The ICE this week announced plans for a partnership with the American Society of Civil Engineers which it hopes will see the development of an international knowledge sharing network based around the internet. The partnership will also offer reciprocal membership to Fellows and senior Members. This is expected to give them an international passport of engineering competence.

Detailed discussions on the precise scope of the partnership are likely to take up to a year. These will centre on how to maintain professional standards and harmonise qualifications. It will also see the development of a new range of publications, meetings and conferences in the UK, US and on the internet.
