Abstract [en]

This paper examines the main factors that affect the stress level of engineering students. Our questionnaire is based on the scale, Inventory of college students' recent life experiences (ICSRLE). Randomly collected data from 200 students are analysed with MINITAB14. The Six sigma techniques of Pareto Analysis, SIPOC Analysis, Cause and Effect matrix and Relationship charts are used to identify the most significant factors. It is found that the teachers' communication and marking skills are the most critical factors. The findings of this research underscore the importance of having a transparent marking system to the course's both inside and outside the educational institutions and to guide teachers in improving their communication and marking skills to reduce stress in students.
