Appendix A




APPENDIX A


DOCUMENTS TO FOR ACCREDITATION



A.1 INTRODUCTION


The documents as prescribed below must be submitted in respect of the programme being accredited. It is the responsibility of the University / Faculty to provide accurate information and sufficient evidence for the purpose of evaluation.


The documents must contain information on, but not limited to the following:

  • general information and objectives of the programme;

  • the ways in which the programme addresses the objectives, including development of the generic graduate attributes and the attributes appropriate to any specialist title, and assists each student to meet the required outcomes;

  • teaching staff and students;

  • teaching facilities;

  • assessment and quality management system, and how it ensures that each graduand has met the required outcomes;

  • the methods used to secure external validation and critical comment on the programme objectives and outcomes, and to apply such comment to the continual improvement of the programme and the Faculty, and evidence of their effectiveness;

  • any other relevant information.


It should not be necessary to develop extensive documentation specifically for the purpose of accreditation. The purpose of accreditation is to evaluate the systems already in place, not to require their creation. In a well-managed university, most of the documentation requested should already exist.


An acceptable submission is likely to comprise a collection of existing documents, including a text providing a coherent overview. The overview text should address each of the criteria, and refer to the relevant supporting material to the extent that existing documentation provides evidence that the criteria are met.


Submission must be comprehensive, easily readable, and free-standing. The overview text must address each major point in a definitive way. It will not be sufficient merely to provide a collection of disparate items, or point to a web site, and leave the Board to find the relevant information and make the connection for itself.


A.2 DOCUMENTS TO BE SUBMITTED


The Faculty offering the programme should submit five (5) copies of documents based on Section A.3 for accreditation. The submitted documents should be concise, but of sufficient depth and detail, preferably not exceeding fifty pages. Other detailed information should be included as appendices. Documentation should be bound in one or more volumes for convenience and should include a Table of Contents.


The documents should also include:

  • The University Calendar;

  • The Handbook, Calendar supplement, or other official publication relating to the Engineering Faculty, and containing the public statement of programme’s details; and

  • University / Faculty/ Department prospectus.


The Board / Panel may at any stage request further information. If the submitted documents do not meet these guidelines, the applicants may be asked to re-apply and submit new documents.


A.3 INFORMATION TO BE MADE AVAILABLE


As a guide for the applicants, the following sections describe the format of information to be made available to the Panel. Additional information may be provided in support of the application.


SECTION 3


A.3.1 Organisation of the University


1.1 Management and Operation


The University of Peradeniya (www.pdn.ac.lk ) is the successor to the University of Ceylon established in 1942 as the first university in Sri Lanka (then Ceylon). In 1952 it was shifted to its current seat in Peradeniya – a satellite town of the city of Kandy – situated in the central hill country, 110 km from away from Colombo, the financial capital. The University is organized along a faculty structure. It currently has eight faculties: Agriculture, Allied Health Sciences, Arts, Dental Sciences, Engineering, Medicine, Science, Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science. The total number of undergraduate students is approximately 6600 while that of the post-graduate students is 1200. About 75% of the undergraduate students are provided with ‘on campus’ accommodation in 15 halls of residence located within the university campus.


The Faculty of Engineering of the university was established in 1950 while the then University of Ceylon was still in Colombo. In 1965 it was shifted to the current location on the left bank of the river Mahaweli in the main university campus at Peradeniya. Currently it has an undergraduate student population of about 2000.


The management and operational structure of the University of Peradeniya is shown in the chart below. This is the structure dictated by the relevant acts of parliament for all public universities in Sri Lanka. It follows the traditional university structures where the Council, with the Vice Chancellor as the Chairman, is the governing authority. The University Senate comprising all the full professors and the heads of department and two representatives from each of the eight faculties makes recommendations to the council on academic matters. These are in turn based on recommendations of the faculty boards of the eight faculties. The faculties are organized into a departmental structure based along disciplines involved. Members of the academic, academic support, and technical staff are attached to the departments.

A.3.1.1 Title and name of Chief Executive Officer of the University (e.g. Vice-Chancellor);

Vice Chancellor

Prof. H. Abeygunawardena




A.3.1.2 Name of the principal academic entity responsible for engineering education (e.g. Faculty of Engineering) hereinafter called the Faculty, names and relative sizes of comparable entities in other disciplines;

Prof. S.B.S. Abayakoon



A.3.2 Organisation of the Faculty


The Faculty of Engineering has eight departments and the Department of Mechanical Engineering is one of them. The other seven are the Departments of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Production Engineering, Chemical & Process Engineering, Computer Engineering, Engineering Management and Engineering Mathematics. Also, the Faculty of Engineering has several Units, namely the Computing Centre, English Language Teaching Unit, Engineering Workshop, Electronics Workshop, Audio Visual Unit, Engineering Education Unit, Engineering Design Centre and Engineering Library.


Within the Faculty of Engineering all academic matters are decided upon by the Faculty Board of Engineering comprising all permanent academic staff members, 3 representatives from industry, 2 representatives of the academic support staff and 2 student representatives. These decisions are conveyed as recommendations to the University Senate for ratification and then in turn to the University Council.


The administration of departments comes under the heads of the department who work under the direction of the Dean of the Faculty. The administration of units comes under the directors who work under the direction of the Dean of the Faculty and appointed from the academic staff of the Faculty of Engineering. The Deans of the faculties report to the Vice Chancellor who is the Chief Executive Officer of the University.


Senate

Faculty Board of Engineering

Within this structure the Department of Mechanical Engineering manages and operates the programmes in Mechanical Engineering under the general guidelines applicable to the Faculty of Engineering. These guidelines are determined by the Faculty Board of Engineering. These in turn have to comply with the general guidelines for the University (which are determined by the University Senate and the Council). In practice the department exercises a great deal of control regarding matters related to curriculum development, the quality of teaching and learning, industrial relevance, academic standards, and research. Matters related to strategic planning and resource planning are dealt with by the Faculty of Engineering in consultation with the departments. Matters related to financial allocations and investments is governed by the University Grants Commission in consultation and based on information from the universities. Decisions regarding the intake of students are mainly the domain of the University Grants Commission which consults the universities and faculties from time to time on the selection criteria.
