Civil Engineers Club

The Civil Engineers’ Club started in 1979 and is run by a committee of volunteers. All present and past members of the Institution of Civil Engineers are eligible to join. The annual subscription is £10 with free membership for Student members and all retired ex-ICE members. Our current Chair is Professor Tim Broyd, former ICE President.

The Club promotes and supports sporting and social activities for Civil Engineers throughout the UK. The Club’s activities are likely to be of interest to families and friends and provide opportunities for members to maintain contact with colleagues in an informal context. We do not compete with the regions and their own events. The activities include Contract Bridge, Golf (all regions compete for the Telford Trophy), Model Engineering, Painting, Sailing, Singing and Walking.

For more details on the club please see our Specialist Knowledge Societies page.
