Abstract

This paper discusses the assessment on performance criteria obtained by the trainees during industrial training. A total of 303 trainees from four departments under Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, have successfully carried out the program with placements in various organisations. The training has been carried out for the duration of 20 weeks, from the 12th April to the 28th August 2009. In this study, 96% employers have given their valuable feedbacks on the performance of 290 trainees. From the employers' perception, trainees have obtained high performance rating in many criteria including ability to carry out instructions (96%), social and multi-racial awareness (95%) and professionalism and work ethics (94%). However, the employers are mostly dissatisfied with trainees' leadership ability which recorded the lowest score with percentage of 67%.
