Abstract

In this chapter, the author presents the problems faced by educators and students in teaching and learning engineering courses. In general, teaching of engineering courses are relatively challenging due to the nature of the courses that are perceived as “difficult courses” by a number of students. This course is built upon the strong fundamental knowledge in physics and mathematics. This course requires the students to have a strong abstract thinking, reasoning, and problem-solving skills. Due to this problem, a further research study (a continuation from previous study) was embarked at the National Energy University, which is also known as Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN), Malaysia. Selected lecturers and students were randomly selected and interviewed to find the reasons for this problem.
