Abstract

Final Year Project (FYP) is compulsory in the Faculty of Engineering at the Universiti Malaysia Sabah. The importance of final year project (FYP) in strengthening competences of engineering students is widely known. However, little is available about students' expectations and concerns while carrying out their projects. In this article, a survey was conducted at the Universiti Malaysia Sabah, Faculty of Engineering under civil engineering programme. The purpose is to investigate the students' expectations and concerns about their FYP. This study is a replication of a case study carried out in the UK with few alterations. The expected and the preferred type of supervision, the frequency of the expected face to face Supervision were carefully analyzed and discussed. This investigation is very useful in addressing students concerns for preparing mentally the next batches for better performance with least frustrations while improving the students' performance.
