Effective learning varies based on the students’ different learning styles and intelligence across the curriculum. This research determines the learning styles and multiple intelligences of 250 second-year education students and 200 engineering students. It employed a stratified sampling technique in the data collection process. It reveals that individual, group, auditory, and visual learning are among engineering students’ most common learning styles, while auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learning were the most prevalent among education students. Furthermore, engineering students most commonly demonstrated interpersonal, mathematical, and kinesthetic intelligence. Moreover, visual, linguistic, interpersonal, and kinesthetic intelligence were education students’ most commonly exhibited intelligence. Most intelligence types and learning styles of education and engineering students show a moderate positive correlation. The results of this study suggest that employing teaching strategies based on learning styles and multiple intelligences may positively affect students’ achievement. Likewise, the academic institutions must also consider the multiple intelligences in admitting students for any specific courses.
