-Team Player: It goes without saying; you can go further when you work together. Same as sports right?
-Constant Learner: And finally having the willingness to learn and improve yourself will help you become a better athlete as well as an engineer.
Along with these complimentary skills, a good engineer should also develop Problem Solving Skills and focus on their Technical Knowledge as well.
The skills and characteristics you are learning as a participant in these sports will be very valuable throughout your career. Companies love to higher former athletes because they are always well-skilled in the arts of teamwork, dedication, hardwork, and communication. These are intangibles that relate to all careers.
