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.

Index Terms—MIAP learning, Metaverse, engineering competency
