Municipal Engineering covers all facets of Civil Engineering but is carried out within the public sector for a municipal, or local, authority.
Municipal Group Scotland aims to improve the understanding of the aspects of public sector engineering and to encourage a wider understanding of the strategic impacts of civil engineering procurement and delivery of efficient local services.
The Committee work to support municipal engineers in their understanding of the socio-economic context of their work and to share knowledge and influence as it relates to public sector engineering, while promoting a broad understanding of government policies as they relate to the public realm. This will be achieved by providing conferences and seminars focusing on municipal engineering.
The Committee will also work towards developing a contact network with government, civil service, local government associations and kindred associations and seek to raise awareness of municipal engineering throughout Scotland.
Membership of the Municipal Group is open to all professionals who are involved in public service delivery and is free of charge to those who also hold any grade of membership of the ICE whether employed by the public sector or not.
