Relationship of Program Outcomes to Program Goals

The Program Goals, based on the needs of its constituents, are broad statements. On the other hand, the Program or Student Outcomes (POs or SOs), derived from Program Goals, are defined in measurable terms and represent the abilities and attributes of students at the time of their graduation. Accordingly, there must be a well-defined relationship between Program Outcomes and Program Goals as the former will assist in attaining the latter. For the EE program, this relationship is given in Table 1 which shows how SOs will prepare graduates to attain the Program Goals. The relationship between Program Outcomes and Program Goals are shown in the following table.
