Abstract


The model of outcome-based education is based on achieving attainments at the end of each course by the students in any undergraduate or postgraduate program. It was implemented in all technical institutions of India as per the guidelines of All India Council for Technical Education, India. The attainments are calculated by deploying some direct and indirect tools. This include courses results, placements, projects and various surveys like alumni, employer etc. The paper discusses the attainment of Program Educational Objectives and Program Outcomes for any undergraduate or postgraduate program. In outcome-based education, certain targets are to be set on the basis of previous year performance of students and these targets are achieved in the form of attainments. In this research, a comparative study of last three batches of a postgraduate course is done in the form of attainments.
