From the survey it was found out that there were respond of the student Seberang Perai
Polytechnic as a platform to survey about the facilities provided at each department in PSP.

students from all department thinks that the size of classes is standard, whereas only 6 % from
student of PSP thinks that the size of classes is large.
From the survey, it was found that about 10 student from Commerce Department
agreed that classroom equipted have enough chairs and tables for the students.
Meanwhile, there are 57% respondents thinks the projected provided in classroom was
At the same time, that an outstandingly high percentage respondents agreed that
facilities at PSP is not enough and must make some improvement or always update some service
that provided in Seberang Perai Polytechnic.
Based on the survey facilities provided at each department in Seberang Perai Polytechnic
as a platform to make all the students comfortable while though their P&P lesson in classes.
There are some suggestions or recommendations to improve the facilities in PSP.
Firstly, to make all students comfortable in classes, size of classes is the main point as a
solution. But from our survey, there are many students agreed that the size of classes is in
standard size. So, we assume there are no changes or suggestion will be taked.
Secondly, Seberang Perai Polytechnic need to make sure that equited in classes with
enough chairs and tables for the student. From our survey there are many student from
Mechanical Department, Technology Department and Electrical Department disagree about this
matter. It’s maybe because their department not had enough space to make sure the equipted
enough for students. So, our suggestion from this survey Seberang Perai Polytechnic should add
more classrooms or built more building for classroom to make sure the facilities of equipted.
Lastly, there are some problems from LCD that provided in Seberang Perai Polytechnic.
Based on our survey, more than a half respondents agree that problem might arise when
projected are not functioning such as waste time and interruption in P&P lesson. From our
suggestion, Seberang Perai Polytechnic must always updated and service the projected at less
once a year to make sure that the projected functioning well. On the other hand, we also suggest
that PSP have to provided more projected as a backup if anything go be happen which mean if
any projected are not functioning well.
