The purpose of this research paper is to evaluate the attitude of UMP undrgraduates towards Techno Leadership by using Questionnaire Survey Approach, Face to Face Interview, and endorsed by Biofeedback Analysis. The integrated findings will support the development of a strategic tool to encourage UMP undergraduates towards entrepreneurship. The combined total quantities of undergraduates who have undergone the various tests were 238 from various faculties with varied CGPA achievements. The results of the research reflected a high level of motivation among the undergraduates towards self employment. However, there was a low indication of techno leadership where their knowledge of entrepreneurial tools are high but this was restricted by their inability to utilize the available tools. As a treatment to assist this constraint, a strategic tool is being developed to enhance techno leadership among UMP undergraduates to cater the inadequacies of relevant experiential business learning.

1. Introduction
The Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia through Higher Education Leadership Academy (AKEPT) is acutely seeking studies or writings to implement emerging practices of entrepreneurship in higher education so as to transform graduates to be able to face current entrepreneurial development and future economic challenges.
Pursuant to this search of excellence, my research was done in such direction at Universiti Malaysia Pahang to contribute towards techno leadership development among engineering undergraduates. Entrepreneurship education should be able to play the role of significant contribution to improve quality of graduate start ups and intellectual attitudes in entrepreneurship in the possible short term. Not many empirical studies have examined the entrepreneurial talent and potential of university students and thereafter develop and facilitate this immediate source of future entrepreneurs.
The central aim of this paper is among others is to make observations and made necessary recommendations with respect to the following:
1. To measure UMP’s student’s attitude towards technopreneurship.
2. To evaluate level of Techno Leadership among UMP students.
3. To facilitate strategic tool to enhance UMP students in Techno Leadership.
We conducted an initial survey involving 238 students comprising of 136 male and 102 female from all faculties. This was followed by a face to face interview and finally we had a biofeedback analysis done on volunteer basis. From this paper, we develop ‘A graduate Entrepreneur Leadership Simulator Program’ as a simple strategic tool to enhance experiential business learning among engineering undergraduates. The impact of entrepreneurship education has been recognized as one of the crucial factors that help undergraduates to understand and foster an entrepreneurial attitude (Gorman et al., 1997; Kourilsky and Walstad, 1998).
According to Sankaran (2004), every country, state and region has been struggling to promote entrepreneurship. All have access to capital markets, sound legal systems, and exceptional telecommunications infrastructure. But only some areas are flourishing. Why? The answer may be found in government’s fondness for simple solutions, the most common of which is to provide seed capital. For seed capital to create something extraordinary, it must be accompanied by novel ideas, which originate from creative and unconventional individuals. In a modern economy, top tier universities, faculties, research laboratories and incubators are places of steady flow of technical ideas and breeding ground of entrepreneurs.
Undergraduates as would be entrepreneurs play important role as he drives the forces of creative disorder by bringing innovation to market:
“… the function of entrepreneurs is to reform or revolutionize the pattern of production by exploiting an invention or more generally, an untried technological possibility for producing a new commodity or producing an old one in a new way, by opening up a new source of supply of materials or a new outlet for products by reorganizing an industry and so on… This kind of activity is primarily responsible for the recurrent ‘prosperities’ that revolutionize the economic organism and the recurrent ‘recessions’ that are due to the disequilibrating impact of new products or methods.” (Schumpeter, 1976, p. 132)

2. Literature Review
According to Timmons (1994), the great discovery of the extraordinary power of the entrepreneurial mind is a silent revolution in the US. Based on his study, one third of Harvard Business School (HBS) graduates ended up working for themselves and 90% of HBS students have the dream of self-employment. Survey results in the 1990’s have confirmed this trend. In a study of business school senior undergraduates, 55% preferred operating their own business given the complete freedom of choice, but only 5% of the respondents indicated they would probably choose to operate their own business after considering their actual situation and constraints (Brenner et al., 1991).
Ghazali et al., (1995) have conducted a survey on 2486 graduates in Singapore (with a response rate of 34.1%) who graduated after 1-8 years, and around 8.6% of them to be self employed. Thus the desire to start a business far outweighed the actual growth of self employment in a number of industrialized countries. Although a wide gap exists between student aspiration and actual self-employment, there is an increasing trend in moving towards an attitude of entrepreneurship among the students.
The next section presents our findings from the survey, face to face interviews and biofeedback analysis. Specifically, our respondents are 238 undergraduate students from the various engineering faculties of varied CGPA achievements as follows:-
Number of Students
Faculty of Chemical & Natural Resources Engineering 78
Faculty of Electrical & Electrics Engineering 15
Faculty of Mechanical Engineering 95
Faculty of Civil & Environmental Engineering 17
Faculty of Computer Systems & Software Engineering 33

