PROGRAM OUTCOMES (POs)
Engineering Graduates will be able to:
PO1: Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
PO2: Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
PO3: 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 the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
PO4: 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.
PO5: 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.
PO6: 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.
PO7: 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.
PO8: Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
PO9: Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
PO10: Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with 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.
PO11: 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.
PO12: 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.
PROGRAM OUTCOMES and Program Specific Outcomes Assessment Process
In Outcome based Education, assessment done through one or more than one processes, carried out by the institution, that identify, collect and prepare data to evaluate the achievement of programme educational objectives, program outcomes and course objectives and outcomes.
PO Assessment ToolsAssessment tools are categorized into direct and indirect methods to assess the programme educational objectives, program outcomes and course outcomes.
Direct methods: Display the students’ knowledge and skills from their performance in the MID Examinations, Lab Examinations, end-semester examinations, presentations and classroom assignments etc. These methods provide a sampling of what students know and/or can do and provide strong evidence of students learning.
Indirect methods: Gather preparations of how well students are achieving/ achieved a learning outcome. The PAC assesses opinions, thoughts about the graduate knowledge and skills. As it is a complex process, the percentage of attainment is kept at low percentage.
- Direct Component
- Indirect Component
The indirect component of PO contribution is obtained from different surveys:
- Graduate Exit Survey
- Alumni Survey
- Employer Survey
Direct Assessment of POs for a course is obtained by mapping the average value of course outcome attainment with the mapping of the target or expected POs for the particular course.
Graduate Exit Survey: : The Graduate Exit Survey is conducted at the end of the Program. The Objective of the Survey is to know the level of confidence of each PO/PSO that graduates possess by the end of the program.
Alumni Survey A Survey is conducted on Vision & Mission, PEOs, POs and PSOs. It contributes towards the weightage of PO, PSO and PEOs attainment. This survey is administered by alumni coordinator with the passed out students.
Employer Survey A feedback is collected on Vision & Mission, PEOs, POs &PSOs. It is an indirect assessment tool which contributes towards the weightage of POs and PSOs. Employee surveys are tools used by organizational leadership to gain feedback on and measure employee engagement, employee moral values and performance.
The weightage for various surveys in the PO and PSO indirect assessment process is tabulated as follows.
|Name Of the Survey||Weightage|
|Graduate Exit Survey||10%|
