COURSES DETAILS

MATHEMATIC-I (CALCULUS)

Course Objectives

• To impart elementary concept of functions, limits, derivatives, differential formulae, and integration of algebraic and transcendental functions.
• Enhance the knowledge of students about concept of partial differentiation and indeterminate forms of function that are used in solving different types of differentiation problems. Offer plentiful knowledge and skills in solving relevant mathematical problems in engineering and architecture.
Course Outcome
• Broadly describe the concept of functions, limits and derivatives.

• Calculate elementary probabilities.
• Compute probabilities related to normal random variables.
• Construct confidence intervals.
• Construct and evaluate hypothesis tests.

MATHEMATICS- IV (NUMERICAL METHODS)

Course Objectives

The objectives of this course are:

• To review and implement the basic principles of interpolation and polynomial approximation, numerical integration, solving simple ordinary differential equations.

Course Outcomes

• Upon completion of this course the student will be able to use numerical techniques to investigate case studies in civil engineering.
 

ISLAMIC STUDIES/SOCIOLOGY

Course Objectives

• The objective of this course is a radical departure from the conventional pattern of Islamic Studies in our schools and colleges. The purpose here is not to fill students with information about Islam, but to show how they may go about their enquiry and arrive at their own understanding of Islam. The focus, then, is on Methodology: above all, on gaining direct access to the Quran; not relying on hearsay or mindlessly accepting the interpretation of others.

Course Outcomes

• The core of the “core issues” in this course is the “Understanding of the Quran”. The course aims to build up the character of the students and intends to cover the fundamentals of Islam.
 

PAKISTAN STUDIES

Course Objective             

• To promote patriotism in Pakistani youth as its objective, this is a compulsory course for the students of undergraduate classes of all disciplines.
• This syllabus seeks to provide student with an understanding of the interactive internal external forces and their impact in shaping the political, economic, technological and social developments in Pakistan.

 

Course Outcomes

• Recognize the important events that lead to the creation of Pakistan and the real concept behind its creation.
• Quaid’s concept of a real secular and modern Islamic state.
• Examine the current situation in the light of the past.
• Appreciate various perspectives and develop their own historical understanding
• Foster the attitudes of objectivity, open mindedness and curiosity.
 
 

COMMUNICATION & INTERPERSONAL SKILLS

Course Objective             

• The course focuses on a wide spectrum of communication and interpersonal skills. It will give interpersonal communication a new face and enable the students to communicate more effectively. These course further attempts to explain, simplify, justify and suggest solutions to what students feel, experience and ultimately communicate as individuals in their personal, social and professional aspects of life.
• For most students, it is a terrifying experience to communicate effectively, particularly when placed in an unfamiliar situation and having to communicate in a language that they are not comfortable with, for example ‘English’. This course aims to simplify communication down to its very basic level and gradually giving learners the confidence to communicate effectively in more challenging situations. Students will learn that communication is not only vital for survival but is also a very powerful tool.
• One of the basic aims of this course is to make students understand that communication is a dynamic interactive process that involves the effective transmission of facts, ideas, thoughts, feelings and values. It is not passive and does not just happen; we actively and consciously engage in communication in order to develop information   and understanding required to become an effective member of society. 

Course Outcomes

Students will be able to:
• Explain the advantages and disadvantages of self-disclosure.
• Demonstrate active listening skill.
• Write clearly and concisely about their own interpersonal skills
• Analyze strengths and weaknesses in their own communication styles.
• Differentiate between their public and private selves.
• Use feedback from others to communicate more effectively in conversation.
• Take responsibility for their own verbal and non-verbal acts of communication
• Explain the Johari Window process.
 

TECHNICAL BUSINESS WRITING

Course Objectives

• To equip the student with such writing skills as may form useful foundation to respond with proficiency to job-seeking situation, initial office correspondence/tasks or to pursue higher education/research at postgraduate level.

Course Outcomes

• After completing the course, students would have learnt the theories and concepts that underlie effective technical communication. They will learn to collect, organize, analyze and present information in an understandable and logical order, understand the nature of non verbal communication and be able to use it effectively in oral and written presentations.
 

PROFESSIONAL ETHICS

Course Objectives

• The objectives of the course is to give the concept of Profession, Ethics, Character, Personality, Moral Code of Islam, Morality, Attitudes that Deliver, Role of Heredity and Environment in the Development of Personality and Character, Motivation and Incentives, Sociology of Profession (Work), Inter-Personal Relations (Employer---Employee relationship), Morale, Grievances, Welfare, Problem-Solving and Decision-Making.
 
 

Course Outcomes

• The outcome of this course is to grasp ideals and principles as they have been spelled out in a variety of traditional ethical systems and to apply these conceptual structures and guidelines to major problems and dilemmas of doing business and living in society.  Some specific outcomes will be:
• To grasp important historical approaches to ethics.
• To gauge the impact of individual and corporate decisions on human life, society, and the environment.
