This article intends to debate the institutional modes of first-year adjustment to higher education. Specifically, the aim is to analyze and consider the need to include social and academic integration activities in the curricular programs. The presented contributions are based on the investigations over the case study course that was studied using non-experimental and descriptive approach. The “Projeto FEUP¿? (Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto) course is analyzed as it addresses the mentioned integration concerns explicitly by providing tutoring by selected older students (relating to social integration) and adequate teamwork challenges (relating to academic integration). The presented case study course is given to about 1,000 students across nine engineering degrees at the Faculty of Engineering of University of Porto, in Portugal. The article includes some details about not infrequent practices such as “hazing¿? of newcomer students and strategies for circumventing associated disadvantages. The results shown in the article indicate that the students involved tend to see it as a significant academic integration device, regarding mainly academic work and expectations. © The Author(s) 2015.

The so called 'Soft Skills' (SSs) are the set of non-technical skills that enable a given individual to interact effectively and harmoniously with other people. These skills are also interesting for the promotion of deep knowledge and to foster academic success. The case study analyses the very special 'Projeto FEUP' course that promotes SSs across all engineering programmes in the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP), in Portugal. This is done right after the arrival of students at the institution by means of producing several communicational items over an adequate technical work. The study involved 781 students. The presented results hint that Soft Skills are, in fact, improved after half-semester but this is not the sole product of the mentioned course.
