Learning Outcomes for Teaching Engineering Courses

This webinar is from the IFEES GEDC webinar library.

Generally most engineering programs employ methods for developing learning outcomes, performance indicators and their rubrics that primarily focus on the fulfilment of accreditation requirements.

Therefore, a relatively small set of learning outcomes with generic performance indicators and their rubrics that are broad in application are usually developed at the program or course level. Typically engineering specializations teach students several hundred specific activities throughout the course of their curriculum delivery. Generic performance indicators do not adequately support holistic curriculum deliveries targeting coverage of all three Bloom’s learning domains and their learning levels. Consequently, their generic rubrics also present difficulty in characterizing these specific student learning activities and their skills levels. They cannot be accurately applied to assessment, scoring of specific student learning activities and create issues for inter or intra-rater reliability.

In this webinar, participants will learn the essential principles of an authentic Outcome Based Educational (OBE) model used for developing learning outcomes, generic and specific performance indicators and their rubrics for measuring specific skills related to Bloom’s 3 learning domains and their learning levels.

They will also be exposed to key perspectives that incorporate digitization of the assessment process. Presented by: Wajid Hussain (Senior Member, IEEE) is a renowned world expert on authentic OBE, QA processes, outcomes assessment, and program evaluation for accreditation using digital technology and software. He has extensive experience supporting and managing outcomes assessment and CQI processes to fulfill regional and ABET accreditation requirements. He joined the academic field coming from an intensive engineering background at Silicon Valley and more than 20 years’ experience with mass production expertise in a Billion-dollar microprocessor manufacturing industry.


Over the last two decades, he has managed scores of projects related to streamlining operations with the utilization of state-of-the-art technology and digital systems with significant experience working with ISO standard quality systems. He received the LSI Corporation Worldwide Operations Review 1999 Award for his distinguished contributions to the Quality Improvement Systems. He was the Lead Product Engineer supporting the Portal Player processor for Apple’s iPod plus many other world-famous products at LSI Corporation. He led the first ‘tuning’ efforts in the Middle East by developing a complex database of thousands of outcomes and hundreds of rubrics for the engineering disciplines at the Islamic University. He developed and implemented state-of-the-art Digital Integrated Q.
