If you're thinking about a career in civil engineering, or would like to find out more about it, ICE is here to help.
We can give advice and guidance if you're wondering what subjects to study at school, college or university.
We also provide resources and support for teachers, and other people looking to promote civil engineering.
ICE Northern Ireland has a wide range of materials for people living in the region and working with local schools and colleges.
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.
ICE also works with Tomorrow's Engineers, which provides clear information on careers in engineering.
The Tomorrow's Engineers careers materials:
Bridges to Schools - Our most popular Pre-19 activity is aimed at primary school children. Our Bridges Coordinator and ICE Ambassadors bring a flat-packed 16 metre long bridge to around one school each month. Groups of children are given the opportunity to wear high viz jackets and hard hats to assemble the bridge and walk over it!
Careers events - ICE Ambassadors attend around 20 careers events each year, speaking to pupils in a range of settings; mock interviews, information stands, or presentations to a whole year group.
If you're a teacher and you'd like us to come to your school, you should contact the Northern Ireland team.
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.
Find our more about some of the activities we've carried out in the region. If you've got any questions, or are interested in running an event then please contact us.
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.
ICE Northern Ireland has strong links with higher education institution in the region that offers accredited engineering courses.
It's Graduates & Students Committee organises a wide range of events - many of which are free - with universities and colleges to encourage students to join in, and to develop their knowledge and skills.
