Abstract

In this paper, the curriculum restructuring of the programs at JKEES which has been revised for continual quality improvement is presented. The review process, not only fulfill the EAC and the MQA requirement but also to enhance the employability of JKEES graduates. The curriculum is also designed to meet the needs of industry. The curriculum for the three programs offered by JKEES have been reviewed extensively in order for the program to be more relevant and focused on the needs of the program. Among the major changes that were implemented in the new curriculum are the introduction of new core and electives courses, dissolution of some of the existing courses and improvement of the existing course content. In order to enhance the professional skills of graduates, courses on Engineering and Built Environment Professionalism I and II have been introduced. Almost all of the core courses were placed under the department. The new curriculum has been implemented starting from Semester I 2010- 2011 academic sessions.
