This study aims to determine the performance of the engineering students in terms of their final grade in the research project and its relationship with the result of course feedback survey in the research course and research experience. Descriptive type of research was utilized in the study with the engineering students enrolled in their undergraduate research course and conducting design project and feasibility study. Results revealed that the engineering students obtained very good rating in the final grades in research project but they experienced difficulty in writing and conducting research and considered the research process as not interesting activity. Various levels of experiences and interpretation of engineering students in the research process make them diverse on what they believe is either easy or difficult but they see positively the course feedback in contrast with the level of their research experience. Motivating students to write simple research as early as first year will somehow provide them a sense of appreciation regarding the nature and benefits of offering solutions to the problems of the community.
