This research was conducted to identify the perception of Diploma in Electronic Engineering (DKE) students who had attended the trip to Beserah earth satellite station. The research instrument was a two-page self-administered questionnaires consisting of a dependent variable measures appropriateness of implementation and two independent variables measure benefits to individual and helpful in effective learning. The total of 103 samples only focused on the students who are studying microwave course. This study conducted a quantitative perception study in which the questionnaires were used to process the received data to produce a conclusion.

Reliability analysis of the instruments was processed by using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS). The internal consistency of the variables was estimated by the Cronbach?s Alpha reliability coefficient, which above 0.7. The finding provides concrete evidence to support a field trip as an approach of microwave education relate to appropriateness of implementation.
