- 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
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
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

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.
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
9. Life-long Learning
