It is a tremendous honour to be awarded the 2018 Milne Medal, particularly given the great engineers who have been awarded the medal before me. This paper is based on the lecture given in November 2018, and in it I hope to show some of the privileges that structural engineers have, and their responsibilities, and the often unexpected education that engineering projects can provide.
