Abstract: A student-based evaluation criterion is developed for the industrial training courses that are offered by the College of Engineering of the University of Bahrain. The criterion is used to determine the students| opinions on their training courses. Consequently, the strengths and weaknesses of the courses are identified and assessed using quantitative analysis. The results are statistically analysed to evaluate correlations and differences among the different factors of the criterion.

Keywords: industrial training; training approach; training benefits; training evaluation; student evaluation; Bahrain; engineering education.
