A PROFESSOR'S PERSPECTIVE DEVELOPING A GREATER FEEL FOR STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING A faculty approach to augmenting structural engineering students' understanding of prestressed concrete member behavior using parametric analysis by Dr. John J. Myers, Missouri University of Science and Technology Just before the holiday season, Dr. Reid Castrodale, the managing technical editor of ASPIRE®, approached me with a wonderful opportunity to share my “professor’s perspective” on educating our current students and future bridge engineers. This would be a chance to share what I have learned in nearly a decade of practical design experience in industry and, more recently, nearly two decades of experience as a professor and educator at Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T), which is one of the oldest civil engineering programs in the nation (2020 will be the 150th anniversary of the start of the civil engineering program and founding of our institution). So, naturally, I immediately said, “Yes!” The next thought that crossed my mind was, “What could I possibly share with the ASPIRE audience that would perhaps help other educators in our field influence structural engineering students in their educational development?”
