Information-Seeking Behavior of Engineering and Business Students at Kuwait University

Auther : Suad Al-Bustan - Mohammad M. Etedali

Because of the seeming predominance of the Internet as a research tool at the present time, this study is an attempt to establish the information-seeking patterns of behavior among college students at the colleges of Business Administration and Engineering of Kuwait University. The research tool was in the form of a questionnaire administered to a sample of students from these colleges who are currently engaged in mandatory English-language research-writing courses. The study found that students see the Internet as a preferred search tool and do not consider knowledge of either English or computers a hindrance to their search efforts. Thus, the study concludes, it would be advisable for colleges, and indeed schools, to include classes in their curricula in the science of seeking information over the Internet.

Key words: Information-seeking, Information-seeking behaviours, Information needs, Behaviour, Application of technology, Information technology, English for specific purposes (Business), English for specific purposes (Engineering), English for specific purposes (Business vs Engineering).
