The Integration of Soft Skills in the Teaching/Learning Programs: Engineering Schools in Morocco as a Case Study


In contemporary Moroccan education, the significance of soft skills alongside technical competencies has gathered increasing recognition, particularly within engineering institutions tasked with preparing Moroccan graduates for multifaceted professional landscapes. This paper explores the integration of soft skills within the teaching and learning process, focusing on engineering schools in Morocco. Through a comprehensive examination of pedagogical strategies, curriculum design, and institutional practices, this study elucidates the efforts undertaken by Moroccan engineering institutions to cultivate well-rounded engineers equipped with the communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and adaptability skills necessary for success in today's dynamic world. Drawing upon empirical evidence, the paper highlights the benefits of student-centered approaches, experiential learning opportunities, and inclusive educational environments in fostering the development of soft skills among engineering students. More importantly, the study underscores the significance of aligning educational objectives with industry demands and societal needs, thereby enhancing graduates' employability and competitiveness in the global workforce. By shedding light on the integration of soft skills through education, this research contributes to the ongoing discourse on engineering education reform and underscores the key role of engineering schools in Morocco in an attempt to shape the next generation of socially responsible, innovative, and adaptable engineers.
