21st Century Challenge in education is to ensure that at the end of 'a four year' programme of study, graduates need to demonstrate the mastery of not only a well chosen set of domain specific learning objectives, but also a set of domain independent learning outcomes. This is required to make engineering education system more learner-centric and ensure mastery over not only domain knowledge but also over the knowledge, skills and attitudes like the following:
- UG engineering students need to take considerably more responsibility for their own learning than is the case at present.
- Learning to learn, communication skills, working in groups are to be important learning outcomes in addition to domain specific knowledge.
- Within limits, learners are to be allowed to follow their own pace, learning styles so that individual differences are largely taken care of.
- Allow continuous improvement in curricular, incorporation of better open educational resource, more effective teaching -learning strategies, as teachers, students, experts, users continue to give valuable inputs through course websites.
