Engineering Alumni Association

Engineering LogoThe Engineering Alumni Association of the University of Hawaii (EAAUH) was established in 1983. EAAUH is the third (3rd) largest of UHAA’s member chapters with over 400 members, including graduates of the College of Engineering, former UH students, and friends of the College and UH.

The goals of the Engineering Alumni Association are to:

  • Promote and foster a better understanding and relationship between the UH engineering faculty and students with the practicing engineering alumni;
  • Promote fellowship among the UH engineering alumni through professional and social functions; and
  • Provide professional support to the College of Engineering by sponsoring and assisting the College’s educational and research and development programs.

To achieve these goals the association holds several events throughout the year, with the annual golf tournament and the annual “Holmes”coming celebration being the biggest attractions.
