In this work, we investigate the relationships among influence factors of learning environment on the creativity of students in the field of Computer Science and Information Engineering (CSIE). We first establish a hypothesis model of the environmental factors influencing creativity. Then, we investigate whether the environmental factors have a direct influence on the creativity of the CSIE students, or there exists any intermediate influences. In this work, an online questionnaire survey was conducted on CSIE students in National Chung Cheng University. A total of 161 valid samples were collected from February to April in 2017. The main influences in the learning environment were deconstructed into four factors: Human Aggregate, Organizational Measure, Social Climate, and Physical Component. The main result shows that Human Aggregate has a positive effect on Organizational Measure and Physical Component, and Human Aggregate also indirectly affects Organizational Measure through the Physical Component.
