Programme Educational Objectives (PEO)

After a series of strategic planning sessions, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering has decided to adopt the following Programme Educational Objectives (PEO) tabulated in Table 1 for the Bachelor of Automotive Engineering (BHA) programme. FKM’s PEOs is published on academic prospectus which can be found at http://www.ump.edu.my/sites/default/files/publications/ump-undergraduate%20-prospectus-2016-2017.pdf

 Table 1 Programme Educational Objectives

       PEO Programme Educational Objectives (PEO) Performance Indicator
PEO 1 Graduates are competent, responsible and practise professionalism in the global context. 

30% of graduates promoted from entry level within 5 years

30% of graduates working in companies with global network

PEO 2 Graduates are knowledgeable and capable to apply the evolving technology in mechanical engineering field. 60% of graduates are able to perform technical tasks using the evolving technology within 5 years of graduation

Programme Outcome (PO)

Program outcomes (POs) are specific statements of graduates’ knowledge, skills and attitudes (EAC Manual 2012) that are the evidences in the programme objective achievements. Consistent with world-class mechanical engineering programme, the following list are the twelve programme outcomes for the Bachelor of Automotive Engineering (BHA). The Bachelor of Automotive Engineering ensures that their students attain:

  • PO1 An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an automotive engineering specialisation to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  • PO2 An ability to identify, formulate, research literature and analyse complex automotive engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
  • PO3 An ability to design solutions for complex mechanical-automotive 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.
  • PO4 An ability to conduct investigation into complex problems using research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions.
  • PO5 An ability to create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to complex automotive engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations.
  • PO6 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.
  • PO7 An ability to understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development.
  • PO8 An ability to apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice.
  • PO9 An ability to 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.
  • PO10 An ability to function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multi-disciplinary setting.
  • PO11 An ability to 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.
  • PO12 An ability to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of 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 multidisciplinary environments.

The faculty had made the programme outcomes available to be accessed in faculty’s web portal via access link as stated below. The faculty also had posted the programme outcomes on faculty’s information boards together with programme educational objectives.

PO-PEO Mapping

The PO’s were designed to support the achievement of the PEO. The assessment of the POs achievement is thus useful to indicate the attainment of the PEOs. Table 2 shows the mapping of the programme educational objectives to the programme outcomes.
