Mastery of soft skills for students is very important and very much needed by graduates so that they are able to survive and compete in facing various work challenges. The purpose of this research is to produce an integrated learning model of soft skills that is valid and effectively used in tertiary institutions. This type of research is Research and Development (R&D) by following the ADDIE development stages (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation). The development of an integrated learning model for soft skills integrates soft skill attributes, namely: discipline, communication, creativity, cooperation, honesty, detail-oriented, polite and be confident. The research subjects were students of the Diploma Three (D3 Vocational) program of the Muhammadiyah Makassar Institute of Electromedical Engineering who took the Electronics Practice course, in the even semester of the 2018/2019 academic year totaling 29 students. The results of the study are: (1) After going through validation and product testing, the result is that the integrated learning soft skill model is valid for use in electronic practical learning; (2) The syntax of the integrated soft skills learning model developed by integrating 8 attributes of soft skills into the learning syntax, namely: discipline, communication, creativity, cooperation, honesty, detail-oriented, polite, and self-confident, can be carried out well so that it can be concluded. that the model developed is practically used in practical electronics learning; and (3) The test results are extended to the integrated learning model of soft skills in Electronics practical courses which are developed to effectively improve the soft skills of students based on observations of student activities and responses to the model.
