Entrepreneurs are "the engines of economic growth." They also contributed immensely to the constructive commitment of a nation to economic prosperity and social progress. Contributions include the invention and creation of employment opportunities. Since entrepreneurship is associated with self-employed individuals, it is perceived to be an effective approach to address the challenge of employability, especially among young people. Therefore, recognizing the variables that determine entrepreneurial motivation is important since entrepreneurial behavior is the result of purpose. This research aims to identify the factors of entrepreneurial inspiration and purpose between final year engineering students. As most research suggests that entrepreneurial motive may be calculated through the use of Planned Behavior Theory (TPB), this principle is utilized as a theoretical foundation in this research. The main parameters of this research are personal behaviors, perceived social guidance, and perceived behavioral management. This theoretical paradigm has been tested with 372 final year engineering students at engineering colleges in the coastal Karnataka part of India. Findings have shown that personal perception, presumed behavioral influence, and perceived social assistance are indicators of entrepreneurial motive. This research will assist policy departments, organizations, researchers, business students, advisors, and other stakeholders in identifying suitable ways to promote entrepreneurship in higher education institutions and, ultimately, in the community
