Technical skills not enough - Casebourne

ICE news

ENGINEERS OF the future will be expected to manage and maintain the civilised environment so the community of engineers needs to include people with environmental as well as technical knowledge, ICE chief executive Mike Casebourne told the East Anglian graduates and students committee last month.

People with qualifications in geography, hydrology and other environmental subjects should be able to find a home at the ICE, he maintained.

Casebourne stressed that applicants for ICE membership in future should be judged on their capabilities and experience, not just academic qualifications.
