Can a data engineer become a good data scientist?

There is no doubt that a data engineer is equipped with the necessary technical skills and acumen to become a good data scientist – but there is no guarantee to it as the primary skillsets of a data scientist is not only to engineer or transform data but to model it in a way that actionable and relevant insights can be drawn from the data.
The advantage that a data engineer has in the quest of becoming a data scientist over and above other candidates is that they would have a better know-how of data and would be able to identify anomaly must faster than other candidates.
