ICE Wales Cymru supports activities that help get young people interested in civil engineering.
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.

Need help planning your lessons? Thinking about visiting a school?
We have a range of resources for teachers and those wanting to visit schools that help explain the role of civil engineering and inspire young learners.
ICE visits schools across Wales to give young people the chance to build miniature version of the Second Severn Crossing.
Using our model cable-stayed bridges, children experience bridge building at first-hand, while wearing hard hats, high-vis vests, gloves and goggles. After the bridges have been built, each child gets the chance to walk across and test their engineering skills.
The activity is mainly aimed at primary schools, but we can also arrange visits to secondary schools. Each bridge-building session is presented by an engineer, with support from ICE 'construction ambassadors'. Bridge to Schools is organised in partnership with ConstructionSkills Wales, Careers Wales and Mid Glamorgan Education Business Partnership.
To find out more or to arrange a visit to your school, please download the Bridge to Schools leaflet.
This is an engineering competition for secondary school pupils. The aim of the scheme is to encourage Year 9 (14 year old) students in South Wales to consider a career in engineering.
It's run by the ICE Wales Cymru Graduates and Students Committee, with sponsorship from local engineering companies. The scheme is run in conjunction with Tomorrow's Engineers Week.
This activity promotes engineering, construction, manufacturing and technology careers for students aged over 16. ICE Wales Cymru North Wales Branch helps organise the event.
If you'd like to find out more about these activities, please contact Keith Jones, Director of ICE Wales Cymru, on 029 2063 0561 or email [email protected]
If you think you could help inspire the next generation of engineers, then we want to hear from you!
We're always on the look out for new Ambassadors to visit schools and help enthuse children across the region.

The Millennium Stadium in Cardiff is the national stadium of Wales. It's the home of the Wales national rugby union team and the Wales national football team also plays matches there. Initially built to host the 1999 Rugby World Cup, it's gone on to stage many other large-scale events, such as the Tsunami Relief concert, the Super Special Stage of Wales Rally Great Britain, the Speedway Grand Prix of Great Britain, and numerous music concerts.
The Millennium Stadium is owned by Millennium Stadium plc which is a subsidiary company of the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU). The stadium was designed by a team led by architects Bligh Lobb Sports Architecture. WS Atkins were the structural engineers, and the building contractor was Laing. The total construction cost of the stadium was £121 million of which the Millennium Commission funded £46 million.
The stadium opened in June 1999, and the first major event to be held was an international rugby union match on 26 June 1999, when Wales beat South Africa in a friendly by 29–19, in front of a test crowd of 29,000. With total seating capacity of 74,500, it's the third largest stadium in the Six Nations Championship behind the Stade de France and Twickenham, which is the largest. It's also the second largest stadium in the world with a fully retractable roof, and was only the second stadium in Europe to have this feature.

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.
Please see the list below for accredited centres offering engineering degree courses in the region.
If you're already studying a civil engineering course, then you could be eligible for our FREE student membership.
Becoming a member of ICE offers you a wealth of benefits, from access to free resources like our Ask Brunel service (get an answer to any civil engineering question!), to a free subscription to New Civil Engineer (NCE) magazine.
