Abstract: This research aims to describe the analysis of the need for computer-based training in improving the educational competence of graduates of engineering education. The online method of developing computer-assisted training is carried out in 3 stages, namely: Phase I needs analysis and model design, Phase II develops with validity and practicality, and Phase III will do the model testing. In this study, it will only be focused on phase I, namely the analysis of needs and design of the model, involving 50 students who take pedagogic learning in engineering education at the University in Padang, Indonesia. The instrument to collect information was used a questionnaire and analyzed the data with descriptive statistics. The results of the needs analysis and description of the research found that the level of ability of graduates of engineering education was categorized at a good level, which is seen from the aspect of pedagogical competence. Competence of education educator graduates is categorized at a sufficient level, which is seen from the aspects of designing learning tools and aspects of classroom mastery in the learning process running. Besides that, the information obtained from the results of interviews and observations in several schools, shows the educational competence of graduates of engineering education at a sufficient level. Other facts are also obtained from the results of the needs analysis by engineering education graduates, stating that graduates of engineering education graduates still have low educational competence, besides that the competencies of graduates are still low, and do not answer the needs of the workforce. It is time for graduates of engineering education to carry out upgrading, training and workshops to improve skills, competence and education through continuous online computer-assisted training.
