Abstract

Teaching role of an engineering professor has changed from a knowledge imparter to a leadership role. The students emulate the role of a professor. Given individual consideration to engineering college student the professor is considered to influence their performance. It is not enough to be a leader but they have to be a transformational leader. This study focuses on engineering college student’s perception about professor’s transformational leadership role. Latent variable structural equation modelling was used to test a hypothesis. The results reveal engineering students perceive professor as transformational leader in the professor who gave personalized consideration rather than those maintained contractual relationship.
