Abstract—This research aimed to develop an M-MIAP
learning model via Metaverse to develop the engineering
competencies of pre-engineering students, and to evaluate the
appropriateness of the model. This research is divided into two
phases. In the first phase, literature studies of various learning
models were conducted to construct the matrix of Metaverse
elements and engineering competency for the M-MIAP model.
The second phase was the evaluation of the appropriateness of
the developed M-MIAP model by various expert stakeholders in
the fields of information technology, communication technology,
Metaverse, and pre-engineering. It was found that the M-MIAP
model consists of input, M-MIAP learning process, engineering
competency, and feedback. This research uses Metaverse in the
learning process to provide students with a new virtual
dimension experience. This collaborative learning process also
results in a deeper comprehension of the subject matter and
increases educational opportunities for students. The assessment
result was rated as “very good”, suggesting the suitability of the
overall learning model. This indicates that the M-MIAP model
can be utilized to cultivate engineering competencies in
pre-engineering students, and to prepare for the impending
transition to the digital era. It also supports the educational
system in achieving the same level of enduring quality.
