Abstract

This research is a developmental study of Engineering Laboratory Management indicators. It is formed to assess the level of quality management of the polytechnic level laboratory. The purpose of indicators is to help provide input into the management process of an engineering laboratory. Effectiveness of teaching and learning at technical institution, mostly depending on the teaching and learning strategies by the lecturer during lecture and practical work in the laboratory. The indicators were developed through four round of the Delphi study. Four clusters of indicators have been identified namely documentation management, safety, environment and equipment. Good management of the laboratory is to ensure that facilities and hardware in good condition, safe and reliable, instruments must be accurate, consistent and can be detected, as well as teaching and learning activities carried out with guaranteed quality and accountability. The results should provide input to the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) where it sets out the requirements of Engineering Studies program at the Institute of Higher Education. It is suggested that the emphasis of the quality should also include laboratory management as well as training and project development with industry to get recognition.
