Abstract: This study assesses to investigate the soft skills among engineering students in India. In this assessment we selected 150 final year engineering students to examine the acquisition of soft skills in the engineering education. In particular, 10 common questionnaires were prepared based on Likert Scale format to collect data from 5 different branches of engineering. The questionnaires were prepared based on HRs requirements of their companies. It was founded that the different branches students have chosen various skills. The answers proved that, the 5 branches of students need to acquire and inculcate soft skills to face workplace challenges. The collected data has shown the skills gap, genuine position and need of expertise of the students in skills. The conclusions are demanding that the students are needed to enhance and recognize the importance of soft skills to reach the workplace challenges.
