Abstract: The high unemployment rate of engineering graduate students in higher education contributes to the increasing need for employment and the high number of job seekers in the era of the industrial revolution 4.0. Need solutions from this case, especially how engineering students in higher education provide alternative applied solutions that can be implemented. Entrepreneurship technology training is an alternative solution for engineering students in higher education. This study aims to design a model of production-based entrepreneurship technology training to improve the skills of engineering students in higher education. To produce a production-based entrepreneurship technology training model, four stages of development research are carried out: 1) Define; 2) Design; 3) Develop; and 4) Disseminate. This paper is limited to, the design stage of a production-based entrepreneurship technology training model. A sample of 550 students took entrepreneurship technology courses in higher education in Padang, Indonesia. Data collection instruments in the form of questionnaires and Focus Group Discussions. The results of this preliminary study are the framework of a production-based entrepreneurship technology training model consisting of five phases, namely, phase 1) Analysis of Entrepreneurial Material and Consumer Needs; phase 2) PIKEN: Evaluation of Student Entrepreneurship Competencies; phase 3) Designing a Business Start Up; phase 4) Formulation of Production-Based Business Plan; phase 5) Online Store Collaboration and Evaluation. This production-based entrepreneurship training model is expected to help reduce the unemployment rate of tertiary education graduates, especially vocational education graduates and students can survive with their entrepreneurial competencies.
