Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)

Our mission for Civil Engineering graduates is to possess skills relating to:

  1. Engineering Knowledge:An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex civil engineering problems.
  2. Problem Analysis:An ability to identify, formulate, research literature and analyze complex civil engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
  3. Design/Development of Solutions:An ability to design solutions for complex civil 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.
  4. Investigation:An ability to investigate complex civil engineering problems in a methodical way including literature survey, design and conduct of experiments, analysis and interpretation of experimental data and synthesis of information to derive valid conclusions.
  5. Modern Tool Usage:An ability to crate, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modeling, to complex civil engineering activities, with an understanding of limitations.
  6. The Engineer and Society:An ability to apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solution to complex civil engineering problems.
  7. Environment and Sustainability:An ability to understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development.
  8. Ethics:Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice.
  9. Individual and Team work:An ability to work effectively as an individual or in a team, on multifaceted and/or multidisciplinary settings.
  10. Communication:An ability to communicate effectively, orally as well as in writing, on complex mechanical engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective report and design documentation, make effective presentations and give and receive clear instructions.
  11. Project Management:An ability to demonstrate management skills and apply engineering principles to one’s own work, as a member and/or leader in a team, to manage projects in a multidisciplinary environment.
  12. Lifelong Learning:An ability to recognize importance of and pursue lifelong learning in the broader context of innovation and technological developments.
