Diagnosis

Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based


knowledge and research methods including design of experiments,
analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information
to provide valid conclusions.
Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques,
resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction
and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding
of the limitations.
The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the
contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and
cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the
professional engineering practice.
Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the
professional engineering solutions in social and environmental
contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for
sustainable development.
