You need to be really out of touch to actually believe that.I would definitely dare someone WITH a PhD in CS as pure software engineers know fuck all about hardware
Whether you like it or not if you've been a CS student you will have been exposed to how does the hardware function. There is no such thing as a pure software engineer, you have to know hardware too (to varying levels). Unless we're talking about people making websites and such but I wouldn't call those engineers and they are also not likely to have a PhD in CS.
The only people that are technically not required to know anything hardware wise would be those that dwell in into the theoretical side of things, however, those wouldn't really be engineers and more like mathematicians and they probably do have a PhD in CS, ironically. Still, the presumption that they'd all be clueless is nothing short of being arrogant or ignorant or both.
