The importance of soft skills development in polytechnic students

The Importance of Soft Skills Development in Polytechnic students

A generation ago, classic picture of working engineer would have been like a person planning or

tinkering with his tools all by himself. At that time engineering was typically examined as

isolated degree learnt to fulfill all or only technical skills. The scope of engineering has widened,

due to the progress and improvement in technology and communication. Modern Engineering

often works under traditional engineering system. MNCs in engineering domain have abrupt

change, and as a result this has made cross-culture association an essential part of day to day

work. Modern engineering is a specialist that is dedicated to the design, development and

improvement of various concepts of engineering and technology. Modern engineering

technology deals with practical knowledge rather than theoretical one. In such an environment,

today’s Engineer undoubtedly needs soft-skills (to handle interpersonal relationships) apart from

his core expertise (technical skills) for survival at work.

In academic and career world, having a strong background in “hard” skills will be helpful but the

number of employers will only improve along with “soft” skills. Soft skills include the ability to

adapt to changing circumstances and the willingness to learn through experience, and are

applicable across multiple disciplines and careers. It is important for students of polytechnic

college to develop soft skills as they prepare themselves for college and enter the work arena.

According to research, 9 out of 10 employers believe that Soft-skills will become increasingly

important as globalization speeds.

Let us drill down on each of the 4 essential soft-skills required for an engineer:

1.Communication Skills

Communication ultimately means “Good Listening”. If you attentively listen to others,

you can show that you really care about others. . Listening allows your mind to clearly

understand the need of another person, so that you can follow-up with appropriate action.

Having a good communication skill makes one deliver ideas clearly, effectively and with

confidence which helps to communicate with various individuals from different cultural

backgrounds. As a result you can follow-up with appropriate action.

2. Self Confidence

Believing in yourself and all your personal skills can help you work with people better.

To do a difficult or a new task and generally achieve all the things, you need to be a

master of soft skills. It means self-assurance, self- belief in one's personal judgment,

ability, power, etc. Confidence makes your mind creative. The more confident you

become, the clearer you think and the easier you conceive ideas. As a result you can

follow-up with appropriate action. That automatically reflects in the clarity of your

communication and finesse of your work

3.Collaboration

It is imperative for best polytechnic college bound students to function efficiently and

appropriately in groups, collaborate on projects and accept constructive criticism when

working with others. People who prefer working alone likely struggles in college and

beyond, as the majority of careers require collaboration.

4.Leadership Skills

While it is important to be able to function in a group, it is also important to demonstrate

leadership skills when necessary. Both in college and within the workforce, the ability to

assume the lead when the situation calls for it is a necessity for anyone who hopes to

draw upon their knowledge and "hard" skills in a position of influence.
