Abstract

Every student in the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) is required to undergo an industrial training. This survey was conducted after the students have completed their five months industrial training in 2009. The survey aims to get students' perceptions on the industrial training course and the benefits of self changes. This survey involved 285 respondents from four departments in the faculty. The criterion is based on the 5-score Likert scale. There are three parameters used to study the self changes i.e. the 'knowledge', 'skills' and 'attitude'. Overall, the students from the faculty achieved an average performance before the industrial training of 41% of the 'knowledge', 49% of the 'skills' and 65% for 'attitude'. After completing the industrial training, these three parameters were increased to 89% of the 'knowledge', 88% of the 'skills' and 95% for 'attitude'. On the benefits of industrial training, 91% of respondents agreed it was useful in providing added value to the career opportunities, while 88% agreed it was beneficial in improving their qualifications after graduation and 92% agreed it was useful in providing guidance for future careers.
