Abstract: Industrial training refers to placement of students in the industry or organization for a certain period of time in order for them to apply their theoretical knowledge in the actual career world. Industrial training is one of the main components in the Computer Science curriculum in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). Meanwhile, Industrial Training Systems (ITS) is a web based system which is developed to manage the industrial training process in UTM. ITS consist of four major modules for students which are student registration, student placement, student online log book and student assessment. Beside the four modules, ITS also facilitated with communication features like email notification and announcements. Hence, ITS become a solution to improve the current process of managing and monitoring the industrial training which were previously being done manually. Indirectly, ITS gives an opportunity for students to utilize internet technology as part of their effective learning tool during industrial training. The aim of this paper is to analyze the satisfaction rate of students towards ITS from the aspect of usability. Usability is used to measures the usable and functional of IT’ss functions from the aspect of learnability, efficiency, memorability, errors and satisfaction. A survey has been distributed online to undergraduate students who have used ITS during their industrial training period from year 2012 until 2015. The results are derived from satisfactory Likert scales which indicate that students were satisfied with the functionalities provided by ITS.
