PEO2:Pursue higher education and/or research for professional development.

PEO3:Contribute as an individual or a team member with demonstrable attributes in life long learning for the welfare of the society.

Program Outcomes (POs)

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 analyse 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 for complex problems:

  • that cannot be solved by straight forward application of knowledge, theories and techniques applicable to the engineering discipline as against problems given at the end of chapters in a typical text book that can be solved using simple eengineering theories and techniques;
  • that may not have a unique solution. For example, a design problem can be solved in many ways and lead to multiple possible solutions;
  • that require consideration of appropriate constraints / requirements not explicitly given in the problem statement such as cost, power requirement,durability, productlife, etc.;
  • which need to be defined(modeled) with in appropriate mathematical frame work; and that often require use of modern computational concepts and tools, for example, in the design of an antenna or a DSP filter.

PO5: Modern Tool Usage: 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.

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 indiverse teams, and in multi disciplinary 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 multi disciplinary 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.
