Abstract [en]

Soft skills are significant to the engineering labour market, especially in Information Technology where demands are high on for instance communication skill, teamwork skill, presentation skill, etc. Despite their importance, educating students in using those skills is not fully included in the bachelor education programmes, especially in developing countries. This project aims to gain insights in how soft skills are taught in Vietnamese universities, and which skills are missing in their bachelor education programmes. The findings are intended to support education in order to develop the teaching of soft skills for Vietnamese students, and decrease the unemployment rate of Vietnamese graduates. In this project, semi-structured interviews, by e-mail, have been used to collect the data. There are eight Vietnamese interviewees who have experiences from various education programmes. The interview transcripts were then analysed and categorised into themes. The results of our work are a preliminary identification of missing skills in the undergraduate programmes, and a set of proposed skills that could be considered to improve the education programmes.

Abstract [en]

In recent years there has been a rapid increase in the intake of international students at universities. Integrating foreign students into the disciplinary and social culture prevalent at the university is a challenging task. In this paper, first, we summarize the findings of three of our studies on the experiences of Chinese students studying computer science at the Department of Information Technology, Uppsala University, Sweden. Then, based on our findings we make recommendations on how to integrate international students into academic life at Computer Science departments. We focus on the program and course levels, and also at the level of individual students in their new social and cultural environment.
