My firm partners with engineering firms simply to be the "people persons" on projects. Our presentations come across so much better, they say.

You wouldn't believe the number of engineers/designers I know who are strictly trained on the job, alot don't even have a college degree.

I am married to an engineer and chances are someday I will live in Greenville, SC.
