Assessment of Creativity in Electrical Engineering

AbstractFor a nation to achieve the status of a developed and high income country, it has to grasp innovation. Graduates therefore, have to understand and possess all the abilities directly associated with innovation such as the ability to generate, develop and implement new and meaningful ideas. Creative approaches in problem solving lead to innovation in technology. A study has been done to assess the creativity level of the Electrical and Electronics Engineering undergraduates from the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment. The Torrance Test of Creative Thinking (TTCT) has been administered to students who represented Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) in a national competition for robotic design. The test provides assessment of five main creativity dimensions as well as scores for evidence of thirteen creative strengths. As a conclusion, the study has identified the creativity level of the students. 67% of the students have Average Standard Score more than 100. The creative potential is then indicated through an index value, which serves as an overall indicator of creative potential. The results from this study can be used by the faculty to plan the best and more effective method of delivery for electrical engineering curriculum to fulfill the aspiration of innovation-led nation.
