About this event


The UK and Nepal have a history that has linked us for over 200 years. The Gurkhas have served in many conflicts for the British Army around the world. The Gurkhas were first enlisted into the British Army in 1815; this was three years before the establishment of the Institution of Civil Engineers on the 2nd January 1818!

The UK has been the home base of the Gurkhas since 1997. Now many people from the Nepalese community have chosen to settle in the UK. Among them, several engineers are working at various engineering organisations in the UK who have formed a society named the Society of Nepalese Engineers UK (SONEUK) .

We are co-hosting this event with the Society of Nepalese Engineers UK (SONEUK) to celebrate the diversity of the civil engineering profession. Patrick Courtney (ICE International Membership Recruitment Manager) will be our host. He will be introducing two interesting talks by Mrs. Sue Threader and Dr. Binod Lal Amatya.

  • Mrs Sue Threader CEng FICE, Bridge Clerk (Chief Executive) for Rochester Bridge Trust, will be presenting on the Rochester Bridge Trust: ’Its history, its purpose and its future’.
  • Dr Binod Lal Amatya CEng MICE from Arcadis will present on ’Tunnelling and the Underground Metro Rail in Kathmandu, Nepal’
