More so than mathematicians, physicists, chemists, and biologists? I think they are.
Looking through the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office designs sort of blows me away.
Looking at the intricacy of the design of many machines sort of blows me away. Was it their genetics, environment, and/or diet?

Many people believe that the longer you breastfeed a child, the smarter they'll be. Maybe engineers just got breastfed for a very long time. After that I'd say it's a mix of all three things you mention. They were predispositioned to be smarter in general and with analytical thinking. Add on top of that proper diet and being brought up in an environment that encouraged education, and I'd say that would essentially be the reason.
