|DIPLOMA OF MANUFACTURING ENGINEERING|
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.
|Graduates from the Diploma of Manufacturing Engineering program must have:|
Program Educational Objectives (PEO) is specific goals describing expected achievements of graduates in their career and professional life after graduation. Below are the PEO for Manufacturing Engineering Faculty.
