More than 400 people attended a ceremony at One Great George Street last week to see newly qualified ICE members receive their professional review certificates.
Recipients from all corners of the globe including the USA, Korea, Barbados and India, were presented their certificates by ICE president Jean Venables. Venables congratulated the candidates, saying it was an impressive achievement on a personal and professional level.
“Becoming a professionally qualified member of the ICE is indicative of a significant level of commitment, competence and professional standing. It is an internationally recognised qualification and not awarded lightly. I welcome all our newly qualified technician, associate, incorporated and charted engineer members as well as our new fellows,” said Venables.
“Skilled civil engineers are vital for society to function, providing critical infrastructure. ICE professionally qualified members are among the best engineers in the world and make a significant contribution to society.”

The spring session saw 317 members successfully pass their professional review, including 269 chartered members (CEng MICE), 15 technician members (EngTech TMICE), 30 incorporated members (IEng MICE), two chartered environmentalist members (CEnv MICE) and two chartered environmentalist associate members (CEnv AMICE). This is the first time the CEnv AMICE has been awarded.
Forty four fellows of the ICE were also admitted, including seven presidential invitees. Presidential invitations to fellowship are based on candidates’ reputation and contribution to the field of civil engineering.
Venables continued: “Skilled civil engineers are vital for society to function, providing critical infrastructure such as transport, energy, water and waste networks. ICE professionally qualified members are among the best engineers in the world and make a significant contribution to society.”
