partnership with the UH Engineering Consortium.

The Hawaiʻi Pre-Engineering Education Collaborative Phase II (PEEC II) seeks to build on, test, and implement best practices derived from the original Hawaiʻi Pre-Engineering Education Collaborative: Indigenous Knowledge in Engineering (PEEC-IKE) model. The overarching goals for Hawaiʻi PEEC II are:

  • To implement, investigate, and evaluate the effect of discipline-specific undergraduate research on student success; and

  • To build capacity at Native Hawaiian- serving institutions to prepare students for STEM degree completion, seamless transfer, and entry into the STEM workforce.

PEEC II Campuses:

Honolulu Community College

Kapiʻolani Community College (lead)

Leeward Community College

Windward Community College

University of Hawaiʻi Mānoa

University of Hawaiʻi Maui College

This digital and asynchronous symposium held in August 18th, 19th, and 20th is an opportunity for the pre-engineering and engineering students from Kapiʻolani CC, Honolulu CC, Leeward CC, Windward CC, UH Mānoa, and UH Maui College to showcase the research they performed and projects they worked on during their summer programs.

Hawaiʻi PEEC II is a collaboration between six University of Hawaiʻi campuses with the goal of increasing access to pre-engineering education and experiences for Native Hawaiians, women, and other underserved minorities in the engineering fields. This symposium gives students, community members, industry professionals, and UH faculty/staff the opportunity to meet and form connections with each other.

We invite educators, partners, family members, engineers, researchers, and other community members to join us!
