Abstract: An engineering education is just as valid as one in arts or classics. Engineers in the 21st century must be capable of working in, or leading, a multi-disciplinary team. The skills of marketing, project management, finance and international collaboration will be just as important as the more familiar elements of design, development and engineering production.
Keywords: engineering education; engineering training; multi-disciplinary teams; teamwork; marketing; project management; finance; international collaboration; engineering design; product development; engineering production.
