More than 300 engineers were awarded various forms of membership of ICE at a ceremony at One Great George Street last week. They join 90,000-plus ICE members across the world who create and maintain infrastructure.
ICE membership is awarded to a huge range of engineers practising in the broad area of civil engineering who have met all the requirements of the ICE’s Chartered Professional Review.
They are now entitled to add the letters MICE to their name and adopt the Institution’s own protected title, “Chartered Civil Engineer”.
“We had another hugely successful day at OGGS and it was incredibly gratifying to receive such positive feedback across all grades of those attending,” said ICE membership director Sean Harris.
“One of the undoubted highlights was meeting Dominik McCormick, an 18 year old apprentice who works for Aecom’s transport division in Birmingham. He is now officially the youngest ever person to be awarded EngTech MICE status by the ICE. He was presented with his certificate by ICE President Tim Broyd, with his very proud father Paul, an Aecom director looking on.
“With young technicians like Dominik sitting alongside our more venerable fellows, this is a super event through which to reinforce our core message that membership is a continuum or journey which can be joined at any stage of an engineers’ career, with guaranteed help, support and direction throughout that journey.
“We will continue to present qualifications at the blue riband events and hope that those graduating continue to receive their certificates from the President proudly in front of their colleagues and family.”
