Programme Educational Objectives (PEO)

Program educational objectives are broad statements that describe the career and professional accomplishments that the program is preparing graduates to achieve.
The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) of UG Program in Computer Science & Engineering are:

  • PEO-1 The graduates will establish themselves as professionals by solving real-life problems using exploratory and analytical skills acquired in the field of Computer Science and Engineering.
  • PEO-2 The graduates will provide sustainable solutions to ever changing interdisciplinary global problems through their Research & Innovation capabilities.
  • PEO-3 The graduates will become employable, successful entrepreneur as an outcome of Industry-Academia collaboration. 
  • PEO-4 The graduates will embrace professional code of ethics while providing solution to multidisciplinary social problems in industrial, entrepreneurial and research environment to demonstrate leadership qualities.

Methods of Forming PEO’s

  • STEP 1.    The needs of the Nation and society are identified through scientific publications, industry interaction and media.
  • STEP 2.  Taking the above into consideration, the PEOs are established by the Coordination Committee of the department.
  • STEP 3.   The PEOs are communicated to the alumni and their suggestions are obtained.
  • STEP 4.   The PEOs are communicated to all the faculty members of the department and their feedback is obtained.
  • STEP 5.   The PEOs are then put to the Board of Studies of the department for final approval.
