ICE's media report coveirng January - March 2011 is now available
ICE worked with the Olympic Delivery Authority to help ensure that the lessons learned from the 2012 Olympics would be captured and passed on.
Associated Societies of the ICE are crucial to the Institution's 'learned society' function, contributing to our knowledge base across a range of specialist areas.
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is the process of generating and managing information about a building during its entire life cycle.
Civil engineers work to resolve the challanges presented by the need to deliver long term energy supplies that are clean and safe.
Civil engineers supply sustainable methods for construction to protect, preserve and improve our quality of life and the environment around us.
Precise mapping and planning is a critical part of a project. Engineers utilise computerised tools and techniques to ensure structures are built to scale.
A structure's safety depends on the stability of its foundations. Ground engineers manage the uncertainties that lay below the earth's surface.
Compliance protects the safety of workers and public. Civil engineers’ values ensure that health and safety is at the heart of their work.
Engineering history illuminates the development of civilisation through the study of the ideas and techniques of the past.
Engineers work to provide and develop information systems to help address current issues, future trends and emerging technologies
Innovation is key to a competitive construction industry. ICE encourages this by encouraging relationships across government, industry and academia.
Civil engineers play a crucial role in meeting development goals by delivering sustainable infrastructure and helping deliver economic growth.
ICE aims to set standards, and encourage best practice regarding contracts, procurement and the resolution of multi-party disputes across industry.
Good management is vital for the effective delivery of projects. This includes planning and design processes through to the construction phase.
Maritime engineers provide solutions to problems such as coastal erosion, flooding and sea level rise, as well as delivering infrastructure such as ports and harbours.
Municipal engineers help improve the quality of life of communities through the design and construction of services such as streets, parks and public works.
Responsibility for Continuing Professional Development is increasingly focused on individuals as they recognise and fulfill their obligation as members of ICE
Engineers are key in ensuring the appearance and safety of the built environment, responsible for the design and durability of structures.
Engineers are responsible for planning, constructing and maintaining the key infrastructure that allows our global travel opportunities.
Engineers manage waste by reusing and processing materials, producing alternative sources of energy, and disposing of residual wastes.
From capturing, treating and distributing water, engineers plan, develop and manage our water resources to meet society's needs.
This film highlights and celebrates the role of civil engineers in delivering the Olympic Park and the infrastructure around it – on time, safely and on budget.
The film was created by ICE London as part of ICE’s contribution to the 2012 Learning Legacy.
