Abstract: Now-a-days student absenteeism in engineering education is a most important issue of a professional institution which affects the overall performance of institutions. This is most imperative alarm in creating outstanding engineers (real engineers) to the country. The quality of education is directly proportional to student absenteeism. A technique used for analysing the attributes that influence the subject on the total scores of the students was rough set theory (RST). In this paper, the author investigates, why students are absent in most of the engineering institutions and to work out the decision-making methods for grade options that manage student's absenteeism by using RST. In this study, the faculty qualifications, experience, communication skills, subject knowledge, number of guest lecturer/workshop/seminars conducted, college infrastructure, counselling, special coaching for weak students, subject understanding concepts and so forth, collected from students are considered.
