Engineering graduates today need to work within multicultural and multinational workplace environments with adequate professional attributes or competencies. In addition to the mandatory engineering (technical) capabilities, today’s engineering graduates need to perform managerial, financial and other tasks in the workplace. The relevant literature on students’ learning outcomes shows that graduates from university courses are not necessarily getting the skills and competencies that are required by industry or employers. The ‘competency gap’ between engineering graduate attributes and employers’ expectations are elaborated in this paper using a case study of engineering graduates of Monash University. The paper also proposes a global engineering accreditation model to achieve global engineering competencies.
