  • Graduates will be able to exhibit professional engineering values and ethics in understanding and assessing contemporary issues of the society. 

 

  • Graduates will be able to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, engineering and social context.

 

  • Graduates will be able to contribute individually and apply engineering as well as managerial skills in multidisciplinary teams to achieve the organization’s objectives.

 

  • Graduates will be able to represent the solution to a problem in the form of reports or presentations.

 

  • Graduates will be able to apply the skills necessary for research, higher studies and continually update one’s knowledge.

 

Program Outcomes

The POs formulated for each program must be consistent with the Graduate Attributes mentioned in Washington Accord. Graduates Attributes (GAs) form a set of individually assessable outcomes that are the components indicative of the graduate’s potential to acquire competence to practice at the appropriate level. The GAs are exemplars of the attributes expected of a graduate of an accredited program. The Graduate Attributes of the NBA are as following:

1. Engineering knowledge:
Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization for the solution of complex engineering problems.

2. Problem analysis: 
Identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences. 

3. Design/development of solutions:
Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, and cultural, societal, and environmental considerations. 

4. Conduct investigations of complex problems: 
Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.

5. Modern tool usage: 
Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations. 

6. The engineer and society: 
Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.  

7. Environment and sustainability: 
Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.  

8. Ethics: 
Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice. 

9. Individual and team work: 
Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multi-disciplinary settings. 

10. Communication: 
Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with t h e society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions. 

11. Project management and finance: 
Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments. 

12. Life- long learning: 
Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change. Graduates will be able to secure employment or be an entrepreneur with ability to apply professional knowledge with ethical responsibility.
