In 1818 a small group of young engineers met in a London coffee shop and founded the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), the world's first professional engineering body. They had hoped that lots of engineers from different engineering backgrounds would join the institution.
However, civil engineering hadn't really become an official profession yet, and before the 18th century most engineers were in the armed forces. After two years of struggling to attract new members, ICE asked Thomas Telford to become its first President. His appointment in 1820 not only gave ICE a major boost, it also played a huge part in shaping who we are today.
Using his political and social connections, Telford helped to bring in many new members, from the UK and overseas. But his most important role was getting ICE's Royal Charter in 1828.
Please join Mike Chrimes in Reading at Peter Brett offices to hear more about the history of the ICE. Mike worked for the Institution for 37 years until his retirement in 2014. He is an eminent civil engineering historian.
