An engineering supervisor must have a strong knowledge of engineering and excellent supervisory skills. However, requirements can vary by employer; for example, an engineering supervisor at a large manufacturing company may need a postsecondary degree in engineering, while an engineering supervisor at a large hotel may need substantial deal of experience in building maintenance.
