An engineer takes more math courses in the process of getting his college degree.
the fact that he HAS a degree is mostly proof that he can drink all night and spout bullshit back at his instructors in the day.
If you want something designed that probably won't work you get an engineer.
If you want it to work you have a technician looking over his shoulder.
If you want something fixed for the love of god don't let an engineer get between you and a soldering iron.
As most here can likely tell I'm a technician. and I only associate with engineers who think poorly of most of their degreed brethern...
Frankly I think there are good engineers, but they are a minority <10%
