Communication skills have been highlighted as among the most important skills to be conquered by the engineering graduates. As new industrial revolution strikes in, engineering graduates are required to relearn and upgrade their generic skills to remain significant in the challenging working environment. Previous studies have identified the attributes of communication skills, but those attributes may not be relevant anymore; thus, there is a need to identify the current attributes of communication skills for IR 4.0 engineering graduates. Therefore, this study was done to derive the traits/attributes of communication skills using systematic review method considering previous studies from 2006-2019. A crosswalk of seven previous researchers was produced in this study. Emerging themes from the crosswalk are ability to effectively speak with audience; ability to convey a clear written communication; ability to communicate with people from different background; ability to deliver presentations; ability to express own idea; and ability to listen and give appropriate feedback. Findings of the study will provide a significant set of attributes in communication skills for IR 4.0 engineering graduates and embark the opportunities for further research by the authors

Employers and societies more and more ask for capable and ready to work graduates, possessed with some amount of competences when getting into the workforce. But they want for very skilled employee has been mounting, the difference between capabilities of graduates and educations searched by the employers remain to be a thoughtful concern among many nations. The factors that affect the growth and sustainability of the graduates are solely due to lack of non-technical skills such as team spirit, communicative skills, decision making and solving the problems that exist in course of time and creative skills. The important subject addressed by the current study is to identify the factors that influence the science and technology (S&T) graduates’ in respect to fitness for purpose. The findings showed that the S&T graduates voiced their opinions on the importance of non-technical skills which are essential for their survival and development in their respective professions. The vision-2020 has located science and technology as significant as the educational policies are often observed as effective forces behind economic growth in industrialized countries.
