Technology transfer is a useful resource for improving technology and it is widely used in various industrial fields. The application of technology transfer in the construction industry can be viewed via the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT). The transfer of technology has been implemented in the construction of the MRT but there are a number of factors and barriers in implementing as well. Therefore, this study attempts to understand the technology transfer in the MRT project in the country and study the factors that influence the process of technology transfer in the MRT project. Data collection was conducted through interviews with respondents involved in technology transfer MRT project namely MRT Corporation Sdn. Bhd. And MMC-Gamuda KVMRT (PDP) Sdn. Bhd. The results showed organisational capabilities, relational capabilities, communications, level of absorptive capacity and technological capabilities, development of skilled human resources and economic advancement are factors that influenced the transfer of technology in MRT project. The findings of this study can be used as a guide for the MRT project in the future to avoid failure in the technology transfer.
