Welcome to the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering

One of the best department at SS-CASE-IT in providing state-of-the art education and advanced research in electrical and computer engineering.

The commitment of its faculty and staff, the adherence to standards of academic excellence, all have contributed immensely to the enviable reputation. For the last many years; our post graduate engineering have been the leading choices of scholars pursuing MS and PhD Degrees. It is for this reason that we run the largest post graduate engineering program in Pakistan. Like our graduate programs, the undergraduate programs have also become a benchmark for others to follow. They have gained immense reputation through achievements in many national and international level academic competitions.

Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs):
 
Introduction:
 
The twelve graduate attributes in the guidelines provided by Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) as per Manual of Accreditation 2014 have been adopted by Sir Syed CASE Institute of Technology (SS-CASE-IT) as Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs) for the Electrical Engineering Program. It is ensured that these PLOs are achieved by Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs) of electrical engineering curriculum as redefined by course outlines and assessed through both direct and indirect methods for the attainment of program mission.
 
The list of PLOs for the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering Program is:

  1. Engineering Knowledge: An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  2. Problem Analysis: An ability to identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
  3. Design/Development of Solutions: An ability to design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  4. Investigation: An 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 information to derive valid conclusions.
  5. Modern Tool Usage: An ability to create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modeling, to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations.
  6. The Engineer and Society: An ability to 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 solution to complex engineering problems.
  7. Environment and Sustainability: An ability to understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development.
  8. Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice.
  9. Individual and Team Work: An ability to work effectively, as an individual or in a team, on multifaceted and /or multidisciplinary settings.
  10. Communication: An ability to communicate effectively, orally as well as in writing 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.
  11. Project Management: An ability to demonstrate management skills and apply engineering principles to one’s own work, as a member and/or leader in a team, to manage projects in a multidisciplinary environment.
  12. Lifelong Learning: An ability to recognize importance of, and pursue lifelong learning in the broader context of innovation and technological developments.
 
Review Process of PLOs:
 
The review process for the PLOs is being carried out through a department committee composed of senior faculty members known as the Departmental OBE Management Committee (DOMC). The committee is responsible for revision and improvement of PLOs and for taking any other corrective actions to meet the desired criterion. In order to establish the attainment of PLOs, the two different methods are suggested for triangulation i.e. direct and indirect assessment. The measurement tools to analyze the attainment of PLOs include;
  1. Course Evaluation Forms
  2. Alumni Surveys
  3. Student Surveys
  4. Exit Surveys
 
Indirect Assessment of PLOs:
 
Along with direct measurements from CLOs, the PLOs are also assessed indirectly using feedback taken from employers and graduating students’ exit survey. The indirect assessment methods are shown in Table below. These methods form the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) of the PLOs. Students must attain all PLOs at the time of graduation.

Indirect assessment of PLOs
Program Learning Outcomes Strategy KPI
PLOs 1 to 12 Exit surveys
(Indirect)
Feedback on relevant questions of 60% of contestant should be above C
Employers surveys
(Indirect)
Feedback on relevant questions of 60% of contestant should be above C
 
Direct Assessment of PLOs:
 
All these assessment methods are mainly designed to comply with the Bloom’s taxonomy, which comprises of the following domains:
The PLOs are assessed directly by accumulating student’s individual scores in CLOs relating to a specific PLO. A student must obtain 50% score in each PLO. Throughout the course of education, the DOMC monitors PLOs of each student and in case if they find deficiency a CAR is generated and measures are taken to ensure the student attains required minimum score in all the PLOs.
Following methods are used to assess the outcomes of targeted courses.
  1. Assignments
  2. Quizzes
  3. Mid Term Exam
  4. Final Exam
  5. Projects
  6. Presentations
All these assessment methods are mainly designed to comply with the Bloom’s taxonomy.
