Programme Objectives

 

  1. Scholarship of Knowledge

Acquire in-depth knowledge of specific discipline or professional area, including

wider and global perspective, with an ability to discriminate, evaluate, analyse and

synthesise existing and new knowledge, and integration of the same for enhancement

of knowledge.

 

2.  Critical Thinking

Analyse complex engineering problems critically, apply independent judgement for

synthesising information to make intellectual and/or creative advances for conducting

research in a wider theoretical, practical and policy context.

 

3. Problem Solving

Think laterally and originally, conceptualise and solve engineering problems, evaluate

a wide range of potential solutions for those problems and arrive at feasible, optimal

solutions after considering public health and safety, cultural, societal and

environmental factors in the core areas of expertise.

 

4.  Research Skill

Extract information pertinent to unfamiliar problems through literature survey and

experiments, apply appropriate research methodologies, techniques and tools, design,

conduct experiments, analyse and interpret data, demonstrate higher order skill and

view things in a broader perspective, contribute individually/in group(s) to the

development of scientific/technological knowledge in one or more domains of

engineering.

 

5.  Usage of modern tools

Create, select, learn 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.

 

6. Collaborative and Multidisciplinary work

Possess knowledge and understanding of group dynamics, recognise opportunities and

contribute positively to collaborative-multidisciplinary scientific research,

demonstrate a capacity for self-management and teamwork, decision-making based on

open-mindedness, objectivity and rational analysis in order to achieve common goals

and further the learning of themselves as well as others.

 

7. Project Management and Finance

Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering and management principles

and apply the same to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, manage

projects efficiently in respective disciplines and multidisciplinary environments after

considerisation of economical and financial factors.

 

8. Communication

Communicate with the engineering community, and with society at large, regarding

complex engineering activities confidently and effectively, such as, being able to

comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation by adhering to

appropriate standards, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear

instructions.

 

9.  Life-long Learning

Recognise the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in life-long

learning independently, with a high level of enthusiasm and commitment to improve

knowledge and competence continuously.

 

10. Ethical Practices and Social Responsibility

Acquire professional and intellectual integrity, professional code of conduct, ethics of

research and scholarship, consideration of the impact of research outcomes on

professional practices and an understanding of responsibility to contribute to the

community for sustainable development of society.

 

11. Independent and Reflective Learning

Observe and examine critically the outcomes of one’s actions and make corrective

measures subsequently, and learn from mistakes without depending on external feedback.

 

Program Specific outcome
