5. Develop critical, originative and asking heads that pose inquiries, work out jobs, concept

accounts, justice statements and do informed determinations in scientific and other contexts.

6. Develop consciousness of the possibilities and restrictions of scientific discipline and appreciate that scientific

cognition is germinating through collaborative activity locally and internationally.

7. Appreciate the relationship between scientific discipline and engineering and their function in society.

8. Develop consciousness of the moral, ethical, societal, economic, political, cultural and environmental deductions of the pattern and usage of scientific discipline and engineering.
