Abstract

Outcome based engineering education is a paradigm shift from traditional knowledge-based education to modern skill-based education. After the Washington Accord, the engineering education all over the world has adopted the new pedagogy for Engineering Education. But last year, after the hit of COVID – 19 pandemics, most of the education system has to move online. The online education platform raised a new challenge for Outcome Based Education. In this paper, the effect of Online education on OBE implemented B.Sc. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering program has been analyzed and the attainment performance of the Program Outcomes has been presented. With this empirical evidence it has been demonstrated that with careful implementation and encouragement OBE can achieve its potential even with Online education.
