The Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs)

The Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs) for the Mechatronics Engineering programme describe
the accomplishments that graduates are expected to attain within three (3) to five (5) years upon

The PEOs are dedicated to preparing the students in achieving advancement in careers at both the
national and international level, for the betterment of society, to be involved in entrepreneurial activities
and to engage in lifelong learning. Therefore, the PEOs become the main platform on which the
Programme Outcomes (POs) and Learning Outcomes (LOs) are structured. The PEOs are as below:

  1. Graduates who advance in career and professional standing nationally or internationally based on
    leadership and/or technical expertise in Mechatronics Engineering or related fields.
  2. Graduates who demonstrate moral and professional commitment for the betterment of society.
  3. Graduates who engage in entrepreneurial activities that apply engineering knowledge and technical
  4. Graduates who engage in lifelong learning through postgraduate education and/or continuous
    professional development.
