Abstract

The emergence of the technology wave known as The Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR 4.0) changes the landscape of the future work environment such that graduates will be required to equip themselves with new skills. Emotional intelligence (EI) is among the skills demanded by graduates in facing the current challenges in the IR 4.0 and subsequently, meeting the demands of the job markets. However, previous studies carried out on EI in the engineering field have only focused on the assessment and impact of EI. Nevertheless, the suitable traits or attributes for EI need to be established to enable the effective assessment of EI. Therefore, this study was conducted to derive EI attributes using a systematic review method considering previous studies on emotional quotient (EQ) inventory worldwide. A crosswalk of six selected EQ inventories was produced in this study. Based on the crosswalk, five emerging themes were identified namely: understanding one's emotions, self-emotional awareness, conscientiousness of emotions, emotional influence and managing emotions. The findings of this study formed an appropriate attribute of EI that can be applied to IR 4.0 engineering graduates.
