Justification of CO-PO Mapping

The COs 1 to 3 are strongly associated with the application of basic concepts of maths, science and engineering for finding solutions to the engineering problems. Hence, they are given the highest affinity to PO1. The application of free body diagrams and area moment of inertia are mandatory for the analysis of load carrying members in chemical engineering process industries. Consequentially CO 1 is mapped weakly to P02 and COs 2 and 3 and strongly linked to P02. For the design and development of equipments used in process industries forces are to be represented in 3D.
Hence CO 1 is linked strongly with PO3. The application of CO 1 to 3 is desirable to conduct investigations of complex problems and they are weakly related to PO4. The COs 2 and 3 are moderately mapped with PS01as the core concepts envisaged in those COs are required for working in manufacturing and R&D sectors. PSO2 deals with the application of mathematical tools for efficient design. In that sense COs 2 and 3 are of relevance and they are connected moderately with PS 02 and CO1 is weakly linked.To plan and design equipments the knowledge of COs 1 ,2 is desirable . Eventually a moderate affinity is given for those COs with PSO3
