  • Print
Campus Report :
American International University-Bangladesh (AIUB) has recently launched Outcome Based Education (OBE) model in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) and Computer Engineering (COE) programs in the Faculty of Engineering from the current 2017-18 Fall semester.
OBE is an educational process that is focused at achieving certain specified outcomes.
The desired outcome is selected first and the curriculum, instructional materials and assessments like examinations, tests, quizzes, assignments, mini projects, case studies, grading etc. are created to support the intended outcome.
OBE focuses on how much and how well the students have learnt and what students can actually do after they are taught. Students are expected to be able to do more challenging tasks other than memorize and reproduce what was taught.
OBE is needed for future accreditation by Institution of Engineers Bangladesh (IEB) and ABET, USA and also to get recognition of AIUB engineering graduates by Washington Accord (WA) permanent member countries.
The daylong launching workshop was opened by Prof Dr Siddique Hossain, Dean of the faculty of engineering who explained the background, importance and gradual implementation plan of OBE.
Prof Dr Abdur Rahman, Director and Head of COE program and Prof Dr MA Mannan, Head of EEE program were trained before by IEB sponsored workshops on OBE conducted by three experts from Singapore and Malaysia.