Next methodology is explained and the findings are concluded with recommendations and action plans to attract policy implications with respect to university educators, government policy makers, administrators, researchers, legislators and bankers to institute changes from conventional practices. The concluding remarks may initiate some directions for further research.
3. Methodology
The survey was conducted on 238 students as well as face to face interviews with researchers in the area of entrepreneurship. The motivation related questions were to gauge the interest to be self-employed or to be an employee. The socio economic background measures include the type of family income status, inclination towards starting a business, father’s occupation and mother’s occupation. Student’s attitude towards risk is measured by their responses to their fear of possible failures. Entrepreneurial knowledge is measured on student’s self perceived knowledge in starting a business and knowledge in managing business.

4. Results on Background Factors and entrepreneurial interest.
From the demographic analysis , it is observed that the father’s occupation of undergraduates is majority employee/salaried worker (41.6%). Generally, the occupation of mothers are housewives (79%). The parental occupational background may have an impact on the outcome of this survey as Malaysian parents normally desire their children to be salaried worker rather than an entrepreneur. However, we noted that the financial status of the respondent’s family is not related to his or her personal business interest. The source of this interest is based more on his or her own noble idea and strong personality drive rather than family interference. From the survey data, it is found that the respondents (39.5%) have low risk taking ability. They are too cautious to take business calculated risks. This is more so when there is an availability of lucrative prospects in the corporate and public sectors in Malaysia. The undergraduates feel that there is a risk for them to start new business and forgo opportunities of ‘comfort zones’ in corporate and public sector as the economic system in Malaysia still strongly emphasizes on paper qualification. On the other hand, UMP undergraduates (48.3%) are aware that noble business ideas, strong networking and supportive financial aid are very important to help them start a new business. Only about 27.9% of the undergraduates are willing to be self employed in next 5 years on their own. This finding is low if compared to students in Singapore or US. The entrepreneurial interest of UMP undergraduates is low as they are afraid of two high eventual risks that is firstly, the possibility of going bankrupt (98.7%) and secondly, the possibility of suffering a personal failure (90.7%). Nevertheless, the undergraduates (more than 95%) generally believe that there are 3 important factors that can facilitate their new business success namely, the political climate, the overall economy and external factors. A word of caution needs to be mentioned here as the risk measure employed here may be too regimented on a maximum of five Likert-scale scores.

5. Conclusions
In this paper, UMP undergraduate’s attitude towards entrepreneurship is examined with limitations. The findings have borderless rooms for further research to strengthen entrepreneur culture and entrepreneurial attitude among undergraduates. Further investigations are required to link entrepreneurial interest and knowledge of undergraduates to start a new business are greatly desired. Many UMP undergraduates are interested to start a new business are in need of adequate total preparation, support from university and commitment from the Government. Their experiential business knowledge and experiences are inadequate. The constant fear of business failure is embedded in them and this ‘psychology fear’ need to be addressed by government policy makers, university educators, administrators, legislators and the conservative bankers. The emerging existence of such potential and talented non business undergraduates in engineering faculty demands a tailor made techno leadership course to produce entrepreneurs. As UMP is an engineering based university, strong direct efforts and policies need to be transformed and implemented in all the seven faculties to facilitate technopreneurship.
We have summarise the findings as follows:
1. UMP undergraduates have shown high motivation towards technoprenership as suggested in survey based on figure of 131 out of 238 students are willing to be self employed. This finding is further endorsed by the interview exercise of 42.58% reported as good and 41.2% as fair.
2. UMP undergraduates are not risk takers as observed and recorded from the interviews sessions.
3. UMP undergraduates are aware of the technopreneurship tools available but they do not know how to utilize them. This is obvious as shown in the interview results where they know correctly the technopreneurship tools (capital, ICT, networking, equipment and logistics) but they do not have the knowledge to start a new business.
4. UMP undergraduates do not show techno leadership quality as evidenced in the interviews conducted. However, personality profile tests conducted on UMP undergraduates revealed that they have personality score of above 81 (6 undergraduates) and between 71-80 comprised of 8 undergraduates.
5. UMP undergraduates have shown positive personality traits on individual strength such as integrity, skillful, focus, creative, hardworking, trustworthy, confidence. Personality Profiling Tests had revealed that UMP undergraduates have low level of persistency and discipline. However, they display openness to new ideas, cooperation and leadership.
6. From the face to face interviews conducted, we observed that UMP undergraduates requested experiential learning towards technopreneur leadership.

