What our members say

I plan to become chartered with ICE and am currently on a training scheme at work. It’s good to know that my employer recognises how important professional qualification is. It shows that you're a well-rounded engineer because it needs technical, commercial and legal knowledge. You also need an understanding of the health and safety and sustainability parts of your work.

I joined ICE because I wanted international professional recognition. Being a graduate member gives me the opportunity to be mentored so I can qualify as an MICE member. It also gives me a sense of belonging to a community of engineers across the world.
