social skills ... are to blame?

Many times we can associate poor social skills with engineers, I wonder if this is a variable which could also be associated with the bad behavior that makes an engineer do a crime. 

What surprises us a little bit about engineers doing bad things is that education is many times the way to live a better live and thus, to not fall in this eerie statistics, howvever, there are always anomalies in the measures... right?

Taken as a group, there will be the same percentage of engineers who are criminals as any other group. There are some bizarre ones here though.

>Since when have seismic engineers been able to predict earthquakes?

Yes, that's a weird one. Perhaps they were overconfident in their assurances. I'd lay as much or more blame then on the officials who were stupid enough to believe them.

Crime and humane nature

Crime and humane nature is universal. The degree of crime or white collar crime changes from time to time and place to place. But I have often observed more subtle from of prevarication and that tantamounts to white collar crime of first or second degree. However, engineers rationlize it to their liking.

This is also true for lawyers, management staffs and doctors.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