1. Establish Koperasi Siswa UMP via existing undergraduate’s mall with immediate effect.
2. Develop a “Graduate Entrepreneur Leadership Simulator Program” to enhance Techno Leadership.
3. Core Engineering Faculty of UMP to offer Technopreneur Master Program with 60% orientation towards technopreneurship focusing on experiential business learning.
4. Create and develop experiential business learning programs and trainings at faculty level.
5. Undergraduates need to undergo the strengthening of EQ Training

We do not strive for completeness. The above agenda is an attempt to enhance entrepreneurial attitude among UMP undergraduates. Technopreneurship is the work of man but to produce Techno leaders is by no means easy. By working on this agenda, more researches and relevant logistic support can help policy makers, university educators, legislators, bankers and administrators to help further improvement on the entrepreneurial achievements of undergraduates.

Saat kepulangan saya dari Acheh ke Kuala Lumpur pada 22 Jun 2009, mencuit hati kecil untuk berkongsi maklum balas tragedi tsunami Negara tersebut. Ternyata banyak kenangan manis dan ikhtibar yang dibawa pulang ke Malaysia susulan penyertaan Program “Sinar Bersama Mu Acheh” ia itu Lawatan Khidmat Masyarakat Antarabangsa anjuran bersama UTM dengan UMP selama 7 hari bermula 15 Jun hingga 22 Jun 2009. Acheh sebagai sebuah Negara pentadbiran Islam mempunyai keindahan alam semula jadi untuk destinasi pelancongan dan dunia mengenali Acheh lebih dekat selepas bencana tsunami.
Mengikut sejarah, pedagang serta mubaligh Arab dan India mengguna lokasi Acheh sebagai persinggahan utama lebih 500 tahun dahulu dalam misi dan strateji mengembangkan syiar Islam di rantau Asia Tenggara.
Hari bersejarah hitam bagi rakyat Acheh ialah pada pagi 26 Disember 2004 apabila tsunami melanggar Acheh. Pukulan ganas tsunami telah membikin Bandar Acheh hancur dan remuk di gulung gelombang dan ombak raksasa dengan kelajuan 500 kiliometer sejam dan ketinggian 30 meter. Asakan pertama dan kedua telah mengorbankan 350,000 penduduk Acheh serta berpuluh ribu lagi warga Acheh yang tidak boleh di kesan.
Pada hari pertama trajedi tersebut, Bandar Acheh menjadi padang terkukur. Acheh menjadi rata, musnah dan hancur lebur. Petugas mangsa dari pelbagai negara seperti Malaysia, Jepun, Perancis, UK, USA dll segera membantu Acheh. Mayat mayat bergelimpangan di tepi pantai, di Bandar, di atas jalan di sekitar Bandar Acheh menjadi repuk, remuk bersama sampah sarap dan lumpur hitam. Ini adalah satu pemandangan yang amat menakutkan dan memilukan. Kini rakyat Acheh bekerja keras untuk membangun kembali Negara Acheh yang amat tertekan selepas trajedi tersebut.
Antara kesan jelas tsunami ialah muncul kehadiran anak anak yatim piatu di Acheh berjumlah melebihi 4000 orang. Untuk program “ Sinar Bersama Mu Acheh “, penulis telah terlibat secara langsung dengan 20 penghuni Rumah Anak Yatim Melaka Tsunami Acheh (RAMYTA) DI Desa Pinie dekat Bandar Acheh dan juga bersama 50 pelajar Pondok Ar Raudhah di Lhokeseumawe. Untuk pergi ke Pondok Ar-Raudhah mengambil masa 6 jam dengan menaiki bas dari lapangan terbang Acheh. Perjalanan yang meletihkan badan bagi penumpang bas.
Penulis sebagai tenaga pengajar Latihan Dalam Kelas untuk “ Basic in English “ bersama sokongan kreatif siswa siswi UMP telah mengadunkan penggunaan alat komputer dan bahan bahan visual yang menarik bersesuaian dengan peringkat asas anak anak yatim berumur dari 7 tahun sehingga 18 tahun. Ini ternyata amat berkesan dan menarik sekali bagi mereka mengikutinya. Sesi pembelajaran bahasa asing ini menjadi begitu manarik, meriah dan mudah sekali. Klip klip video berbentuk animasi yang sesuai dengan tahap umur pelajar memikat anak anak yatim untuk kekal fokus dalam kelas. Pembelajaran reka bentuk stail ini tidak membosankan pelajar pelajar kepada pengenalan bahasa Inggeris. Penulis amat gembira walaupun mereka mungkin lemah dari sudut penulisan dan pertuturan tetapi tetapi telah berusaha dan menunjukkan kesungguhan mempelajari Bahasa Asing. Mereka bersemangat untuk menjadi orang maju dan berjaya. Sebagai contoh, terdapat seorang anak yatim bercita cita menjadi Presiden Indonesia. Cita cita ini telah di beri sokongan walaupun penulis merasa kejutan sepertimana Negara Acheh di pukul oleh tsunami tanpa diduga.
