dc.description.abstract Engineers are fast-track individuals who have special knowledge and expertise. They have great expectations and ambitions for their career (Malan, 2004). Engineers are also known to be energetic in climbing their career ladder and strive for their psychological success. However, the conflict between having their own goals and expectation with advancement opportunities, work autonomy and work demand structured by the organization have influenced the well-being of the engineers. As a result, Malaysian statistics of Human Resource Department indicated that the performance of engineers has shown a drop . This scenario would become worse if less attention is given to research on the engineer’s individual well-being. Thus, it is a timely to conduct study in accessing the level of individual well-being among Malaysian engineers, with career goal development as the predictor. A total of 387 registered professional engineers participated in this study. The hypotheses were investigated through a correlation and path analysis using PLS.

The results further had shown a positive influence of career goal development on individual well-being.
