ICE's 15 expert panels promote best practice and contribute to technical progress in civil engineering. This often involves liaising with different parts of the industry.
From time to time, we also bring members together to look at particular issues. So even if you can't commit to one of our regular groups, you could still make an important contribution.
Panels monitor trends and innovation in the industry, so we can publish advice on the challenges that decision-makers and civil engineers must tackle. To do this, our expert panels produce reports, host events and conferences, and carry out consultations.
How you can help
By joining one of our knowledge groups you can:
- Be part of special ICE projects and publications which inform and influence industry (like our annual State of the Nation report)
- Make yourself known to other professionals and so strengthen your profile
- Meet and share ideas or experiences with other engineers working in your field
You can get involved in two ways: by joining a panel, or by contributing to one-off projects. Becoming part of ICE knowledge groups is a formal process which may depend on vacancies.
Join a panel
Panels are made up of 8-12 members who each serve for three years. Groups meet four times a year and you can attend in person or remotely.
