Abstract:The statistical tests results revealed (a) the existence of a significant relationship between students' cognitive self-appraisal and self-management, (b) the absence of a significant relationship between students' metacognition and level of project difficulty, (c) the absence of a significant metacognitive difference among the three groups of engineering students, and (d) the existence of a significant metacognitive change in mechanical engineering students' overall metacognition between the early and final stages of the design project. Eighteen distinct themes that described the influencing factors for students CSA change and 23 distinct themes that described the influencing factors for their CSM change were also presented. Based on the findings of this study, a number of recommendations were made to engineering educators and researchers who wish to pursue further research in this area.
