Abstract: With advancement in technology, education has taken a new dimension with the introduction of e-learning. Many institutions of higher learning in Malaysia have ventured into e-learning. Although e-learning offers attractive benefits, its effectiveness is important to ensure the quality of learning, notably among engineering students. Numerous foreign and local researchers have indicated that the effectiveness of e-learning correlates mostly with students’ behaviour. Thus, this study aims to probe further on effectiveness of e-learning by conducting an observational survey to investigate engineering students’ readiness in accepting e-learning at a local university. Numerous factors were investigated, namely, student demographics, ICT infrastructure availability and accessibility, information technology literacy, e-learning experiences, e-learning acceptance, course pedagogy, e-learning functions and training necessities. Information technology literacy was found to be the only factor that affects students’ acceptance on e-learning.
