Overview

Welcome to the monthly ICE London Graduates and Students Committee!

The monthly meeting is open to all students, graduates and technicians, from all varying levels, where we discuss future events, network and take some time out of our hectic civil engineering lives to de-stress with each other.

The purpose of the ICE G&S Committee is to organise events, courses, competitions, and various activities to help members develop their careers, get support, and to meet and socials with other graduates, students and technicians.

There is ample opportunity for anyone new to contribute and take part in the committee's activities, despite the Committee roles being filled for the upcoming year after our Annual AGM.

If you have any questions, please contact us.
