The process is intensive and objective to arrive at valuable information that can be made as a basis for improvement. After two stages of self-assessment of the Computer Engineering (CoE) conducted by 5 assessors composed of the students, faculty, nonacademic, alumni and employer, the external peer review was organized to validate the self-assessment report (SAR) prepared by the Self Assessment Committee (SAC) . The report was also reviewed by the IQAC to ensure that the report followed the standard in form and contents prescribed by UGC-Quality Assurance Unit (QAU).
