What is PO?
Program Outcomes (PO) are "statements that describe what students are expected to know or be able to do by the time of graduation" (ABET Criteria, 2003). To prepare the students for the achievement of PEOs, all the POs as listed in the EAC Manual were adopted. These POs are also derived from the PEOs. It is expected that the graduates of Bachelor of Manufacturing Engineering course will exhibit the following outcomes at the time of graduation. These POs are common for all departments under the Faculty of Manufacturing Engineering.
Able to apply knowledge of
mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and manufacturing engineering to
the solution of complex engineering problems.
Able to identify,
formulate, research literature and analyse complex engineering problems
reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics,
natural sciences and engineering sciences.
Able to design solutions
for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes
that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and
safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
Able to conduct
investigation into complex problems using research based knowledge and research
methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data,
and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions.
Able to create, select and
apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools,
including prediction and modelling, to complex engineering activities, with an
understanding of the limitations.
Able to apply reasoning
informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and
cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional
Able to apply ethical
principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of
Able to understand the
impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental
contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development.
Able to 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.
Able to demonstrate
knowledge and understanding of 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.
Able to recognise the need
for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and
life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change and acquire
knowledge on entrepreneurship.
Able to demonstrate knowledge
and understanding of the principles of finance and project management.
