  • Graduate and Students

    The committee is run by volunteers who organise social and continuing professional development events throughout the year. This provides graduate and student members with the opportunity to share best practice, find out about the latest research and industry developments, and network with other civil engineers.

    Although some members hold elected roles, the committee is very open. It welcomes any ICE graduate or student member who wants to participate, whether you're looking to attend one meeting a year or come along every month. You don't need to have an formal role - every member of the committee can contribute to the work it does.
