Abstract

In the era of globalization, students face considerable challenges in preparing for a career. These challenges arise after studying at the university level. Most students do not understand and do not have a career orientation. Therefore, early career planning is needed for each individual to help choose career goals and the path to the desired goals. One of the students who need planning is a student majoring in mechanical engineering education. This study aims to determine the readiness of Mechanical Engineering Education students in preparing for a career. This study uses a quantitative approach. The instrument used in this study was a questionnaire that was prepared based on the readiness indicators from the experts. Results Based on the survey, it can be seen that the level of student career readiness is low. Therefore, the next recommendation is to intervene to improve the career readiness of mechanical engineering education students.
