This research aims to analyze students’ tendencies in choosing themes/titles for their final assignments in the Leather Technology Study Program from 2003 until 2012. Results of this study can be considered in the future in directing the students to carry out their final projects which are in line with the achievement of ALT vision. This research used descriptive qualitative approach with quantitative content analysis (content analysis qualitative /QCA) in analyzing the data. The results of this research showed that the distribution of students interested in completing final project through industrial internship program was 93.23%, through research was 0.52% and through the independent work was 6.25%. Based on the raw material types which are of interest, there are 3 out of 8 kinds of animals: cows 45.26%, sheep 26.84%, and goats 22.11%, Based on leather articles, there are 3 out of 8: shoe upper leather 33.68%, glove 28.42%, and upholstery 11.58%. Based on leather processing, there are 3 out of 11: retanning 27.60%, finishing 23.44%, and tanning 13.54 %. The researched concludes that Leather Tannery Technology Program Study students prefer to take internship program as final assignment continued with Inovation work program. Inovation work program must be developed by expanding the use of raw materials from the skin of small animals such as rabbit, snake, fish, etc. needs to be developed, and students’ creativity in leather processing and finishing should be increased.
