Course Synopsis

Third Year Laboratory is a required course for third year students in Bachelor of Engineering degree program. This course requires students to conduct twelve experiments in six different laboratories (Basic Power, Basic Machine, Basic Communication, Instrumentation, Microprocessor and Basic Control). The students are grouped into 3-4 students. Each week, they are required to conduct an experiment in the lab within 3 hours. However, in this semester, the experiment will be conducted online. The assessment are based on group and individual assessment. Group assessment consist of 'pre-lab', 'short-report' and 'long-report', while the individual assessment is based on 'in-lab', 'oral-interview' and 'peer-review' assessment. Each group will submit only one short report at the end of each lab session. Each student is assigned to write only one long report based on one experiment that they have conducted for this course. This long report should be submitted within a week after the student performed the assigned experiment.

Course Outcomes:

At the end of the course the students should be able to:

    CO1    Use techniques, skills, modern engineering tools, instrumentation and software/hardware appropriately.

    CO2    Perform laboratory experiments with analytical observation.

    CO3    Work together in a team cooperatively to complete the laboratory experiment successfully.

    CO4    Communicate, analyze and interpret outcomes, both in writing and verbally, effectively.

Program Outcomes:

PO2.   Ability to conduct experiments and researches, perform analysis and interpret data for complex engineering problems.

PO4.  Ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools, instrumentation, software and hardware necessary for complex engineering practice with an understanding of their limitations.

PO6.  Ability to articulate ideas, communicate effectively, in writing and verbally, on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large.

PO7.    Ability to function effectively as an individual and as member or leader in diverse teams.
