Join us virtually on June 23rd as Peggy Kepuraitis Matson, Professor of Practice and Program Director at Washington University in St. Louis, speaks about two different kinds of engineers that every company needs. 



We are each familiar with the classic image of the engineer:  smart, left-brain dominant, strong focus on technology somewhat to the detriment of social interaction.  (And oh yea, white male, but let’s set aside the white male part of the stereotype for now.)  I call this classic image the “deep and narrow engineer.”  But I propose there’s not one, but two basic types of engineers that every company needs.  They share many engineering qualities, including the fact that both are really smart.  But they are different.  Each is best suited for different roles and each is equally valuable to the company.  It is critical that we engineers understand which one we are, what the role looks like in a healthy environment, and what the skills are that will bring career fulfillment and success.
