EngTech FICE making a difference, online

About this event

Technicians are capable of applying proven techniques and procedures to resolve practical engineering problems. To be professionally recognised as EngTech MICE individuals must demonstrate the required professional competencies and commitment. These standards are set out by the Engineering Council and the Institution of Civil Engineers.

For a long time, the profile of the grade of EngTech MICE has been recognised across the civil engineering industry. We have Technician members who joined the ICE in the 1980s as Technician members and are still Technician members today. Over the last 5 years, there has been a significant surge in interest from individuals and companies seeking professional recognition. This has been partly driven by the Trail Blazer Apprenticeships which burst onto the industry in 2013 and has continued with the new End Point Assessment Apprentice style qualifications. It is also partly a result of a resurgence in senior technicians gaining recognition of their hard-won skills and capabilities.

Inevitably this is leading to an increase in mature competent, capable Technicians. People who hold influential professional positions. People who are responsible for promoting, planning, designing, constructing, maintaining or managing important engineering work. People who are not just capable of applying proven techniques and procedures to resolve practical engineering problems but capable of far more. People with this level of success are applying for recognition at the highest level as ICE Fellows. Fellows are senior professionals who, as well as being successful in their career make a major contribution to the industry.

This event we will hosted by a past ICE President Dr Jean Venables CBE FREng FICE. It will be celebrating the achievements of two unique career Technicians who have achieved the highest honour of being recognised as Technician Fellows of the ICE:

Tim Brownbridge EngTech FICE – Academy Manager at Bam Nuttall.

Bryan Williams EngTEch FICE – Works Superintendent at Costain Group plc.
