Careers: Engineering Management – Online

Engineers make valued business leaders

Engineers can become outstanding business leaders. Their technical training makes them effective problem solvers. They have learned to take bits of information, define the problem, break it down into small parts and develop a solution. And engineering managers have the influence and the credibility to translate engineering challenges to non-technical executive leadership.

Masters of Engineering Play

Wes Snyder, the vice president of engineering at A-dec, discusses the skills you need and the changes you should expect when moving into engineering leadership.
