Recent studies show that today’s employers are increasingly focused on hiring graduate engineers who possess a broader skill-set than in the past. Consequently one of the challenges facing regional universities is how to produce engineering graduates who have not just the traditional technical skills but who also have the necessary business acumen and managerial know-how to contribute positively to local business development. It is accepted that good communication skills and team-working ability are the two most important soft skills for graduates but it is often difficult to develop these adequately in an already packed curriculum. Commercial awareness is also identified as a key employee attribute however students on undergraduate engineering programmers often struggle to understand its significance. The interaction of government, university, industry and research in 3d model of synergy network, will try to train the industry-ready engineers. The approach aims to produce engineering graduates that have the necessary business management skills to be ‘industry-ready’. Opportunities for developing key soft skills have been embedded across the whole curriculum and across all years of the mechanical and engineering management programmers.
