Soft skills for software engineers turned out to be a very important factor in the success of any project helping the team’s dynamics and performance. Conversely, computer science undergraduates are possibly not aware of the importance of soft skills for their careers. Accordingly this paper’s main purpose is to highlight the gaps that exist for computer science graduates in Egypt. In this paper we present a simplified systematic literature review approach for this topic. A survey is conducted in Hellwan University, Cairo, Egypt where 136 computer and software engineering graduating students participated. The survey purpose was to uncover how students evaluate the importance of softs skills, how much they attain these skills, in addition to how much they think the university is helping its development. One outcome of our analysis is that there is a lack of understanding on how to define and thus provide those soft skills for computer science graduating students in Egypt.
