Extent of Implementation and Influence of Outcomes-Based Education to Civil Engineering Students in Misamis University, Philippines

Nelfa D. Canini1 and Isidro M. Dalis2

The higher learning institutions in the Philippines have adopted the Outcomes-Based Education (OBE) as a new paradigm in the engineering curriculum to address the rising demand in the global engineering market. The paradigm focuses on what learners are expected to learn at the end of the program. This new educational approach was implemented in Misamis University, Ozamiz City as a platform for accreditation and enhancement of engineering programs. This study was conducted to determine the extent of implementation and the influence of OBE to civil engineering students in Misamis University, Philippines. Descriptive research design using a validated survey questionnaire was used in gathering data from the 89 civil engineering students. Key informant interview was conducted to obtain more information. Results revealed that OBE is moderately implemented in terms of practices and environment. The students perceived that OBE is somewhat influential in terms of academic, attitude and instruction. Moreover, there is a significant correlation between the extent of OBE implementation and the level of its influence. When grouped by year level, the findings revealed that there was a significant statistical difference between the means of the variables. Understanding this relationship may help the university guide the students to cope with the new educational approach and to find solutions to the identified concerns or problems with the OBE implementation.
