The following program outcomes were achieved from the talk: 

  • Ability to describe key concepts in programming languages 
  • Ability to analyze and interpret data using WEKA 
  • Ability to solve mathematics and engineering problems with computer programming methods 
  • Ability to develop and value a program for real-world engineering applications 

The participants found the workshops informative and hoped for more participation in similar activities in future to enhance their programming skills.
