Abstract

Professional engineers (PEs) at the Institutions of Higher Learning (IHLs) have undoubtedly contributed to the quality of teaching & research and closed the gaps between university graduates' qualities and the expectations of the industry. As being PEs brings about great differences in university environment, this article seeks the reasons for lecturers not to submit and become one. Survey results from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) which is a research university (RU) is compared against that of non-RUs. From the results of 'exposure' and 'motivations' factors, engineering lecturers at UKM are significantly better off than their colleagues at other IHLs because they receive appropriate guidance from their more senior colleagues who have PE qualifications. This could be due to the fact that UKM is in the elite group with RU status, where there are more lecturers who have the PE qualifications and the mechanism and attitudes towards helping junior lecturers are well established. In terms of application requirements, UKM staff is worse off because they are not well prepared with documentations in the category 'application requirements'. Interestingly, more than 50% of lecturers from both groups agreed that lacking incentives from the management as the main reason delaying their applications.
