Mohd. Sam, A.R. and Abu Bakar, S and Kassim, K.A. (2004) Inculcating generic skill for civil engineering students through final year project. In: Conference On Engineering Education (CEE 2004), 14-15 December 2004, Kuala Lumpur.



Final Year Project is a compulsory subject to be taken by the final year students in the Faculty of Civil Engineering as part of the requirement to obtain their first degree. This subject provides the opportunity for the students to exercise and develop their generic skill that are essential and needed for leading roles in civil engineering works. Each student will be given a specific topic and supervised by lecturer. At the end of the project the students are required to write a full report comprising of all the work that have been done. They are also required to present their findings orally in English in a Final Year Project Seminar. The students are expected to show that they are able to work independently, solve problems, adapt to various situations, and have self-confidence. The project enables students to enhance their generic skills through various means such as communicating with expert from industries, discussion with lecturer/supervisor and colleagues, self-learning, writing report, and oral presentation. Generally, after the completion of the project most of the students are able to acquire, show, and practice the relevant quality in generic skill required for engineers to be successful in their profession.
