The engineering operations in today’s auto industry need broader skill sets, notes Mark Fosmoen, director of North American engineering at Visteon Corp.

In Visteon’s case, that has led to a global search for engineers with expertise in such areas as artificial intelligence, learning systems and software testing and validation. The company also wants to supplement its development group with younger engineers that possess a “why not?” attitude and familiar with social media-style collaboration tools.

Fosmoen notes that the presence of these new engineers also invigorates more seasoned engineers—and gives them newcomers to mentor.
