If you are a committed civil engineering student, or just starting out in industry then ICE wants to help you through your studies and beyond. Joining ICE as a student member and later converting to a graduate member helps you to build your future in civil engineering with ICE supporting you along the way. After so much hard work during college, you are ready to start your first engineering job. Congratulations! This is an exciting time, but there are a lot of new things coming at you all at once which can be daunting. Here are some basics (various disciplines) for starting your career on the right foot. You may already know some of these, but it’s a good REFRESHER and a guide for improvement – THURSDAY LECTURE SERIES will focus on exactly that. 

Workshop 3 – Water - An Intro

This lecture will cover a short introduction to the Water Industry and the role of the civil engineer from a consulting engineer’s perspective. It will present the types of projects involved and cover some of the main engineering challenges facing the global water industry. It will offer some practical guidance to young engineers joining the profession in terms of what to expect, the skills to develop, how to manage their careers in the first 2-3 years and make a good start to their ICE IPD process.


Moderated by ICE Malaysia Committee.
