Engineering Moment is a short chat about engineering, but the name means more than that. In physics, moment equals force times distance--it's a force multiplier. It's a way of leveraging your power for greater results. We believe engineering students are force multipliers in the world, and this podcast features their voices discussing topics related to engineering and society.
