ICE North East also gives and supports a number of awards that showcase the individual expertise and excellence of members. Find out more about the awards and how you can enter.
The ICE Communications Competition is open to ICE graduate and student members, who have no more than seven years' industry experience.
If you're working towards technician membership you can also enter the competition, provided you have no more than ten years' industry experience.
The competition gives young engineers the opportunity to develop their communications skills. It involves a role-play public consultation based around mock engineering scheme proposals.
You can find out more on the main Communications Competition page.
The winning team at the North East regional round will receive £250.
Submit your entry documents along with a copy of the North East entry form and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
2017 North East winners MWH team: Fritha Bevin-McCrimmon, Ewan Miller and Matthew Foster along with the competition judges.
ICE Yorkshire & Humber team from Mott MacDonald won the 2016 Graduate and Student Communications Competition with their presentation on the Ballygrand City Arterial Route Upgrade. The chair of the judging panel, ICE Vice President, Zara Lamont, said: “It was a close call between the teams and the deciding factor came down to how well the teams answered the questions from the audience. ICE Yorkshire and Humber team did exceptionally well and answered all the questions in an empathic and professional way.”
This annual competition, formerly known as the Papers Competition, promotes and rewards excellent communication of civil engineering issues and ideas.
The North East regional heat is open to all current ICE graduate and student members who live, work or study in the region.
Graduate and student members can submit papers on any areas of engineering design, research or practice. Entries can be adapted from undergraduate research papers, university projects, professional development or professional review reports. It's preferable for papers to be based on work done by the applicant, or that they were involved in.
The judging panel is made up of experts from across the region with wide experience and knowledge.
The judges will select from the entries submitted and finalists will be invited to submit their full paper and to present it at the regional final in Newcastle.
The regional winner may be shortlisted for the national final where a top prize of £1,500 and an Institution Medal can be won.

The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) Student Prize is an annual award for undergraduates who have performed the best in the last two years of their JBM-accredited civil engineering degree course.
The prize is awarded on the recommendation of the course leaders or the appropriate staff members in consultation with the Head of Civil Engineering at each awarding university.
The winner receives £250 and can be presented with the award at the Durham University Graduation Ceremony.
Nomination citation: Andrew has demonstrated excellent academic performance throughout his course in MEng in General Engineering (Civil stream), both in design projects and examinations. He is now graduating with an overall mark well into the first-class category. Moreover, Andrew is the top student of the Civil Engineering cohort, based on his mark weighed arithmetic average.
Course: MEng General Engineering (Civil stream)
The winner receives £250 and can be presented with the award at the Newcastle University Graduation Ceremony.
Nomination citation: Louise has been awarded a first class degree. She achieved the highest overall mark in her cohort and the highest marks across her structural engineering specialist modules. The vast majority of her marks in both examinations and coursework have been first class, including many above 80% and some above 90%. She achieved a first class mark (83%) in her Individual Research Project (final year) and in her Sustainable Engineering Systems Design Project (penultimate year).
Louise and also took part in our Global Engineering: A Design and Build Challenge module, involving the design and construction of a gravity water system in rural Borneo, again achieving a first class mark. Louise has completed industrial summer placements and has been a Student Representative both within and beyond the School and was recognized for this with a University award. As Degree Programme Director, I strongly support Louise's nomination for this ICE award.
Course: MEng Civil and Structural Engineering.
The winner receives £250 and can be presented with the award at the Teesside University Graduation Ceremony.
Programme Leader Barry Walmsley said: 'Jonny's academic performance has been highly creditable throughout his studies at Teesside University. He has shown a consistently strong examination performance in technical subjects, and also submitted typically impressive coursework for 'Structural Design' achieving a mark of 84%. He was a student prizewinner for his placement year performance after his second year of studies. Jonny is highly deserving of the ICE student prize'
Course: BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering.
The winner receives £250 and can be presented with the award at the Northumbria University Graduation Ceremony.
Nomination citation: For his individual research project, Tom has undertaken an ambitious and innovative investigation into cliff erosion threats affecting a key coastal route in the northeast. He utilised cutting edge photogrammetric techniques, which had only been introduced (and not applied) in lectures. Furthermore, Tom developed the technique for abrasive as well as rockfall erosion with a new microscopic approach.
Undertaking this multi-resolution, three-dimensional survey and change detection approach, in a challenging coastal environment pushed Tom to go beyond the time and effort commonly invested in such projects and to learn new data collection and processing approaches. The project displayed excellent and considered reasoning behind the adopted approach and a clear awareness of the limitations involved and suitable precautions to take to improve and optimise the data. The results are well presented and there are excellent attempts to link the findings with wider literature and to process, analyse and critique the data.
