Social and Communication Skills and Tools for Research in Engineering is a subject offered in the firstyear of the Bachelor’s Degree in Automotive Engineering, in the Faculty of Engineering of Vitoria-Gasteiz, at the University of the Basque Country. As a basic subject within this field, it has the capacityof being transversal to the other topics in the degree. In this context, it ensures that students will findmotivation which is always a challenge for the lecturers. Undoubtedly, this is achieved by proposingdynamics linked to the conceptual contents, which requires the involvement of the students.The use of active methodologies in this teaching-learning process, which allows us to secure thatthe student receives and completes constant training in tools such as Emotional Intelligence, Empathy,Assertiveness, Active Listening, etc., is related to obtaining the learning outcome in a procedure that requiresconstant interaction with the students and a high cohesion of the group.Logically, participation is the fundamental axis of this learning process. The methodology is basedon dynamic exercises related to the knowledge and personal development, the teamwork and the leadership,and, particularly, communication. In the field of communication, for example, intensive trainingis given on the composition, delivery and reception of a feedback message.In the first two years of this discipline, it has been possible to verify that, although at the beginningof the course the students’ expectations for this subject were low, upon completion they were surprisedby what they learned. They appreciated that the acquired skills can be useful, not only in their academiclife, but also in their professional path as well as on a personal level.
