Abstract


Professional competence of an engineer is never based on his or her technical skills in this modern age of industrialization but it is combination of both technical and non technical skills. This study aimed to investigate barriers of engineers that hindered effective oral presentation performance in engineering workplace of Pakistan. Thirty engineers from two engineering organizations participated in this study. Purposive sampling method was used to gather information from respondents regarding barriers. Data were computer analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS 15.0). Information was coded according to survey questions and frequency information was determined. The results of the study revealed that barriers for instance poor oral communication skill, low self confidence, stress and nervousness and low motivation hindered effective oral presentation performance of engineers. Thus, results indicate that engineers of Pakistan face barriers during their job performance at workplace. The results of this study are consistent with literature review findings on barriers that hinder effective oral presentation performance of engineers at workplace.
