Engineers make better government officials


Engineers tend to have a different approach to solving problems. It's a more 'grounded' approach to solving problems so to speak. Lawyers tend to have a 'legalistic' approach.

Compare former MMDA chairman Bayani Fernando's (engineer) stint to the current chairman Francis Tolentino's (lawyer). Also, almost all the top government officials of China are scientists and engineers. Their government's authoritarianism aside, their style of leadership tends to be more pragmatic. Imagine if in a democracy, scientists and engineers are running government instead of lawyers or career politicians.
