Abstract

Technical and Vocational Education (TVE) is facing new challenges in an increasingly competitive global context. The continuing under representation of women in engineering fields at semi-skilled and high-skilled levels is receiving renewed attention. This paper explores women as part of special population in Malaysia who desire to be placed as equal to men in Malaysian context. Policy, leadership, and professional growth are discussed comprehensively to support Malaysian females’ involvement in engineering disciplines, one of Technical and Vocational Education (TVE) programs in Malaysia. This paper also explores issues and challenges facing by Malaysian women in order to be recognized by the sub-ordinates, peers, leaders and society within male-dominated professions and environment.
