- Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs)
The Department of Petroleum Engineering has established the following objectives of the undergraduate program in support of our mission and that of the University. Graduates are expected to be able to attain these objectives within 5 years following graduation:
PEO1: Develop knowledge, skills (including transferable skills, such as leadership, motivation, time management, prioritization, delegation, listening, communication, and analytics), and understanding, as well as awareness and “know-how”, in the fields of petroleum engineering and its related disciplines so that as graduates they will be equipped to enter into self-employment and employment as professional petroleum engineers progressing on to Registered Engineer or equivalent status or a wide range of other professional careers.
PEO2: Prepare them to engage in life-long and sound judgment with skills in research and knowledge acquisition and an appreciation of the value of education to the wider community.
PEO3: Provide them with internationally recognized qualifications that meet and exceed the requirements of the COREN Outcome-Based Education Benchmark for Engineering Programmes in Nigeria and international Benchmark Statements for Engineering for ABET, Engineering Council, UK, etc.
PEO4: Provide the petroleum engineering industry and profession, in Nigeria and elsewhere, with ready employable, and enterprising graduates prepared for the assumption of technical, managerial and financial responsibilities.
PEO5: Achieve the above in the contexts of the University of Ibadan Vision plans, following the University’s policies and procedures and conforming to the relevant sections of the Quality and Academic Standards (QAS) guidelines.
Programme (or Course Learning) Outcomes (POs)
The POs are as follows:
Engineering knowledge - Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of developmental and complex engineering problems
Problem Analysis – Identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze developmental and complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
Design/Development of Solutions - Proffer solutions for developmental or complex engineering problems and design systems, components, or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations
Investigation - Conduct investigation into developmental or complex problems using research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions.
Modern Tools Usage - Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources and modern engineering and ICT tools, including prediction, modelling and optimization to developmental and complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations.
The Engineer and Society - Apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge including Humanities and Social Sciences to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice
Environment & Sustainability - Understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development
Ethics - Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice, including adherence to the COREN Engineers Code of Conducts.
Individual & Teamwork - Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multi-disciplinary settings.
Communication - Communicate effectively on developmental or complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
Project Management & Finance - Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering, management and financial principles and apply these to one's own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multi-disciplinary environments
Lifelong Learning - Recognize the need for, and have the preparations and ability to engage in independent and lifelong learning in the broadest context of technological and social changes
