Abstract
Recently the engineering institutes in India and abroad ignored the importance of mathematical modeling techniques in engineering teaching process and gave no places in their curriculum. In the present study the investigator applied random sampling on 15 post graduate engineering students, formulated four hypotheses connecting the innovative (attitude, relative advantage) and implementation variablion (utilisatation, satisfaction) and examined the relationships between the two variables. By using regression analysis, the result demonstrated that the two variables were significantly related. This implies the implementation of mathematical modeling in the engineering discipline was not successful. The investigator tried to identify the factors that would determine the successful implementation of mathematical modeling in the engineering discipline. It is critically important that mathematically trained and technologically competent research experts should be appointed and utilized as resources in the engineering research making bodies. Engineering research institutes with mathematical modeling facility should be collaborated with those that lack them to provide all research activities and opportunity to witness, learn from successful modeling related experiments.
