Abstract


Learning experience has always been influenced by not only the academic materials presented to students, but also others factors within the surroundings of the students. Assessment is conducted to monitor the students’ total learning experience (TLE) throughout their academic tenure-ship at the higher learning institution. UKM has taken the initiative to assess their students’ TLE annually. The findings then serve as their benchmark on the enhancement of the facilities provided and the progression of the students’ characteristics. UKM prepared a comprehensive TLE assessment on the infrastructure provided, the soft skill development and on personality traits. This paper discusses the findings on UKM’s engineering students’ TLE in relation to the infrastructure provided by UKM. The students perceived that they learned more from their industrial training provided with mean measured at -1.10 logit. Where else, the least contributing factor towards the students’ learning experience is the college facilities with mean measured at +0.50 logit.
