To me, Dr. Roger Dickey was the most influential professor that I had. It was an absolute privilege to attend several classes that he taught. It started with a freshman level class – something like Introduction to Environmental Engineering; he called me out for nodding off in class. At the end of my time at SMU, I was able to get to the point where we were discussing options for culvert size on HEC-HMS software for the senior design project.
Dr. Dickey approached instruction of his classes with great conviction; in turn, he expected the best from his students. He is a great professor. He is a great man.
