Capstone Project Learning Outcomes


At the completion of the course, the students must demonstrate to attain the following Course Learning Outcomes and Students Outcomes.

Course Learning Outcomes:

  1. Define design objectives, design constraints and product specifications according to the stakeholder and project requirements.
  2. Collect and review related data such as technical information, regulations, and standards etc. from credible literature resources, published research, and patents etc. to generate solutions.
  3. Manage concept generation and concept evaluation process, analyze and compare design alternatives/possible solutions, at the system and subsystem levels, and use measures of performance or other criteria to rank alternatives.
  4. Execute the design strategy and project plan (work breakdown structure) to ensure timely and within-budget completion of the project.
  5. Design a system to meet the design criteria and constraints (such as cost, economic, resource availability, environment, sustainability, safety, manufacturability, assembly, reliability, testing and maintenance, and product life cycle considerations).
  6. Execute manufacturing/ simulation/ implementation plan by selecting the suitable manufacturing/ simulation/ implementation techniques.
  7. Verification and validation of the project objectives according to the relevant engineering standards/ requirements/ design criteria.
  8. Understand the significance of relevant engineering standards for materials, components, manufacturing and product qualification.
  9. Understand the major characteristics of engineering drawings and generate engineering drawings according to the technical drawing standards (layout, assembly drawing, parts drawings, etc.)
  10. Manage design documentation and communication (both orally and in writing) using language and graphics appropriate to the technical discipline, with the necessary supporting material, to achieve desired understanding and impact.

Student Outcomes:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics. 
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
