Outcome-based education (OBE) is an educational theory that bases each part of an educational system around goals or outcomes. By the end of the educational experience, each student should have achieved the goal. OBE is education based on producing educational outcomes that:
- Focuses on what students can do after they are taught
- Expect all learners/students to successfully achieve level of knowledge and abilities
Outcome-based education is a globally recognised educational methodology that focuses on measuring student outcomes and using corrective steps to address shortcomings in course delivery techniques, assessment, and student attitude, among other things.
The curriculum is structured with specified Course Outcomes to equip graduates to attain the graduate qualities or Programme Outcomes at the point of graduation.
The Programme Outcomes (POs) are explicitly mapped to the Course Outcomes of the related courses and are directly connected to relevant courses. Individual students’ POs attainment will be regularly measured throughout their studies based on their performance in each course. The POs are intended to generate graduates who are well-prepared to meet the Programme Educational Objectives 3 – 5 years after graduation.
To meet the demands of a complex and international workplace, the Programme Educational Objectives and Programme Outcomes were developed in conjunction with all important stakeholders (employers, alumni, and students).
