Abstract: The research study examined the effectiveness of the module designed intervention in supporting the problem-solving skills among students in Engineering Technology from Technical Vocational Education and Training Institution. A combination of Theory Inventive Problem Solving and Experiential Learning Theory were used in this module designed. The study had 68 students and formed two groups: control and experimental. Students from the experimental group were taught with a module designed during their final year project 1 course meanwhile control group learned the techniques in a natural way. The research instrument consists of a scheme of work, syllabus, lesson plan, student exercise sheet, module power point, implementation checklist and also rubrics assessment. The questionnaires were used as a data collection for both pre-post-test and results were analyzed using the SPSS program package. Findings indicate significantly improved students’ problem-solving skills as compared with the control group and highest score was for quadrant 4. The increase in the mean gain for quadrant 4 was the difference of 6.91-5.91=1.00 that showing positive changes in their problem-solving skills.
