The Mechanical Engineering Department has established the following objectives of the undergraduate program in support of our mission and that of the University.  Graduates are expected to be able to attain these objectives within 5 years following graduation:

 

PEO1: Develop knowledge, skills (including transferable skills, such as leadership, motivation, time management, prioritization, delegation, listening, communication, analytics) and understanding, as well as awareness and “know how”, in the fields of engineering and its related disciplines so that as graduates they will be equipped to enter into self-employment and employment as professional engineers progressing on to Registered Engineer or equivalent status) or a wide range of other professional careers.

 

PEO2: Prepare them to engage in life-long and critical enquiry with skills in research and knowledge acquisition and an appreciation of the value of education to the wider community.

 

PEO3: Provide them with internationally recognized qualifications which meet and exceed the requirements of the COREN Outcome-Based Education Benchmark for Engineering Programmes in Nigeria and international Benchmark Statements for Engineering for ABET, Engineering Council, UK, etc.

 

PEO4: Provide the engineering industry and profession, in Nigeria and elsewhere, with ready employable and enterprising graduates prepared for the assumption of technical, managerial and financial responsibilities.

 

PEO5: Achieve the above in the contexts of the Covenant University Vision 10:2022 business plans, following the University’s policies and procedures and conforming to the relevant sections of the Quality and Academic Standards (QAS) guidelines.

 

1.2       Programme Outcomes (POs)/ Student Outcomes (SOs):

 

a. Engineering knowledge

Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of developmental and complex engineering problems.

 

b. Problem Analysis

Identify, formulate, research literature and analyse developmental and complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.

 

c. Design /development of solutions

Proffer solutions for developmental or complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal and environmental considerations

 

d. Investigation

Conduct investigation into developmental or complex problems using research based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions.

 

e. Modern Tool
Usage

Create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources and modern engineering and ICT tools, including prediction, modelling and optimization to developmental and complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations.

 

f. The Engineer and Society

Apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge including Humanities and Social Sciences to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice

 

g. Environment & Sustainability

Understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development.

 

h. Ethics

Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice, including adherence to the COREN Engineers Code of Conducts.

 

i. Individual and Team work

Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multi-disciplinary settings.

 

j. Communication

Communicate effectively on developmental or complex 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.

 

k. Project Management and Finance

Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering, management and financial principles and apply these to one's own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multi-disciplinary environments.

 

l. Lifelong learning

Recognize the need for, and have the preparations and ability to engage in independent and lifelong learning in the broadest context of technological and social changes.

 

1.3       Constituencies.

In order to have first-hand information on the impact of the Mechanical Engineering programme on our alumni towards achieving the twelve student outcomes that are mapped to the program educational objectives, the following are the significant constituencies:

 

Faculty: Faculty members are directly involved in the implementation of the student outcomes and assessment processes of the analysis and review of the objectives and outcomes.

 

Alumni: this group of stakeholders look forward to the continued quality and reputation of the programme as it in-turn shows the quality of the education acquired. The alumni most have been employed for 3-5 years and recent graduate of the programme. They have the experience on both sides of the wall to assess the PEOs and SOs.

 

Graduate/Alumni Employers: the positive assessment of the program by employers translates into opportunities for graduates of the program.

 

Advisory Board: this group is made up of representative of the industry, employers of our graduates, alumni, faculty and current students.

 

COREN: An important stakeholder is the national regulatory agency called COREN which stand for the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria. This body accredits universities in Nigeria to run programmes in Nigeria. The Benchmark for Minimum Academic Standard (BMAS) must be met as a standard has been set to meet the Washington Accord. The requirement for the program educational objectives (PEO) for engineering programmes was embedded into the Benchmark for Minimum Academic Standard (BMAS) of the regulatory agency for engineering education in the year 2017 and subsequently the College of Engineering at Covenant University formulated hers and was approved by the University Senate. In existence prior to 2017, employer assessment was conducted once for a maximum period of 5 years. Focus from henceforth is to conduct survey of graduates/alumni and graduate/alumni -employer. A follow-up shall consist of discussion of a Faculty Committee or faculty members of the assessment criteria and results with the advisory board of the Department on an annual basis. For the first 5 years, the survey shall be annually and later every 3 years for consistent follow-up

 

Graduate/Alumni Follow-up Survey

This provides a means of alumni accessing how well the programme has prepared them for the industry based on the PEO’s and Student Outcomes. In detail, their status in the industry o company shall be established, including general personal and employer information and assessing the relevance and required update of the PEO’s towards their professional development. A survey shall be prepared to meet this requirement.

 

Graduate/Alumni – Employer Follow-up Survey

The survey is essentially similar in attributes to the Graduate Follow-up Survey. Its focuses on the activities of the graduate meeting the PEO’s and Student Outcomes in an objective and unbiased manner as compared to the graduate survey.

 

Advisory Board Review

The meeting for deliberations and feedback of the survey is on an annual basis. Members of the board shall consist of individuals in various companies in the oil and gas industry that covers all the Civil Engineering disciplines of drilling, production and reservoir engineering, and reservoir characterization as well as professionals in emerging technologies application. Other members shall be alumni of the programme.
