 In Being an Engineer Podcast

Ogun Unal

Ogun Unal’s expertise is in industrial engineering and metallurgy. He shares a particularly interesting example with us describing how the oxidized top layer of molten Aluminum can be pushed sub-surface and lead to failures in the cast components if not handled properly. Ogun also shares an interesting take on how engineers spark change in the world, and what life might be like without the innovations brought to us by engineers.
