Programme Outcomes

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

PO1 Knowledge - Breadth
  (a) A knowledge of mathematics,engineering science,ICT,design, and legislative and regulatory framework applicable to marine engineering
PO2 Knowledge - Kind
  (a) The ability to identify, formulate and analyse marine engineering problems. Understands relevant scientific concepts including their limitations, which develop and enable abstract thinking for problem solving. Can demonstrate an understanding of the advantages and limitations of core mathematical formula and technologies used in marine engineering design. Has knowledge of the core components used in marine engineering systems. Understands their role within the engineering team.
PO3 Skill - Range
  (a) The ability to select and apply appropriate mathematical and scientific techniques to solve problems in marine engineering using well described procedures and drawing limited conclusions. Can use computer based engineering tools. Can plan and develop a project and use an evidence-based approach to problem solving.
PO4 Skill - Selectivity
  (a) The ability to select an appropriate systematic mathematical/analytical/scientific method to solve problems while understanding the accuracy of such methods when proposing solutions. Can undertake routine practical or simulated testing of systems and report and comment on results.
PO5 Competence - Context
  (a) The ability to select and apply mathematical and scientific techniques to the supervision and maintenance of marine engineering systems. The graduate has an awareness of the ethical implication involved in working at sea and can work in a safe and environmentally sound manner.
PO6 Competence - Role
  (a) An awareness of the role of a multidisciplinary shipboard team and has the ability to work as an effective member of this team or as an individual. Can exercise independent technical judgement and has the ability to lead engineering teams.
PO7 Competence - Learning to Learn
  (a) The ability to identify and address learning needs professionally and at a personal level;to keep abreast of developments in technology and the maritime regulatory framework.
PO8 Competence - Insight
  (a) A broad knowledge of social,political and economic factors relevant to marine engineering;to maintain high ethical standards in engineering practice towards people and the environment.
