10. Communication – Communicate effectively on complex manufacturing 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 and Finance – 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;

12.  Life Long 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.

External Assessors

Other methods of ongoing assessment of the relevancy of the programme include the external examiners’ evaluation and the industrial advisory panel’s assessment. For the external examiners’ evaluation, the most recent evaluation was done by Professor Ir. Dr. Shahrum Abdullah who has visited Materials Engineering Programme on 4th October 2017. Previously, there was a visit from the Professor Dr. Stephen John Bull from Newcastle University, United Kingdom on 4 to 5th April 2016. The evaluation made by Prof Ir. Dr. Shahrum Abdullah on the relevancy of the PEO is provided in J Docs C6. Apart from that, the comments received from external examiners and the relevant actions taken are described in Chapter 8. The Materials Engineering Programme is also seeking the advice from the professional or practicing engineers from the industry via Industrial Advisory Panel (IAP). The most recent evaluation was done by Dr. Low Kin Onn on 11 July 2017. The relevant documented evidence is provided in J Docs C5. In Chapter 8, further description is given on the IAP and the feedback received from IAP and other stakeholders.

Programme Educational Objectives (PEO)

The PEOs were consistently formulated based on the IIUM mission and KOE mission. The Materials Programme is preparing graduates to achieve the followings in their career and professional accomplishments, within three (3) to five (5) years following graduation. The PEOs are as below;

  1. Graduates who advance in career and professional standing nationally or internationally based on leadership and/or technical expertise.
  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 skills.
  4. Graduates who engage in lifelong learning through postgraduate education and/or continuous professional development.

This Programme Educational Objectives are clearly stated in the official websites of the Kulliyyah of Engineering (http://www.iium.edu.my/engineering/about-us/mission-vision-peos-pos) (as shown in J Docs C2) as well as posted in several strategic locations around the campus. Students are also made aware of the objectives from the beginning of their study during the session with the Dean on the Taaruf (orientation) week. They are also reminded from time to time throughout the duration of study such as in the majoring briefing session

Industry Advisory Panel
Materials Engineering at IIUM has established an Industry Advisory Panel (IAP) consisting of industry experts who provide strategic advice on our education and research activities and senior academics.
Benchmarking

The comparison of the Materials Engineering Programme with similar Materials Engineering programme of renowned universities is presented in Table 1.5.
