Abstract

Project planning is one of the key stages in project-based learning. This study aims to describe the characteristics of project planning undertaken by mechanical engineering teachers for the implementation of project-based learning. The samples of the research were mechanical engineering teachers of Mechanical Engineering Study Program from eleven vocational high schools in East Java. Data were collected through questionnaires and interviews, and analyzed by qualitative descriptive and percentage techniques. The results show (1) the complexity of projects planned by teachers varies greatly from simple to complex categories, depending on the variables that the teacher considers; (2) few teachers have involved small industries or other stakeholders and students in project planning; and (3) the involvement of industries or stakeholders in project planning is limited only as a product orderer either in the form of working drawings, descriptions of desired products, as well as exposure to real problems it faces. The conclusion of this study is that the characteristics of the project complexity planned by the teachers in implementing project-based learning models depend on whether or not there are industry involvement and the many variables of the products they are considering.
