Abstract

The Program Outcomes (PO) of the Department of Chemical and Process Engineering (JKKP) is designed to ensure that the students enrolled in the department attain the objectives set by the Program Educational Objectives (PEO). Thus, evaluation was conducted on student achievement vis-à-vis the PO program to assess the extent to which the PO was achieved and to identify opportunities for quality improvement. As the method adopted in this study, PO achievement was evaluated through the student accomplishment in one of the core courses and in a final course in JKKP, namely, the Final Year Project (FYP) for the academic year (AY) 2012–2013. Students in both programs at JKKP - the Chemical Engineering Program (KK) and the Biochemical Engineering Program (KB) - were assessed for their performance in FYP. Their PO achievement was analyzed based on their acquired FYP performance. Both programs generally achieved excellent POs, and higher PO achievements were obtained mostly by students who had a higher cumulative grade point average (CGPA). Opportunities of improving the learning process based on this PO evaluation are proposed in this article to enhance the quality of learning in future AYs and to ensure that the PEO of JKKP is achieved.
