ICE South West

Committees

ICE South West's regional committee, early careers network and city clubs plan and organise how we support and share knowledge with ICE members in the region.

Regional committee and branches

Our work in the South West is led by the regional committee. They are all volunteers from a range of backgrounds within the civil engineering profession.

Some areas also have a group dedicated to those at the early stages of their career in civil engineering.  

Find out who's who and how you can get involved.

The ICE South West regional committee is made up of volunteer members from across the region, representing a wider range of experience and interests. The committee works with regional staff to support the ICE's overall aims and priorities and represents ICE members in the region.
