Social competence

Of soft skills and T-shaped skills

Apart from professional qualifications the industry has also been both requiring and promoting social competence from their specialists: so-called soft skills like intercultural competence and the ability to both lead and work in a team.
So-called T-shaped skills go one step further: employees are expected to think outside their own little technical box and consider factors like profitability, interculturality or the efficient use of resources when working on a project. These skills can be either covered by a single person or by a team of specialists.
These expectations are mirrored by recently created jobs: Boston University offers a program to become a Societal Engineer, for example. Specialists in that field are then employed by companies to connect the representatives of the different teams accordingly.
Scandinavia and Singapore are also already integrating these skills in their jobs, and even China is on the verge of broadening their engineering education characterized by strict, discipline-oriented thinking by moving into a direction of teaching an interdisciplinary and more team-oriented approach.
