OBE concept of education has become so much relevant in present context of industry requirement and other expectations of various stakeholders recruiting our graduates. Particularly, engineering graduates are more required to practise the concept and assess themselves in the framework if the learning goes into appropriate direction to meet achieve the expected outcome. Programme outcomes (POs) are based on extensive contributions due to several factors that are derived from course outcomes (COs); which are further derived from unit and chapter outcomes. This paper recommends few pragmatic approaches of mapping the POs with lecture based ordination that might differ again from topic based concept. The recommendation explicitly describes how each lecture could contribute towards meeting overall PO of a particular programme. The emphasis has been given to engineering and technology based education and its impact on society and development of nation. The way one could develop few skills of employability skills, has also been suggested.
