Engineering Careers that combine marketing and engineering/computer science

  1. Feb 26, 2010 #1
    I'm interested in both marketing (creativity, communication, persuasion) and engineering/computer science (theory and its application to develop new technologies).

    What are some careers that combine the two?

    I just ran across this -- it's more for a mechanical engineering position, but it may help you get an idea...

    Web programming, data mining (Microsoft and Google have departments devoted to tailoring search engines to clients needs), a good number of management positions.

    Any sort of product management or sales for a software company would fit. They have equivalent positions to what berkeman posted at companies like Oracle and Microsoft etc.
