University - Professor Resources
Many resources are available to professors teaching at a university, college, or technical school for classes studying engineering, architecture, construction management, or any field related to the use of precast/prestressed concrete. If you are a student, ask your professor to request these resources on your behalf.
Instructional Material - 'Prestressed in a Box' - the PCI Student Education Committee is offering this technical material that was created and compiled by PCI’s Student Education Committee as a resource for professors teaching concrete-related courses at not-for-profit institutions of higher learning. The technical content was created by university professors and vetted by the PCI Technical Activities Council. This material is approved for use only as part of the curriculum for a credit-earning course at the graduate or undergraduate level. It may not be used by for-profit entities.
