Program Learning Outcomes

Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs) are "statements that describe what learners will know and be able to do when they graduate from a program", according to one source. We have a page (here) where we list our PLOs (@bottom of page). We also have a mapping (@ bottom of page) to show how each PLO is addressed by each course in the roadmap (all roadmaps are linked from here).
