Debabrata Paul CEng MICE

Science and its application have fascinated me since I was a child. I even built a short gravel road and septic tank for our home which was not served by public works when I was still in junior school.

Currently, I’m based in India with WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff and lead a design delivery team of 30-plus engineers and technicians working to support infrastructure projects in the UK.

I have enjoyed a 20 year career as a civil engineer in the transport sector, working around the world on a range of projects from road schemes, motorways, major interchanges to light rail projects.

The most challenging were the designs of Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route in the UK as road design engineer, and Western Freeway Sea Link to provide a link between Worli and Haji Ali along the western sea-coast of Mumbai, India as deputy project manager. The latter was particularly challenging with the involvement of multiple stakeholders including several government agencies, developers, local and international contractors and citizen groups.

CEng MICE definitely gave me a competitive edge as the Institution of Civil Engineers is internationally recognised. Being a Chartered Member is a great honour, and gives me a qualification that is greatly valued and respected wherever I go.

Having achieved CEng MICE, I now support and mentor young engineers as a supervising civil engineer for ICE, a role I thoroughly enjoy. In future, I hope to continue to work on challenging engineering projects and I also aspire to be an ICE Fellow at some point.
