Enrollment is open for continuing education courses in Digital Design and Python Programming through the University of Hawaiʻi Maui College’s Office of Extended Learning & Workforce Development.

The opportunity is sponsored by the Native Hawaiian Education Association in an effort to increase the capacity of Native Hawaiians working in media and technology, including digital design and programming.

The Digital Design Certificate will teach the fundamentals of Photoshop and Illustrator using the basic tools and features of digital image editing, photo retouching, and color correction of images. The class will meet Mondays and Wednesdays, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., from Jan. 27 to May 13, 2020.


The Python Programming for Data Science course will teach the fundamentals of programming in Python, an open-source language, and concepts related to machine learning, artificial intelligence, and data analysis through online moduyles, cohort projects, and lab learning. The class will meet Mondays and Thursdays, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., from Jan. 27 to May 14, 2020.

As a final requirement for earning a Certificate of Professional Development in each course, students will apply their new knowledge and skills through an applied project and have the opportunity to earn an industry certification.

Individuals who wish to apply must schedule an in-person appointment at UH Maui College with Melia Mattos via email at [email protected] or call (808) 984-3409 for more information. There is no cost for participants.  Full tuition sponsorships are available, with preference given to individuals of Hawaiian ancestry to the extent permitted by law.
