Abstract

A significant growth in the number of admissions into university engineering programs in recent years is driving graduate engineers to be distinctive to ensure employability after graduation.[1] Furthermore, surveys of engineering employers have found that engineering graduates often lack competency in their transferable skills, which is undesirable.[2] Employers desire these transferable skills as it renders the graduates much more adaptive to the ever-changing environment of professional engineering, therefore, transferable skills must also be a demonstrable quality for a competent engineer.[3]
