Abstract [en]

Soft skills are recognized as crucial for engineers as technical work is becoming more and more collaborative and interdisciplinary. Today many engineering educations fail to give appropriate training in soft skills. Linköping University has therefore developed a completely new course “Professionalism for Engineers” for two of its 5-year engineering programs in the area of computer science. The course stretches over the first 3 years with students from the three years taking it together. The purpose of the course is to give engineering students training in soft skills that are of importance during the engineering education as well as during their professional career. The examination is based on the Dialogue Seminar Method developed for learning from experience and through reflection. The organization of the course is innovative in many ways.
