    The basic law of engineering is precision, when something needs to be flat and square, then it needs to be flat and square, there is no such thing as close enough.  The engineer has to have the skill and patience to work on the unit, by hand if necessary, until it is flat and square.  It is the first thing you learn in your apprenticeship, well the first thing after you've spent 6 months sweeping the floor, running for material for the tradesmen, making the tea, and getting the rolls for tea break.

    Engineers need to be detail oriented and extremely precise. This in addition to superior quantitative skills and a problem solving mindset.