Memori kisah bagaimana seorang anak yatim piatu RAMYTA iaitu Muhammad Nasfi Khusaini berumur 7 tahun selamat dari bencana tsunami tidak bisa menyembunyikan perasaan sedih pilu. Beliau menjadi piatu pada usia yang paling muda sekali.
Pada waktu gelombang pertama tsunami berlaku, di sebuah rumah di Lemtengah, Ulee Lheue yang terletak di utara Bandar Acheh, seorang ibu telah mempertaruhkan nasib anaknya Nasfi dengan memasukkan si comel ini kedalam peti ais dan seterusnya hanya mengharapkan pertolongan Allah sahaja di saat maut menghampiri. Gelombang kedua tsunami datang dengan lebih ganas, garang dan laju dengan kelajuan 400 kilometer sejam dan ketinggian 15 meter telah membawa maut kepada kedua ibu bapa Nasfi. Tetapi, gelombang besar dan ganas itu telah membawa peti ais berisi Nasfi bersama sampah sarap, batang batang kayu, tong, zinc, kereta dan lain lain yang berselerakan. Kerana takdir, peti ais itu turut ikut arus gelombang dengan tenggelam timbul dan akhirnya terdampar dikaki sebuah bukit sejauh 10 kilometer dari perkampungan Ulee Lheue. Keganasan tsunami ternyata tidak mampu mengatasi kehendak Allah yang mempastikan anak kecil berusia 3 tahun tetap selamat, hidup dan bernafas meskipun dia di lambung keras dalam tsunami ganas selama 8 jam.
Kehebatan keganasan tsunami juga telah menghanyutkan sebuah kapal kargo dengan keberatan 100,000 ton dan panjang setengah padang bola sepak dari pelabuhan Ulee Lheue sejauh 7 kilometer ke perkampungan Desa Pungeh, dekat Bandar Acheh. Kini kapal ini dijadikan museum sebagai kenangan.
Keesukan pagi, pasukan petugas telah tejumpa sebuah peti ais terdampar di kaki bukit. Mereka membukanya dan amat terperanjat melihat seorang anak kecil berada dalamnya yang masih bernyawa setelah 24 jam terkurung. Tubuh kecilnya menjadi lunglai dan lemah setelah dipukul tsunami. Nasfi, terpaksa diberi rawatan rapi selama 6 bulan di Medan, Sumatra. Walauapapun, Nasfi merupakan anak paling kecil dalam kumpulan 20 pelajar RAMYTA. Cerita seperti ini sudah pasti mencuit hati kecil insan yang prihatin.
Penulis juga berkesempatan melawat 2 masjid di Acheh yang mantap gagah perkasa tidak musnah dalam arus gelombang tsunami ganas ia itu Masjid Baiturrahman di Bandar Acheh dan Masjid Baiturrahim di Ulee Lheue. Sejarah seperti ini menunjukkan kekuasaan Allah dan ada segelintir para saintis berusaha mempertikaikan. Hakikat nya, sukar untuk mencerita bagaimana banyak masjid masjid di Acheh tidak hancur.
Secara kesimpulannya, kita boleh lihat hikmah dan nikmat yang memihak kepada Acheh sebagai sebuah Negara Islam.
Pertama, Perjanjian Helsinki (15 Ogos 2005) yang ditandatangani di Finland telah memberi kuasa otonomi khusus kepada Acheh dengan antara lain pengagihan 70:30 hasil pendapatan minyak dan gas Acheh memihak kepada Acheh.
Kedua, Rakyat Acheh bekerja lebih kuat dan keras untuk memajukan negara menggunakan sumber terhad pada tahap yang paling maksima
Ketiga, Acheh akan menjadi Negara Islam yang paling mantap dan unggul di Asia dengan mengambilkira populasi yang homogen serta pegangan Islam yang kuat. Dari segi politik, sesiapa boleh naik, tetapi korupsi mesti turun.
Keempat, Governor Acheh adalah bekas pejuang Gerakan Acheh Merdeka (GAM) dan ini memberi laluan untuk anjakan paradigma kemajuan Acheh. Masyarakat perdagangan dan perindustrian masih di kuasai oleh rakyat Acheh.
Kelima, Peperangan sengit di antara GAM dengan Pemerintah Jakarta selama 30 tahun terhenti selepas tsunami dan ini mengizinkan keamanan dan keselamatan rakyat, Negara dan pelancong.

