Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs)

Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs) of the UG program in the Department of Electrical Engineering are established through a consultation process. In support of the objectives of the institute, the educational objectives of Electrical Engineering programme are designed to prepare our students to be proficient at putting theory into practice, capable of life-long learning, and to be aware of the social, ethical and environmental issues associated with their professional activities. For B. Tech. (Electrical Engineering) programme the department envisaged to have processes, resources and pedagogies to achieve the following objectives:

PEO1: Be successful in professional as well as entrepreneurial career by acquiring strong knowledge in the principles and practices of Electrical Engineering.

PEO2: Be successful in analysing, designing or testing electrical systems, such as electrical power system, energy system, instrumentation and control system, electrical drive system etc., that are technically sound, economically feasible and socially acceptable.

PEO3: Be a productive member of a team, assuming leadership roles in their career, demonstrate professionalism, ethical approach, effective communication and pursuing life- long learning to become a good human being.

Along with Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs), Programme Specific Outcomes (PSOs) are also prepared to have benchmarks for graduating Students’ technical capabilities, competency and other important skills necessary to be successful in real world.
