The University’s Academic Council proposes a number of principles to guide the design of all academic programs.
- Outcome-Centric – The programs are designed with explicit learning outcomes in mind. Each subject within a program is designed to contribute to the program outcomes. The faculty review the program on regular basis to ensure that it is fulfilling its stated program outcomes.
- Academically Rigorous - The academic breadth and depth of the program is consistent with that found at other leading universities and that there are minimum standards of academic capability required to successfully complete a program.
- Authentically Assessed – Students are given the opportunity to apply their learning to real-world problems or analogous to the kind of problems that they are likely to face in the real world.
- Flexibly Delivered –The programs are designed to be flexible so that students can balance their studies with work, family and other commitments that they might have.
- Industry-Advised. We consult widely with industry experts to design our programs.
- Work-Ready. We believe students should be ready to productively enter the workforce.
