Committees

ICE East Midland's various committees and panels bring together like-minded people and give members the opportunity to increase their knowledge, get advice, and raise the profile and standard of civil engineering.

Regional committees and branches

The region is made up of the East Midlands Regional Committee, Branch Committees and the East Midlands Graduates and Students Committee. Committee members are volunteers and come from a range of backgrounds within the civil engineering profession. Find out more about the committees and groups, including who's involved and how you can get in touch.
