Aims: The leadership attributes of engineers have been deemed crucial lately and have reached to a point where the link between leadership and engineering is debatable. Hence, this project purports to survey on the leadership
attributes of senior engineers within the construction industry in both Malaysia and Australia. The final outcome of this project would be to provide a comparative
result of engineering leadership of these two countries as well as to see if the results support the literature review done on the leadership attributes.

Methodology: A survey research methodology was used to gather data from senior engineers in the construction industry. The samples incorporated a total of 14
individual senior engineers from Malaysia and 21 engineers from Australia. An analysis was done by basic statistical methods and then analysed both quantitative
and qualitatively.

The outcome of this project would be obtained by quantitative survey and evaluation of the comparative study, which would depend on the aid of a
questionnaire created. Analysis of the surveys relating to the leadership attributes found in the literature review would be conducted and the final results observed
would then be extensively evaluated.
