TECC 94: Certification Questions – Special Q&A Series from The Engineering Career Coach and the WPI MBA Program 2 of 6
January 8, 2016•21 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:
How are engineers generally different from other people in terms of leadership, management, or work style? – Christopher from California
Engineers are different because they need to be both technically and people savvy.
Develop these important core skills and implement/use them at work.
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
Online degrees can be great as long as you have some level of people interaction (calls/routine meetings)
