Abstract

Questionnaire of prospective university graduates have been identified as one of the effective methods for the strength and weakness assessment of the program curriculum. It is based on student feedbacks regarding on their performance and satisfaction in Department of Chemical & Process Engineering (JKKP) in order to determine the effectiveness of the Chemical and Biochemical Engineering Program at Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment, UKM. The questionaire include a general information of future graduates, information on program outcomes over 4 years and acquiring skills, career preparation and student-lecturer relationship. The results of the evaluation process and recommendations for improving the curriculum were also studied. The study was conducted over two sessions (semester 2009/2010 and 2010/2011) for two batches of students. Overall, mostly all the prospective graduates are satisfied with the current system of teaching and learning in JKKP as well as also willing to involve into the working environment. Achievement of the 12 program outcomes indicates a satisfactory performance with an average of more than 70% and 57% for respective Chemical and Biochemical Engineering Program. Based on this study, approximately more than 27% graduate in Chemical Engineering believes that the theoritical-practical and technical oriented projects should be adopted, while 19% of Biochemical Engineering graduates thinks that the project design should be separated and should be more focused to the field of biochemical engineering area.
