Abstract

This survey study was carried out to review the measurement items of learning environment model for engineering students. A total of 535 respondents were involved in this research. The variables presented in this research were the peer interaction, lecturer interaction and education facilities. Data were analyzed descriptively for reliability (Cronbach Alpha values) and  confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was used to obtain 3 factor solutions using AMOS  software. The results showed that the Cronbach Alpha was on the classification of high and very high which was higher than 0.70. Result of CFA confirmed 3 factors solution with data collected was fit with model. The study also proposed a model of learning environment for engineering students.
