ICE Fellowship is the highest grade of membership and provides recognition for those who have made outstanding contributions to civil engineering and society. It shines a light on you as a civil engineer and your achievements as a leader in the profession, wherever you are in the world.

If you’ve had a leading role in significant engineering work or you can demonstrate Fellowship attributes through technical expertise or inspirational education and training, you could become a Fellow. It is the next step to achieving the ultimate acknowledgement for your knowledge, ability and experience.

How do I apply?

The Fellowship guidance document provides full details on the process and the attributes you will need to demonstrate. Reading this document will highlight what you need to include with your application.

There are also videos that will give you further details on what you need to show in your application.

Alternatively, we can assess your suitability before applying by supplying an up-to-date CV (maximum of 4 pages of A4), containing your personal achievements. It would also be helpful to indicate which of the Fellowship attributes you are considering applying against.

For advice on applying, or to have a preliminary assessment, please contact your Regional Director or International contact.

How much does it cost?

You will pay a non-refundable fee when you apply. When you have been awarded Fellowship, you just need to continue to pay an annual membership fee to enjoy the benefits of being an ICE Fellow. Details on the cost are available on our fees page.
