Basically they're ( as a group ) no brighter than a cross section of humans in general.
Maybe worse in some respects.
Part of how I make a living involves machining and fabrication of prototype or very
small run parts. I get to work with engineers almost daily. Let's just say not all
of the fancy CAD designs work in the real world.
I don't type well, or have the time to tell all the stories.....I should have wrote a book.
OK, so your complaint isn't really with the profession as the specialization. The people I've learned to call engineers not only design the systems but have (had) the skills and willingness to build them. I suspect what you are calling engineers I would call designers and what I am calling engineers you would call techs or mechanics. Let's just write this one off as cultural differences and move on with our opinions intact.
