Outcome Based Education—Some Initiatives
Abstract: Engineers & technologists contribute significantly in our social development, economic progress, and enhancement of social and physical infrastructure. Industry in general and manufacturing in particular are facing unprecedented challenges due to globalization. Consequently, the business environment of manufacturing enterprises is facing increasing complexity. The engineering graduates and researchers with the ability to understand the technological complexities, the creative arts and skills are increasingly sought after by industrial and business world. Team-based activities are of great importance for students to learn and tackle and solve the complex global issues at later life. Self study and own initiatives of engineering students at learning stage enable and sharpen them to emerge out as highly acceptable engineers. The Washington Accord which emphasizes on outcome based learning is gaining increasing acceptance among many countries.
