Outcome Based Education (OBE)

Outcome Based Education (OBE) has been the emphasis here in FKAAS, primarily in curriculum design and delivery. OBE is simply a concept that sets each part of an educational system around targeted goals or outcomes. These targeted goals or outcomes which should be tangible and measurable are then translated into a quantity with the purpose to reflect the quality of the educational system. Every student is deemed to have achieved these targeted goals or outcomes by the end of their educational experience in FKAAS. Here at FKAAS, we esteem in highlighting the achieved outcomes of our programmes. This section presents the Programme Educational Objectives (PEO) and Programme Learning Outcomes (PLO) for our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.
