The preparation of graduate engineers for jobs both those demanded now, as well as those projected with the required skills, abilities and competencies for the 21st century knowledge based-economy requires a pragmatic approach which demands engineering educators and trainers to understand the changing trends and needs of the society. For instance, it is evident that today’s students are no longer the people our educational system was designed to teach. This paper therefore seeks to identify some non technical skills that an engineer of the 21st century should have, and also suggested the pedagogy for realizing the impartation of such skills.
Keywords: Pedagogy, sophisticates skills, engineering educators/trainers lifelong learning innovation.
