Here's the thing: Is it true that if you are excellent at math but bad at writing essays you will never succeed in engineering as well as being an engineer?. I am asking this because I am getting a lot of mixed answers where many people say that you have to be good at writing essays whereas most individuals say that you can still be an engineer with lousy writing skills in terms of essays. Another question being that if you are excellent at math can't write essays for your life, will this give you a harder time writing reports

I have worked for many years with engineers of all kinds. Some were likely brilliant in their field, however, they had a very difficult time in expressing themselves in writing, and some had difficulty even in oral communications. Whether it is describing the results of a test, describing what you might need to purchase,etc, it is vital that you have the capability to do that well. I have seen some men and women who were very bright, but their shortfall in their ability to communicate, whether verbally or in writing, held them back from advancing in their field. You don't really want to be an engineer who cannot communicate well. YOu will be miserable and never be able to reach your true potential. Maybe you need to get some help in your writing skills while you are studying engineering, if that is truly where your passion is. There are likely people who could tutor you in your writing, maybe someone good in English grammar, composition, etc. Good luck~\
