PEOs & PLOs

Program Educational Objectives (PEO)

The Aerospace Engineering program aims at imparting quality education to its graduates for contributing to society through modern technologies and practices in line with UN sustainable development goals. For BE (Aerospace Engineering) four PEOs are defined below, which are the attributes, our graduates are expected to possess by the end of the program. The PEOs are to produce: –

PEO 1.            Employable graduates with the knowledge and competency in Aerospace Engineering (PLO 1‑2).

PEO 2.            Graduates demonstrating the capacity to assume social (PLO‑6), environmental (PLO‑7), and ethical (PLO‑8) responsibility in the national and global perspective.

PEO 3.            Graduates with the capability to be effective team members (PLO‑9) and take a leadership role (PLO‑11) in research (PLO-4), design (PLO‑3), innovation, implementation, and operation of Aerospace and related systems (PLO-5).

PEO 4.            Graduates who can communicate effectively (PLO-10) and possess an enduring desire for enhancing knowledge (PLO-12).  

Programme Learning Outcomes – BE (Aerospace)

The Department of Aerospace Engineering has developed Program learning outcomes (PLOs) that are supported by Program Educational objectives. These PLOs relate to the aptitude, awareness, and performance that students acquire with the progression of the program. These PLOs are definitized as follows: –

  • Engineering Knowledge.

Ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.

  • Problem

Ability to identify, formulate, research literature, and analyse complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions. Achieving aforesaid by using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.

  • Design/Development of

Ability to design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components, or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health, safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.

Ability to investigate complex engineering problems in a methodical way including literature survey, design, and conduct of experiments. Analysis and interpretation of experimental data and synthesis of the information to derive valid conclusions.

 

  • Modern Tool Usage.

Ability to create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, modern engineering, and IT tools. This includes the prediction and modelling of complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.

  • The Engineer and Society.

Ability to apply to reason informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues. The consequent responsibilities are relevant to professional engineering practice and solutions to complex engineering problems.

  • Environment and Sustainability.

Ability to understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development.

Apply ethical principles and commit professional ethics, responsibilities, and norms of engineering practice.

  • Individual and Teamwork.

Ability to work effectively, as an individual or in a team, on multifaceted and/or multi-disciplinary settings.

  • Communication

Ability to communicate effectively, orally as well as in writing, on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large. Graduate students are expected to comprehend, write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give/receive clear instructions.

  • Project Management.

Ability to demonstrate management skills and apply engineering principles to one’s work, as a member and/or leader in a team, to manage projects in a multi-disciplinary environment.

  • Lifelong Learning.

Ability to recognize the importance and pursue lifelong learning in the broader context of innovation and technological developments.
