Outcomes-Based Education

Outcomes-Based Education (OBE) is a comprehensive approach to organizing and operation an education system that is focused on and defined by the successful demonstrations of learning sought from each student. (Spady, 1994)

It is a learner-centered approach that focuses on what the learner should be able ‘to know’, understand and demonstrate. (Botha, 2002)

The College of Engineering started the adoption of the OBE System in the School year 2015-2016 as per CMO 37, series of 2012, converting the old Engineering CMOs to OBE.

With the implementation of OBE. the college formulated its OBE Framework, Program Educational Objectives (PEOs), and Program Outcomes presented in the following sections.
