In this episode, I (Madhav) interview Adam Disque, an environmental engineering Masters student at Texas Tech University who earlier served in the US Air Force as a Bio-environmental Engineer. I met Adam last summer when he was interning at Raytheon in Tucson, where I am doing my PhD. In fact, this episode was recorded then. While most of the people we have interviewed and plan to interview on this podcast are well established in their fields, Adam isn’t as yet–he is a student. However, he makes up for that with some very useful insight into how engineers think. Added to that, his experience in the US Air Force makes the discussion even more interesting.
This episode is titled Thinking Like an Engineer. Engineering is something ThinQ does not currently have expertise in but we do eventually want to expa nd into engineering education at some point. In order to facilitate that, we will have a number of engineers on the podcast. In fact, we do have another episode recorded with Vidur Kaushish, my cousin who is an aerospace engineer in California who has just started a company which facilitates the launching of satellites. I hope you enjoy this episode. Towards the end, Adam narrates a particularly interesting experience while at the US Air Force. While it isn’t related to the topic at hand, it was too interes ting (and scary) to not include!
