Programme Outcomes(POs)

Programme Outcomes are narrower statements that describe what students are expected to know and be able to do upon the graduation. These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behavior that students acquire in their matriculation through the programme. Graduates of the Mechanical Engineering Programme will be able to achieve the following POs:

Programme Outcomes – Mechanical Engineering Department

The Department of Mechanical Engineering has adopted the NBA outcomes as its Programme Outcomes. Graduates of the Mechanical Engineering Programme will be able to achieve the following POs
PO1Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and Mechanical Engineering principles to the solution of complex problems in Mechanical Engineering.
PO2Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex Mechanical Engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics and engineering sciences.
PO3Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex Mechanical Engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.


Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions related to Mechanical Engineering problems.
PO5Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering tools such as CAD, CAM, CIM and FEM including prediction and modelling to complex Mechanical Engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
PO6The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal, and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional Mechanical Engineering practice.
PO7Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional Mechanical Engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
PO8Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the Mechanical engineering practice. .
PO9Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
PO10Communication: Communicate effectively on complex Mechanical engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
PO11Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
PO12Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life- long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
