Program Outcomes(PO's)
Automobile Engineering Graduates will be able to,

Engineering knowledge:
Apply  the  knowledge  of  mathematics,  science,  engineering fundamentals,  and  an  engineering  specialization  to  the solution  of complex engineering problems.
Problem analysis:
Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering    problems   reaching    substantiated    conclusions   using   first   principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
Design/development of solutions:
Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
Conduct investigations of complex problems:
Use    research-based    knowledge   and   research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
Modern tool usage:
Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
The engineer and society:
Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
