Programme Outcomes

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

PO1 Knowledge - Breadth
  (a) A broad based knowledge and understanding of mathematics, the physical sciences, ICT, design processes and methodologies and industrial practices relevant to Mechanical Engineering.
PO2 Knowledge - Kind
  (a) A detailed knowledge and understanding of the application of mathematical and scientific methods to Mechanical Engineering problems, whilst comprehending that mathematics and the engineering sciences are built on relatively few basic concepts and involving powerful unifying principles.
PO3 Skill - Range
  (a) Apply and modify mathematical and scientific tools and techniques to solve complex mechanical engineering problems through data collection, modelling, analysis, design, simulation, communication and management with creativity, imagination and confidence.
PO4 Skill - Selectivity
  (a) The ability to select, evaluate and apply appropriate engineering, technological and management aids to design and implement a system, component or process to meet specified needs in complex and unfamiliar situations.
PO5 Competence - Context
  (a) An understanding of the diverse nature and the social context of mechanical engineering; appreciate the impact of engineering solutions in a global, contemporary, societal, commercial and environmental context; exhibit professionalism, whilst having the confidence and independence to apply existing knowledge to new and unfamiliar problems.
PO6 Competence - Role
  (a) An ability to act in teams and in a multi-disciplinary fashion, set and implement work objectives and priorities, exercise leadership over technical or other personnel where required; recognise, interpret and apply appropriate regulations and ethical considerations.
PO7 Competence - Learning to Learn
  (a) An awareness of the current boundaries of the various specialist areas in Mechanical Engineering and to have sufficient academic training, confidence and discipline to broaden and deepen own knowledge base through further study, research and professional development.
PO8 Competence - Insight
  (a) A recognition of their obligations to society, the profession and the environment by being familiar with the expectations and standards inherent in professional codes of conduct, but also by consciously applying aesthetic considerations when performing the art and science of engineering.
