Development and Assessment of Transferable Skills

Inclusion of the achievement of transferable skills as part of the accreditation criteria by engineering accreditation bodies such as ABET, HKIE, and Engineers Ireland have highlighted the importance of transferable skills in university curriculum.

Research in this area may involve studies on student development of these skills and the process, methods and development tools to assess and certify transferable skills that graduates must possess in order to cope in this ever-evolving economy.
