The fewer the grades the better


I agree with the comments of Peter Smart and Colin C Gimblett (NCE last week) about the need for a slimming down of the number of ICE grades. I believe that only three are necessary:

Student/graduate grade Member grade - to include current - members, AMICEs and fellows (no more fellows to be created) Honorary grade for non engineers.

The precise names used for grades is not important. I believe the Royal Institute of British Architects has only one grade of member - why not the ICE?
