The technician scholarship, which forms part of the ICE’s Queen’s Jubilee Scholarship Trust (QUEST), recognises ability and potential together with a financial boost of up to £1000.

All scholars are working towards professional qualification as either Engineering Technician (EngTech MICE) or Incorporated Engineer (IEng MICE).

Dr Janet Young, ICE director general, met with some of the new scholars during a visit to the North West and commented:

“The QUEST scholars are a testament to the passion and creativity of the next generation of civil engineers, and I congratulate them on their achievements.

“I look forward to seeing how they use their scholarships to further their careers and make their mark on the profession, helping to improve people’s lives, and create a better future for society.”

About the ICE QUEST programme

The ICE QUEST programme was set up in 1977 to encourage and support education in civil engineering. Over the years it has supported thousands of people in their civil engineering career.

There are QUEST scholarships supporting members and students to learn at all stages of their career. Applications are currently open for the ICE QUEST undergraduate scheme.

The next round of QUEST Technician applications opens in autumn 2023.
