Introduction

Civil Engineering is a challenging profession that is concerned with the techniques and procedures by which tall building, airports, ports, bridges , dams, and reservoirs, water supply and sewage disposal systems, transport systems and other structures are designed, surveyed, built and maintained. A civil engineer should be equipped with the knowledge and know-how of managing projects effectively in safe environment.

The Faculty of Civil Engineering at UiTM began in 1967 with the introduction of the Diploma in Civil Engineering programme, under the School of Engineering. With subsequent development and expansion, the school was restructured into three faculties in 1996; the Faculty of Civil Engineering , the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering.

At present, the Faculty of Civil Engineering consists of four Centres of Studies, namely :-

  • Structural Engineering and Computing
  • Geotechnical , Transportation and Surveying
  • Water Resources and Environmental Systems
  • Construction Engineering and Project Management


Faculty of Civil Engineering ( Fakulti Kejuruteraan Awam - FKA ) UiTM Pahang began its operations in December 1999. At the moment FKA Pahang offers a diploma in Civil Engineering ( EC 110 ) programme .By June 2013, FKA has approximately 854 students currently studying in UiTM Pahang.

OBE

About OBE

OBE focuses on students achieving outcomes (required attributes, skills, qualities) after undergoing the learning process through the OBE curriculum. The attainment of the outcomes are a learning process that may temporally vary from one student to the other; regarded as means and not the end objectives. If the outcomes are not attained, they are rethought, thus ensuring the Continual Quality Improvement (CQI) takes place in the education system. OBE shifts the paradigm from the teacher-centered to the student-centered learning. The new teaching and learning (T&L) approach transforms from an emphasis on traditional input, such as course credits earned and hours spent in class, to results or outcomes. It focuses on empirically measuring student performance, or the outcomes. OBE implementation requires that students demonstrate that they have learned the required knowledge and developed the required skill and attributes.

OBE Components

OBE comprises of four (4) major components which cover (1) curriculum design, (2) teaching and learning methods, (3) assessment, and (4) continual quality improvement (CQI) and monitoring. It addresses the following key questions; what do you want the students to have and able to do?, how can you best help students achieve it?, how will you know what they have achieved?, and how do you close the loop?

OBE Implementation Process

The OBE implementation process encompasses the establishment of Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs), followed by Programme Outcomes (POs), designing curriculum, teaching and learning (T & L) methods, assessment, CQI and monitoring. 
PEOs are formulated in line with institutional mission statement and stakeholders' interests. It also addresses the graduate attainment within 3 to 5 years after their graduation. Programme Outcomes (POs), which consist of abilities to be attained by students before they graduate, are formulated based on the PEOs. POs address knowledge, skills and attributes to be attained by students.

Relationship between lesson topics, CO, PO and PEO

  • Topics lead to lesson outcomes
  • Group/individual lesson outcomes lead to course outcome (CO)
  • Course outcomes must relate to programme outcomes (PO)
  • Programme outcomes must address the programme objectives (PEO) (What kind of "engineer" are we producing?)

Programme Educational Objective (PEO)

There are four PEOs which are implemented and practiced in Diploma in Civil Engineering that are consistent with the Vision & Mission of the Faculty and stakeholders’ requirements.

  • PEO1 : Civil engineering technician who is competent in applying knowledge and practical skills in civil engineering and pursuing further knowledge for higher qualification.
  • PEO2 : Civil engineering technician who able to apply various scientific skills in solving variety civil engineering problems.
  • PEO3 : Civil engineering technician who able to demonstrate good teamwork, social skills and responsibilities with positive values, ethics, moral and professionalism.
  • PEO4 : Civil engineering technician who able to lead and demonstrate effective information management, lifelong learning and entrepreneurial skills
