Abstract: This study investigates the factors motivating learning among engineering students. A questionnaire based research framework that addresses the learning motivating factors and their links to students' motivation was employed. Statistical analyses are applied to investigate the factors that motivate engineering students to learn. The findings provide insight into the development of teaching inventories for engineering students. To enable students to learn effectively, a supportive setting with enabling factors and a cooperative learning environment is appreciated Based on the study of the motivating factors and their impact on the learning motivation of engineering students, suggestions are made as to what can be developed to promote students' motivation.
