Abstract

This paper reports an alumni survey conducted in 2010 on postgraduate alumni of the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. The survey was aimed at acquiring alumni responses with regards to their perception and satisfaction on three aspects of education, namely; Part A - achievement of Programme Educational Objectives (PEO) and Programme Outcomes (PO); Part B - assessment of curriculum and delivery process; Part C - perception on available facilities and resources. A total of 36 responses are obtained, out of which 58% are local graduates. The survey results of Part A shows that more than 60% of the respondents give a rating of above 4 ('quite a lot' to 'very much') to the achievements related to acquisition of knowledge and skills including lifelong learning, decision making, logical thinking, critical analysis, creativity, communication, problem solving and teamwork. For Part B on assessment of curriculum and delivery process, more that 50% of the respondents 'agree' to 'strongly agree' with most of the statements related to curriculum and lecturers. For Part C on facilities and resources, more that 60% of respondents give a rating of 'good' to 'very good' to the available facilities. Results from the survey will be used to enhance the academic programmes as part of the continual quality improvement initiatives for graduate studies at the faculty.