Petikan daripada blog : Gendangdipalu
ROSELAN MOHD TAHAR bawa 40 siswa dari UTM dan UMP untuk Lawatan Khidmat Masyarakat selama 10 hari di Aceh.

Bahasa Inggeris mungkin menjadi bahasa agak asing serta susah untuk di kuasai oleh sebahagian besar dari anak-anak desa di Indonesia. Namun kumpulan mahasiswa dari Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), kampus Skudai, Johor bersama rakan-rakan mereka dari Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP), tidak kurang kagum melihat kesungguhan anak-anak Aceh mempelajari bahasa tersebut.
Anak-anak tsunami Aceh tetap bertahan mengikuti kelas pengenalan bahasa Inggeris kendalian kumpulan 40 mahasiswa dari kedua-dua universiti itu walaupun ia memakan masa agak panjang, lebih dua jam.
Bahasa Inggeris bagi anak-anak Aceh, memang bahasa amat asing. Sukar dikuasi. Saya melihat bagaimana seorang guru tempatan Aceh, terkial-kial memimpin kelas bahasa ini untuk kumpulan 7 murid-muridnya, cuma dengan menggunakan buku dan papan hitam sahaja.Murid cepat bosan belajar suatu bahasa asing yang sukar difahami, seperi bahasa Inggeris sendiri. Akibatnya ramai yang ponteng kelas tambahan. Dan ibu gurupun tak kurang rasa tertekan pula.
Aceh bekerja keras untuk bangkit kembali membangunkan rakyatnya yang amat tertekan selepas bumi mereka diganyang tsunami 26 Disember 2004 dulu. Aceh menangis melihat lebih 200,000 rakyatnya berselerakan mati digulung gelombang raksaksa 'tsunami' dalam tregedi paling mengerikan itu. Berpuluh-puluh ribu orang lagi hilang bersama sampah sarap dan lumpur lumat dihanyutkan gelombang maut itu.
Bahasa Inggeris kini menjadi salah satu matapelajaran wajib diajarkan di sekolah-sekolah seluruh Aceh, sejak dari kelas rendah pertama lagi hingga paling atas.Tapi, dengan menggunakan teknik dan peralatan mengajar yang betul dan sesuai, sessi pembelajaran bahasa dagang ini tiba-tiba menjadi begitu menarik. Mudah sekali.
Kumpulan mahasiswa UTM dan UMP itu bermalam dan tinggal bersama sekumpulan 20 penghuni Rumah Anak Yatim Melaka-Tsunami Aceh (RAYMTA), di Desa Punie dekat Bandar Aceh minggu ini untuk selama tiga hari.
Mereka berada di Aceh selama sepuluh hari di bawah program 'Lawatan Khidmat Masyarakat'.Penggunaan alat dan bahan-bahan visual yang menarik, sesuai untuk peringkat asas dan pengenalan bahasa Inggeris, tenyata amat berkesan dan menarik minat anak-anak yatim Aceh untuk mengikutinya.
Klip-klip video berbentuk animasi yang sesuai dengan tahap umur pelajar, demikian memikat anak-anak untuk kekal bertumpu kepada kelas.Dari sessi pembelajaran yang membosankan, ia tiba-tiba menjadi sebuah kelas paling menarik. Meriah.
Semuanya bergantung kepada kemampuan guru yang memimpin kelas sera dengan alat mengajar yang tepat.
Pensyarah dari Pusat Permodenan Bahasa dan Sains Kemanusiaan UMP, Roselan Mohamed Tahar, turut turun padang dan bersama menghidupkan kelas pengenalan bahasa Inggeris dalam sessi tengahari bersama anak-anak yatim RAYMTA.
"Mereka mungkin lemah dari sudut penguasaan dan penulisan,' kata Roselan serta menambah: "Tapi kami gembira melihat kesungguhan mereka untuk mempelajari satu bahasa lain. Mereka bersamangat untuk menjadi orang yang maju dan berjaya."
