In ECE department SDC was founded in 2018. The goal was to develop basic skills of undergraduate students in their BS projects. As OBE is adopted widely, therefore, Program Education Objectives (PEOs) are the pressing outcomes of every young engineer. The fulfillment of PEOs will only be attained when CQI process is met successfully.
