Outcome-Based Education (OBE) implementation is one of the qualifying requirements for engineering programme accreditation in Malaysia.  Implementation of the OBE in Integrated Design Project (IDP) is essential in producing high quality engineering graduates that are able to meet the challenges especially in the era of Industry 4.0 in Malaysia.  IDP is the course offered to the final year students of undergraduate programme in Faculty of Civil Engineering, University Teknologi MARA.  This paper presents the mapping of the addressing Course Outcomes (CO) and Programme Outcomes (PO) to the scopes of assessment in a capstone project (CP) for IDP. The explicitness in the measurement of CO and PO in the course is demonstrated. The rubrics for the assessment of CP are also presented. Finally, evaluation of student performance in IDP particularly CP is discussed through a sample analysis of the CO and PO attainments.
