The ICE South West Bristol & Bath GSA Committee is hosting the next session in a series of informal Attribute Workshop sessions. This online event will focus on Attribute 1:  understanding and practical application of engineering.

The workshop will allow participants to get additional support from local ICE Membership Development Officer, Suzanne Willis (Bristol).  Suzanne will provide an overview of the attribute including recent changes through Membership Streamlining.

Suzanne will be joined by two recently Chartered Civil Engineers, Sam Davy CEng MICE from Wood Group and Allen Ojema CEng MICE MIFireE from Atkins, who will share examples of how they demonstrated their knowledge and experience specific to this attribute on their IPD. Roula Murray EngTech MICE will also discuss how she demonstrated this attribute as part of her technician professional review.

The workshop will be followed by a Q&A session, so bring your questions about the attribute to the event and ask away!

The session is intended to support all those working towards ICE membership, whether you are a student who is just starting out, a technician or an experienced graduate close to sitting your Professional Review.

Please note the workshop will be on Zoom and will be recorded.


Sam Davy

Sam is a Civil Engineer with Wood in Bristol. He graduated from Cardiff University in 2012 and worked for a civil and structural engineering consultancy for 4 years before joining Wood in 2017. Wood is a global leader in consulting and engineering across energy and the built environment where Sam sits in the Sustainable Infrastructure team. He recently gained Chartered civil engineer status and will be talking about how he demonstrated Attribute 1.

Allen Ojema

Allen is a structural engineer with Atkins based in Bristol. His area of practice is in nuclear where he focuses on hazard studies and the design and assessment of structures to resist extreme dynamic loads, such as impact, fire, blast and seismic – often associated with safety and security of many essential sectors, including Automotive, Oil & Gas  and Defence. Allen regularly uses the commercial finite element program ABAQUS, LS Dyna, USFOS, NLFlex and FLACS to conduct such studies. Some recent examples include: material response modelling to various failure modes, impact and blast response of structures and determining the global response of offshore platforms when subject to jet and pool fires. Allen also has experience in  the area of passive fire protection (PFP) where he supported and pushed forward various PFP efforts. Experience in the area include the use and inspection of PFP systems which required visits to site, both onshore and offshore. Allen has recently gained Chartered Engineer status with both the ICE and IFE will be sharing some examples of how he demonstrated Attribute 1.
