The investigation has been undertaken in order to study the study habits of Enginering students and to check whether there is any significant difference in study habits of male and female Engineering students and also to find out whether there is any significant difference in study habits of Engineering students studying in Govt. and private management of Jorhat district. A representative sample of 200 Engineering students for this purpose have been selected by using simple random sampling techniques. Descriptive survey method has been used for the present study. Self made questionnaire made by the investigator was used to collect data. Simple percentage, t-test statistical technique was used to analysis the collected data. It has been found from the study that Engineering students have a good habit of study. They read magazines/journals which is related to their course content and help for the development of their career and also suit their interest. They surf internet for different purpose including educational. They also prefer to read books on various items i,e novel, poem, short stories, books on science and technology etc. The study indicate that female Engineering students acquire good habit of study and the Engineering students studying in private management has a better habit of study than the Engineering students study in Govt. management.

The researchers validated the intrinsic motivation sub-scale of the Academic Motivation Scale AMS-28 college version developed by Vallerand et al. (1992) in the Indian context. 282 IInd year engineering students (50 girls and 220 boys) belonging from Lovely Professional University, Phagwara, Punjab and Osmania University, Hyderabad, Telangana, were the sample subjects of the study. The three dimensions of academic intrinsic motivation, namely, Intrinsic motivation to know, intrinsic motivation towards accomplishments and intrinsic motivation to experience stimulation, showed acceptable internal consistency reliability, with their Cronbach’s alpha being 0.648, 0.641 and 0.691 respectively. The ordinal alpha and ordinal omega estimates of the sub-scales were 0.65, 0.66, 0.72 and 0.67, 0.7, 0.76 respectively using the Psych function of R software. The goodness of fit of the model was tested using SPSS AMOS Ver. 23 and the estimands like CMIN/DF, TLI, CFI and RMSEA had their estimates satisfying the benchmarks values except RMR. The results indicated good psychometrics of the academic intrinsic motivation sub-scale of AMS-28 in the Indian context
