ASSIGNMENT 2B (OBE)

  1. CLO: “Describe the operation principles of the various building services installation and the economic aspects of the different systems”.
  2. The students are expected to be able to describe:
    1. The operation principles of the various building services installation; and
    2. The economic aspects of the different systems of building services installation.
      • Apart from a test and final examination, this CLO is addressed via an individual assignment.
      • Through an individual assignment, students are expected to select one type of services from the list given to them and visit any building in UTM that has the type of the service chosen.
      • Students are then expected to record their findings of the service components via photographs, interviews and components sheet record.
      • The students should then prepare an individual poster on an A3 size paper and include the description of the services chosen.
      • The students are also expected to suggest other systems in comparison with what they have covered and discussed on the economic aspect of it.
  3. The CLO fall under ‘Technical Knowledge‘.
  4. The CLO fall under ‘Technical Knowledge’. Hence, MoHE GS elements are irrelevant.
  5. The outcome is addressing the cognitive domain.
  6. The level of taxonomy is Cognitive domain at Level 2 (C2 – understanding).
  7. The CLO intends to measure the student’s understanding via their ability to describe the operation principles of the various building services installation and the economic aspects of the different systems. The expected outcome is reflected (hence measured) by their ability to sketch schematic details of various building service components covered, and then to describe the mechanics of the services involved. This facilitates the student’s understanding of the weekly topics. The intended CLO is measured through a test, final exam and assignment.
  8. The CLO will be delivered through weekly lecture, visit construction sites, guest lecture by invited Facilities Manager and interactive discussion in class.
  9. The CLO is addressing PO1 that is “Capable of acquiring knowledge and understanding of quantity surveying and related knowledge and practices”.
  10. The CLO presented as it is now is deliverable, measurable and achievable. Despite, there is a need to break the CLO into two of its components (operation principles and economic aspects) instead of combining both components together. This way, students would be able to grasp the key operation principles of services covered and making the assessment even more objective.
