ICE Scotland works to help inspire young people and get them interested in a career in civil engineering. We offer a range of educational activities for schools and resources for careers events.
Find out more about the activities we provide and how you can get involved.
We have a range of multimedia resources for teachers, careers advisers, parents, and volunteer ICE ambassadors.
So if you want an activity for a class or club – something hands-on, that's tried and tested – you'll find it here. We also have PowerPoint presentations, videos, careers information and useful links to lots more.

Whilst we do our best to accommodate all requests, activities are dependent upon volunteers being available. If you'd like more information or want to book an activity then please contact us.
Bridges to Schools is a hands-on activity which enables pupils to build a 12m long cable stayed bridge. Having assembled the bridge they then walk across it before deconstructing it, learning about bridges, teamwork and civil engineering as they go.
The Bridge model is available for visits of 2-4 days. Schools often group together and arrange for one school to host the Bridge while pupils from other local schools come to the host school for the experience.
RREC is ideally suited to Curriculum for Excellence as an interdisciplinary project which challenges pupils to consider the importance of infrastructure to their every day life.
This online engineering challenge allows students to design and load-test a bridge using a computer model.
An excellent learning tool, it introduces young people to civil engineering and applies a practical element to maths and science teaching. Interested Schools should download the software and register using the content code ICES.
ICE Scotland's Engineering the Commonwealth Games map and teaching resource tells the story of the engineering behind the Commonwealth Games. It includes useful venue information and activities relevant to STEM subjects and geography and history, as well as careers information for civil engineering. The resource highlights some of the sustainability challenges our cities face through consideration of key themes such as water, waste, energy and transport and encourages learners to think about the day to day infrastructure we take for granted in the developed world.

The Queensferry Crossing is Scotland’s biggest transport infrastructure project in a generation and will safeguard and improve a vital connection in the country's transport network. A new 1.7 mile (2.7km) bridge across the Firth of Forth is the most eye-catching element but the scheme also involves major improvements to the road network in the east of Scotland.
It will change the way people travel between Edinburgh and Fife and beyond by increasing reliability, improving journey times, easing congestion and offering better connections. The project uses innovative methods and cutting-edge technology and materials to pioneer techniques in civil engineering and construction.
The existing Forth Road Bridge will be maintained as a dedicated public transport corridor for buses, pedestrians and cyclists. By maximising the use of the existing road network, the FRC’s connecting roads will result in less impact on the environment, properties and communities. The scheme is on track for completion in 2016.

If you're interested in a university or college course in civil engineering, it's important to make sure that the course you choose is 'accredited'. This means that it meets the Engineering Council's quality and curriculum standards.
Having accredited academic qualifications will make it easier for you to become professionally qualified as a chartered engineer (CEng), incorporated engineer (IEng), or engineering technician (EngTech). Use our course search to find accredited courses throughout the UK.
ICE Scotland has strong links with further and higher education institutions that offer accredited engineering courses. Our Graduate and Student Committees across Scotland organise a wide range of events - many of which are free - to encourage students to join in, and to develop their knowledge and skills. ICE Scotland has close ties with:
Is the cost of a student loan preventing you from studying civil engineering? Why not apply for an ICE Scotland grant.
You could get £4,000 a year for four years to study civil engineering at a college or university, full or part time from September/October 2016 onwards.
