Abstract: This paper describes a method for the assessment of professional student outcomes (performance-type outcomes or soft skills).

Assessment activities include faculty and peer evaluation that measure professional student outcomes of teamwork, life-long learning and communication skills including oral and written communication and presentation skills. The evaluation is performed and the results are discussed with the students and faculty for feedback purposes to establish more relationship between quality assurance and continuous improvement of professional student outcomes crucial for engineers to be successful in their profession.
