Among the objectives of this study is the level of requirement of the Soft Skills (SS) element to produce a competitive Mechanical Engineer and identify the most dominant Soft Skills needed in the current job market against Mechanical Engineers. The questionnaire distributed to respondents and data was analysed using XL-STAT 2014 software to obtain Discriminant Analysis (DA) to achieve the objective of the study. The overall percentage for (SS) elements is 91% respectively. This study will be a complementary set for the students of Mechanical Engineering in Malaysia. Mastering the features required by the industry makes it easy for students to put themselves in the real job world.
