  • Introduction

    Soft Skills is introduced to complement UMP students’ technical skills and knowledge. Generally, today’s job market demands more than just knowledge and skills. Beyond these job-specific technical skills, soft skills are nearly universally sought by employers. The challenge is to introduce a program which allows students to learn and capitalize their soft-skills competencies.

    Soft Skills department is given the responsibility to organize necessary programs based on feedback from the industries (Fatmawati, Mansor, Mohd Azam, Muhammad Nubli & Norrihan, 2005). The implementation of Soft Skills programs requires effort from all quarters as this program cannot be realized without the support from each and every UMP associate and student. It is the university’s mission to produce proficient graduates physically, emotionally, spiritually and intellectually.

    Soft Skills concept was initiated in 2002, and it has been implemented in stages since then. Soft Skills program is continually evaluated and improved with regards to its method of implementation, content and evaluation to match the current market and MOHE’s needs.
