Abstract

Engineering programs are the most popular types for students who seek to become technicians or engineers. Furthermore, the Malaysian government is focused on technical and vocational education and training (TVET). This study investigates the patterns of enrollment for mechanical engineering students at Politeknik Tuanku Sultanah Bahiyah. Data extracted from the Student Affairs Department at Politeknik Tuanku Sultanah Bahiyah for the years 2015 through 2017. The study’s findings show that enrollment for mechanical engineering programs decreased for both the June and December sessions (but particularly for the December session) from 2015 through 2017. One reason for this is that enrollment among students seeking a mechatronic diploma decreased by 50% in 2017.
