Creativity becomes the most important agenda in engineering sector nowadays. One of the ways for an engineer to be creative is to identify what are the factors that cause a person not to be creative. Therefore, this research focuses on motivation factors that influence the creativity of engineering students at UTHM. Within this context, this research is an attempt to answer four research objective including four research questions and three research hypothesis. This study was structured within the quantitative methods where its samples consisted of three hundred and thirty (330) students from three Engineering Faculty in UTHM. They were selected based on a purposive sampling technique. The data was obtained by using a ready made instrument known as Work Preference Inventory (Amabile, Hil, Hennessey dan Tighe, 1995). SPSS version 12.0 was used to analyze the quantitative data and a significant level 0.05 was used to report the finding. The study, has reviewed an average level of motivation factor for enjoyment, challenge, compensation and outward orientation. While the intrinsic motivation of engineering students were higher than their extrinsic motivation. In the mean time, there was a significant difference in the aspect of motivation where their enjoyment was higher than their outward orientation. It also showed that there was no significant difference between male students and female students on motivation factors that influence their creativity at UTHM. However, the finding has revealed that there was a significant difference between SPM/STPM/Matriculation leavers and Sijil/Diploma leavers in motivation factors that influence their creativity.
