I was in part using "nerd" as a disability neutral term for "noticeably on the autistic spectrum", but mostly for the kind of child who is introverted, enjoys reading and schoolwork, and is a complete fail at popularity contests and similar. An "engineering geek" is one of the more successful adult forms of such a child, and can be found focussed on code, disliking meetings, possibly vaguely contemptuous of managers, and uncertain whether salespeople, politicians, etc. are even members of the same species as them. Their idea of a fun social event probably involves a tech museum, or a hackathon, or maybe a science fiction convention.
