Tom Wilke | How Engineers Can Succeed by Broadening Their Knowledge Base

 In Being an Engineer Podcast

Who is Tom Wilke?

Like many engineers, Tom Wilke spent his youth taking things apart and putting them back together. Engineering was a natural fit for him. As he progressed in his career, Tom began learning that he had another skill set that wasn’t as common for engineers: sincerity. He has built many engineering teams and bring dozens of successful products to the market because of his sincerity.

Tom also serves as an adjunct professor at the University of Colorado Boulder. There, he encourages his students to learn more than just what is taught in class. He shares with us a trend in education where students are more prepared now than ever. This holds true for software and programming skills.
