Programme Outcomes

MEng Programme

The department maps its module learning outcomes to, and assesses the attainment of,  two sets of Programme Outcomes:  (A) The Engineering Accreditation Council Malaysia (EAC) set and the United Kingdom-Specification set (B).  The two sets are compatible and can be interrelated.

(A) Programme Outcomes Engineering Accreditation Council Malaysia (EAC) Set


Engineering Knowledge - Apply knowledge of mathematics, natural science, chemical engineering fundamentals and chemical engineering specialisation as specified in WK1 to WK4 respectively to the solution of complex engineering problems. 



Problem Analysis (Complexity of analysis)- Identify, formulate, conduct research literature and analyse complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and chemical engineering sciences (WK1 to WK4). 



Design/Development of Solutions (Breadth and uniqueness of engineering problems) - Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design chemical engineering systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal and environmental considerations (WK5). 



Investigation (Breadth and depth of investigation and experimentation)- Conduct investigation of complex engineering problems using research-based knowledge (WK8) and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions.



Modern Tool Usage (Level of understanding of the appropriateness of the tool) - Create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to complex engineering problems, with an understanding of the limitations (WK6). 



The Engineer and Society (Level of knowledge and responsibility)- Apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solutions to complex engineering problems (WK7). 



Environment and Sustainability (Type of solutions) - Understand and evaluate the sustainability and impact of professional engineering work in the solutions of complex engineering problems in societal and environmental contexts (WK7). 



Ethics (Understanding and level of practice)- Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice (WK7). 



Individual and Team Work (Role in and diversity of team)- Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multidisciplinary settings. 



Communication (Level of communication according to type of activity performed) - Communicate effectively on complex 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. 



Project Management and Finance (Level of management required for differing types of activity) - Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering management principles and economic decision-making and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments.  



Life-long Learning (Preparation for the depth of continuing learning) - Recognise the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change. 


The program learning outcomes are grouped into 5 general areas to identify the nature of the skills and capability involved. These groups are:         

Technical (T) – essential capabilities related to traditional scientific and engineering knowledge

Analysis (A) – creatively working with available data and engineering tools and fundamental knowledge to correctly solve basic problem

Design (D) – being able to perceive the best solution for both small scale and large scale project by involving all required basic problems

Ethics, Safety, Society and Environment (ESSE) - giving appropriate consideration to matters pertaining to professionalism and ethics, safety, local and global society and the environment

Work skills (S) – being and effective communicator and effective member of a team and to appreciate the need to continuously acquired skills and abilities.
