Abstract
Having transferable skills is very important in the 21-st century. However, there is limited information about the perceptions of which transferable skills are needed in the workplace. This study aims to explore the transferable skills among students and lecturers in universities in Indonesia. Transferable skills include communication skills, collaboration skills, problem-solving skills, entrepreneurship, and learning to learn skills. The five Likert scale questionnaire was given to lecturers and students from several Indonesian universities who provide bachelor program in engineering. The results showed that significantly the lecturers had a higher mean score of perception on all aspects of transferable skills compared with the students. For both the students and the lecturers, the highest score is collaborative skills and the lowest score is entrepreneurship skills. Overall results indicate the need to improve transferable skills of both lecturers and students
