Programme Outcomes

On successful completion of this programme the learner will be able to :

PO1Knowledge - BreadthAn in-depth knowledge of areas of mathematics, science, ICT, design, business and engineering practice relevant to the structural engineer.
PO2Knowledge - KindThe ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, ICT, design, business and engineering practice to the analysis and solution of complex problems in structural engineering.
PO3Skill - RangeThe ability to use modelling and analytical techniques, skills and modern computer-based engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
PO4Skill - SelectivityThe ability to design a system, component or process to meet specified needs, to design and conduct experiments and to analyse and interpret data.
PO5Competence - ContextThe ability to assume personal responsibility for the development and application of engineering science and knowledge, particularly in research, design and construction of civil and structural engineering works.
PO6Competence - RoleThe ability to work autonomously, in teams and in multi-disciplinary settings to give authoritative technical advice and to assume responsibility for the direction of important tasks in structural engineering. The ability to communicate effectively with the engineering community and with society at large.
PO7Competence - Learning to LearnThe capacity to identify learning needs and to undertake continuous learning (including lifelong learning and continuing professional development), incorporating the ability to closely and continuously follow progress in structural engineering by consulting newly published works, assimilating such information and applying it independently.
PO8Competence - InsightAn understanding of the wider social, political, business and economic context within which engineering operates and the need for high ethical standards in the practice of engineering, including the responsibilities of the engineering profession towards people and the environment.
