Abstract: Seminar is a course offered to 8th semester Civil engineering students. The course requirement is individual work by the student applying engineering concepts, defining problem statement, investigating into the problem, finding solutions and presentation. The course has been designed as two stages. This paper is a review paper on the demonstration of the implementations of OBE in the design of the course and the method of assessment. The design of the course aims at transforming the student to demonstrate his core competencies, be able to innovate solutions and emerge with leadership skills and a sense of responsibility. Assessment is based on the methodology, presentation, reporting, justification of the usefulness of seminar paper, quality of slides, presentation, Interim report and Final Report. The design of the course is based on higher order thinking level of the Blooms taxonomy, each of the course outcomes mapped with the program outcomes. Rubrics are designed for effective assessment. Detailed work can be carried out further, on this work in terms of working out the competencies and the Performance level Indicators to qualify the Program outcomes, mapped with the Course outcomes, for qualifying the exact expectations from the student.
