COURSE OUTCOMES AND COURSES OFFERED

A course is described in 3 to 6 course outcomes.

  • All the courses in the department have certain uniform number of Cos and two courses cannot have identical outcomes.
  • The COs must state the major skills, knowledge, attitude or ability that students will acquire.
  • Course Outcomes are narrower statements that describe what students are expected to know and be able to do at the end of each course.
  • COs relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviour that students acquire in their enrolment through the course. Therefore, COs are what students are required to demonstrate at the end of a course and is a subset of POs and PSOs. COs should be observable and measurable.
  • COs should be expressed in terms of measurable and/or observable behaviours.
  • Course outcomes begin with an action verb from Bloom’s taxonomy.

Laboratories - Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering

 

“Engineering without labs (and design) is a different discipline. If we cut out labs (and design) we might as well rename our degrees Applied Mathematics”

The Department of ECE has set up the prescribed laboratory facilities to impart hands-on training to the students to practice what they learn in classrooms.
The goals for the Laboratory Courses include the following
Experimental skills: Students can experiment with a variety of skills involved in doing engineering work. These include specific psychomotor skills, planning an experiment, recording, analyzing and interpreting data, and using modern measuring instruments.
Real-world: Students can learn to function in a real-world environment where they can learn to distinguish reality from theory
Build objects: Students can build and test their designs. They gain a sense of craftsmanship.
Discovery: Students can discover results which can improve the theory and reinforce their ability to predict the outputs of using convolute devices.
Equipment: Students can work with modern equipment, which adds a tangible aspect to theoretical education. While working with gadgetry, students can also learn about the importance of safety.
Motivation and Teamwork: Laboratories learnings are team efforts, and students can learn to function as part of a team. It can include an opportunity to be the team leader.
Communication: Students can emphasize both written and oral communication skills through preparation, progress, and final reports.

The respective lab course instructors manage the best possible working of hardware in all laboratories.  Faculty members maintain up the stock register, and reviews to ensure availability of right equipment and tools at the right time in the right quantities. We maintain first aid kits in all laboratories. And also, we keep well maintained and periodically checked fire extinguishers in every building towards ensuring fire safety for the inmates.
