PO's, PSO's and CO's

Arignar Anna Govt. Arts and Science College has adopted outcome-based education which is a student-centric education model that maps and measures students’ performance at every step. The Program Outcomes, Program Specific Outcomes and Course Outcomes are the essential part of education system. POs, PSOs and COs for all programs offered by the institution are stated and displayed in website of the institution. They are stated and communicated to the students and teachers in a well-planned manner.
