High competition in the era of globalization requires repair and improvement over all of the academic community in Indonesia, including the students. This makes the students compete in their studies and potentially cause mental studyload which could have implications for many things. This study aims to determine the level of mental load among the students of the Department of Industrial Engineering Undip in semesters 3 and 5 using the NASA-TLX, with respondents as many as 50 students. In addition, this study try to find out the NASA-TLX’s dominant scale perceived by students and trying to prove, whether external factors such as previous semester grade point, study hours per day, entrance selection exam and free-time activities affect the score of mental load or not. The results of the mental study load measurement shows that the average score of mental study load of 80.04 (ponderable). For the dominant scale, the scale is Temporal Demand. Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) for external factors indicate that these factors do not have a significant influence on the existing score of the mental study load.
