engineering program adopts the IET learning outcomes. IET learning outcomes are
categorized under five main learning outcomes:
1. Science &
SM1p: Knowledge and understanding of scientific
principles and methodology necessary to underpin their education in their
engineering discipline, to enable appreciation of its scientific and
engineering context, and to support their understanding of relevant historical,
current and future developments and technologies.
SM2p: Knowledge and understanding of mathematical
and statistical methods necessary to underpin their education in their
engineering discipline and to enable them to apply mathematical and statistical
methods, tools and notations proficiently in the analysis and solution of
SM3p: Ability to apply and integrate knowledge and
understanding of other engineering disciplines to support study of their own
2. Engineering Analysis:
EA1p: Understanding of engineering principles and
the ability to apply them to analyse key engineering processes.
EA2p: Ability to identify, classify and describe
the performance of systems and components through the use of analytical methods
and modelling techniques.
EA3p: Ability to apply quantitative and computational
methods in order to solve engineering problems and to implement appropriate
EA4p: Understanding of, and the ability to apply,
an integrated or systems approach to solving engineering problems.
· 3. Design:
D1p: Understand and evaluate business, customer
and user needs, including considerations such as the wider engineering context,
public perception and Aesthetics.
D2p: Investigate and define the problem,
identifying any constraints including environmental and sustainability
limitations; ethical, health, safety, security and risk issues; intellectual
property; codes of practice and standards.
D3p: Work with information that may be
incomplete or uncertain and quantify the effect of this on the design.
D4p: Apply advanced problem-solving skills, technical
knowledge and understanding, to establish rigorous and creative solutions that
are fit for purpose for all aspects of the problem including production,
operation, maintenance and disposal.
D5p: Plan and manage the design process,
including cost drivers, and evaluate Outcomes.
D6p: Communicate their work to technical and
· 4. Economic, legal,
social, ethical and environmental context:
ET1p: Understanding of the need for a high level
of professional and ethical conduct in engineering and a knowledge of
professional codes of conduct.
ET2p: Knowledge and understanding of the
commercial, economic and social context of engineering processes.
ET3p: Knowledge and understanding of management
techniques, including project management that may be used to achieve
ET4p: Understanding of the requirement for
engineering activities to promote sustainable development and ability to apply
quantitative techniques where appropriate.
ET5p: Awareness of relevant legal requirements
governing engineering activities, including personnel, health & safety,
contracts, intellectual property rights, product safety and liability issues.
ET6p: Knowledge and understanding of risk issues,
including health & safety, environmental and commercial risk, and of risk
assessment and risk management techniques.
· 5. Engineering Practice:
EP1p: Understanding of contexts in which engineering
knowledge can be applied (e.g. operations and management, application and
development of technology, etc.).
EP2p: Knowledge of characteristics of particular
materials, equipment, processes, or products.
EP3p: Ability to apply relevant practical and
EP4p: Understanding of the use of technical
literature and other information sources.
EP5p: Knowledge of relevant legal and contractual
EP6p: Understanding of appropriate codes of practice
and industry standards.
EP7p: Awareness of quality issues and their
application to continuous improvement.
EP8p: Ability to work with technical uncertainty.
EP9p: Understanding of, and the ability to work in,
different roles within an engineering team.
