TECC 94: Certification Questions – Special Q&A Series from The Engineering Career Coach and the WPI MBA Program 2 of 6

January 8, 201621 min
This podcast is the second of six special Q&A Series which airs every first Friday of the month in addition to our regular episodes through May 2016. I answer more questions from our listeners asking for career advice. 



Here is the summary of the questions and answers I’ve discussed in this session:

Question:

How are engineers generally different from other people in terms of leadership, management, or work style? – Christopher from California

Answer:

Engineers are different because they need to be both technically and people savvy.
Develop these important core skills and implement/use them at work.

Question:

What do you think about studying engineering online? Also is it detrimental, as an engineering student, to get your bachelor's degree in one engineering discipline but pursue a graduate degree in a different engineering discipline? – Terrance from Louisiana

Answer:

Online degrees can be great as long as you have some level of people interaction (calls/routine meetings)
