Continuous assessment on programme outcomes of chemical and biochemical engineering based on student’s feedback

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In the outcome based education (OBE) system, to ensure the targeted learning outcomes achieved at the end of each course, continuous improvement on the learning and teaching process is necessary. This study was conducted to evaluate the performance of students through the achievement of programme outcomes (POs) for Chemical and Biochemical Engineering students during their four years of study at the Department of Chemical and Process Engineering (JKKP), Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment, UKM. The assessment was conducted by distributing two types of questionnaire to the students during Majlis Mesra Bakal Graduan to get their feedback on the PO and Integrated Project (IP) implementation at the JKKP. The assessment results were compared with four previous academic sessions. The results show a slight increase in terms of PO performance and achievement. As well, some improvement has been implemented in the learning and teaching activities such as mentor-mentee program, enhancement in project design and introduction of i-lab poster presentation.
