Abstract


The Department of Civil & Structural Engineering (JKAS), Faculty of Engineering & Built Environment, has prescribed program outcomes (POs) that include environmental and sustainable development components (ASPL) to meet the requirements put forth by the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC). Two programs are offered to students: the Civil & Structural Engineering Program and the Civil & Environmental Engineering Program. Therefore, the relevant courses are compulsory to prepare the Course Outcomes (COs) in accordance with teaching plans and to measure to what extent students have achieved the specified POs. This paper discusses the assessment and relationship between COs and POs for the ASPL component made within three specific courses at JKAS, which aims to determine the suitability of the ASPL component by correlating measurements of COs and POs of related courses. It is important to develop the best possible ASPL component measurement model for both study programs offered in JKAS.
