About this event

Bristol City Club is extremely pleased to be hosting Nick Baveystock, ICE Director General, for its January talk. This will be a captivating introduction to 2018, the 200th anniversary of ICE.

ICE was founded on 2nd January 1818 in Kendal’s Coffee House, Fleet Street, London becoming the world’s first professional engineering body. It was an era of formal technical engineering education and self-improvement, which reflected the maturing of the engineering profession.

Nick will share the humble origin and long history of the Institution, looking at why it remains to this day one of the leading engineering bodies in the world, positively influencing the world around us.

As the modern world has evolved, the profession has had to react and respond to these new challenges. Nick will detail some of the challenges facing our profession and how these are being addressed, looking towards the future of civil engineering and what role the industry and the Institution will play.
