Absolutely! First, you get plenty of practice solving problems in engineering school. If you want to see the type of problems you will be able to solve with your engineering education, you can search for practice exams for the licensing tests: Engineer-in-Training (EIT), and Professional Engineer (PE) exams. I found several hits when I searched for "EIT Practice Exam." Here is one: http://www.eitexam.com/tutorial/Random/RTSetUp.htm. Don't let the exam questions scare you away! That's what's so great about engineering; you get to solve problems most people can't!

If your undergraduate degree is in engineering, you will get lots of opportunities to solve problems. Part of the engineering education is to train your brain to dissect a complex, difficult problem into manageable, solvable pieces. Solving one piece provides enough information to solve another piece, and that sequence leads to the complex problem being solved in relatively simple steps. It's actually quite fun if you like puzzles. Personally, I love engineering because it trained me not only how to solve problems, but also taught me a lot about how the natural world works.
