Field trip to the Matson terminal on Sand Island and first view of the brand new Daniel K. Inouye container-ship being prepped for loading for its first trip out of Honolulu. Dr. Eftychia Nathanail‘s graduate class on freight logistics was graciously hosted by Matson Terminals Manager Kam Chun, a CEE alum.
Six Chi Epsilon (XE) undergraduate students and an alumnus made the department very proud by winning the Pacific District Chi Epsilon Cup for an unprecedented fourth time in a row and fifth time in six years at the 31st Annual Pacific District Conference held at the University of California at Berkeley, November 9-11, 2018. They were the defending champions from 2015 through 2017. Students competed against 13 other California universities that comprise the Pacific District in chapter presentations, quiz (on civil engineering and XE), Simpson Strong Tie competition, and other events. The UH winning team members include from left to right: Paige Avery, Theodore Uekawa, Lidek Boryszewski (President – holding the Pacific District Cup), Louise Jallorina, Tara Okahara, Taylor Onizuka (UH alumni, now M.S. student in geotechnical engineering at UC Berkeley), and Camille Gozum. Their hard work and resourcefulness paid off. Congratulations!
