From the Paper:

"Engineers will use a variety of complex machines and devices to create their engineering schematics and drawings, from computers and CAD (Computer Aided Drafting) programs, to electronics, optics, and even lasers and robotics in some cases. Engineers have to be flexible, because often, they will be deeply involved in one project, only to be put on another project at a moment's notice. They have to work together as a team, but they have to be able to work alone and in isolation, too."
