Presence of international students in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia has called for implementation of English as the medium of instruction. The institution’s Chemical Engineering Department in particular is non exceptional and acquiesces with the university’s langua ge policy requirement. Although this deed could certainly be acknowledged as a healthy nurturing of both the intern ational and local chemical engineering students, complications rooting from this issue should be examined, if any. This research focuses on the implications of the issue on local students who has to deal with this current development, maybe unfavourably. This paper reports finding from a recent survey, containing questions asse ssing different pertinent issues, as well as seeking students’ constructive opinions, disseminated in the classes with international students. Evaluation was carried out accordingly and all analysis were crafted through appropriate graphical and statistical presentation and hopefully have revealed the true feelings and views of these students.
