Abstract: Shyness is a universal problem that happens among students, including engineering students. Shy students have a high introverted trait and they are more suitable to choose a non-social career. However, the career as an engineer requires someone to possess skills and becomes highly competent, besides not shy to communicate and deal with various social situations. This made engineering graduates unemployed and contributed to the unemployment rate of the country. This article discusses the shyness problem and its relevance to the engineering students’ career development. The strategies to eliminate shyness are deliberated in brief based on previous studies. Then, the strategies to eliminate shyness are discussed concerning the engineering students’ career development.
