Abstract

Emotional intelligence quotient (EQ) plays an important role in influencing the development of students’ learning and academic. EQ has been identified as a medium for improving academic learning and academic grades success throughout 4-year engineering degree programs. EQ such as the emotion management, feeling, communication skill, and leadership are essential for a student in nurturing excellent performance as holistic. Therefore, this study aims to establish and monitoring the EQ achievement among the undergraduate students of the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. The EQ scores were measured using the Malaysian EQ Inventory (MEQI) Test. The study began by monitoring EQ achievements of a same cohort of students at four consecutive years: Year 1 (2010/2011), Year 2 (2011/2012) and Year 3 (2012/2013) and Year 4 (2013/2014). Results showed that, the overall EQ scores have recorded a slight increase from 2010 to 2014. Self-Awareness, Empathy, Social Skill and Maturity are the domains that experience increment, while the other domains such as; Self-Regulation, Self-Motivation and Spirituality show slight decrease.
