Join the debate at nce.co.uk

NCE this week launches it forums page on nce.co.uk to allow civil engineers to vent their feelings on a wide range of issues facing the profession and the construction industry.

Are you infuriated by Northern Ireland’s frozen pipes? Are government spending cuts putting your job at risk? Do you have any top tips on keeping on top of CPD, now that it is mandatory?

NCE this week launches it forums page on nce.co.uk to allow civil engineers to vent their feelings on a wide range of issues facing the profession and the construction industry.

Simply log on to the website and go to nce.co.uk/opinion/forums to visit various forums groups tailored to key areas of interest for the profession.

Groups currently online include:

  • NCE’s Crossrail forum
  • NCE’s transport forum
  • NCE’s tall buildings
  • NCE’s Energy & Waste forum
  • NCE’s water forum
  • NCE’s education, training & CPD forum

Within each of these groups are forums dedicated to more specific areas. For example, within the Energy & Waste group is a waste forum, a renewable energy forum, and a nuclear and traditional power forum.

Anyone registered with nce.co.uk is able to take part in the discussions taking place within each forum, and if the topic that you are passionate about isn’t there, then you can start your own discussion.

For example, one discussion currently under way in the Water and wastewater infrastructure forum is: “What do you think should be done in Northern Ireland - and other regions - to prevent the kind of widespread water supply problems that we saw this winter?”

NCE content editor Mark Hansford says the forums offer a brilliant opportunity to expand the debate that NCE is well known for.

“NCE’s letter pages have always been vibrant, full of hotly contested topics and passionately-held views,” says Hansford.

“I urge every single NCE reader, whether they’ve written a letter to us before, or have simply been so infuriated by another’s opinion that they wish they had done so, to seize this opportunity. It is a brilliant chance to engage with your fellow professionals on an international platform.”

Go to nce.co.uk/opinion/forums and join the debate now.
