The purpose of this chapter is to investigate the architecture graduate's viewpoint on their 21st century skills. The study used a quantitative approach. Data was collected using a structured questionnaire from the graduates. A total of 141 graduates completed the online survey measuring the graduates' 21st century skills. The collected data was analyzed using SPSS v 25. The results indicate that development of the 21st century skills among graduates is generally at a moderate level, particularly information, media, and technology skills, and life and career skills. Graduates rated their learning and innovation skills as highest (M=3.76), followed by moderate scores for both life and career skills (M=3.60) and information, media, and technology skills (M= 3.04). This study contributes to the existing literature on 21st century skills by providing students perspective on the subject, which is, thus far, less discussed in existing published research.
