What is engineering? What are the important aspects of engineering that anybody should know? Can we talk about all this without getting too deep into math? Engineer and researcher Sadhan Sathyaseelan joins the podcast to kick off a series of episodes meant to introduce engineering concepts to anyone, not just the people studying it in college.
