Abstract

Industrial training program provides students with opportunities to apply the knowledge and skills acquired at polytechnic to the working world. The program is hoped to equip students with the necessary knowledge and skills to help them secure jobs after graduation. This study aims at investigating the importance of industrial training to students’ skills, knowledge, career adaptation and belief. A total of 426 students from all courses under the Commerce Department in Politeknik Ungku Omar, Ipoh, have participated in the survey. The data was analysed using descriptive analysis. The result shows that there was a high level of students’ knowledge (mean = 3.358), skills (mean = 3.399), career adaptation (mean = 3.351) and belief (mean = 3.338). These findings suggest that industrial training is important and should be undertaken by students from all departments in Politeknik Ungku Omar.
