Programme Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this programme the graduate will be able to demonstrate... :

PO1 Knowledge - Breadth
  (a) An in-depth knowledge of areas of mathematics, science, ICT, design, business and engineering practice relevant to the structural engineer.
PO2 Knowledge - Kind
  (a) The ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, ICT, design, business and engineering practice to the analysis and solution of complex problems in structural engineering.
PO3 Skill - Range
  (a) The ability to use modelling and analytical techniques, skills and modern computer-based engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
PO4 Skill - Selectivity
  (a) The ability to design a system, component or process to meet specified needs, to design and conduct experiments and to analyse and interpret data.
PO5 Competence - Context
  (a) The 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.
PO6 Competence - Role
  (a) The 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.
PO7 Competence - Learning to Learn
  (a) The 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.
PO8 Competence - Insight
  (a) An 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.
