ICE survey confirms groundswell

GROUND ENGINEERS make up the fifth largest subset in the civil engineering community behind structures and buildings, transport, management, and water and wastewater.

More than 17% of ICE's 60,000 membership considers ground engineering to be their primary area of professional interest, according to its latest comprehensive membership survey.

The results need to be interpreted with care.

For example, when asked to state their primary interest, members on average nominated more than two sectors (so sector percentages add up to 214%).

Nevertheless if extrapolated up to the full ICE membership this equates to a UK ground engineering community within the ICE of about 10,000. Ground engineering-related areas were nominated as subsidiary interests 20,000 times (see tables).
