Michael “Gus” Gustafson II, Associate Professor of the Practice, teaches Engineering 103: Computational Methods in Engineering, the introductory course he created from scratch and which virtually all Pratt engineering students must take in order to receive a Duke degree. Gustafson, who is referred to as Dr. G by his students, also has a purportedly heavy online presence in Facebook groups for Pratt students, where he answers the various miscellaneous and sometimes frustratingly brutal questions about anything related to engineering. As a scholar who got his bachelors, masters and doctorate degrees at Duke, Dr. G has played a significant role in designing Pratt’s curriculum and shaping the overall direction of Duke’s engineering school.
