Skills analysis tool launches on ICE Learning Hub

A new online tool from ICE now enables members to self-assess their skills and identify areas for development.

Found on the ICE Learning Hub, an exclusive member benefit, the Skills Analysis Tool allows members to evaluate themselves against 29 different work-based skills.

Members can then access relevant learning content to improve areas of their choosing.

Nathan Baker, ICE Director of Engineering Knowledge, said: “As part of ICE’s ongoing commitment to members’ lifelong learning and continuous professional development, we have launched the Skills Analysis Tool to help members to identify their own training needs and take control of their future career development.

“Our aim is to support a deeper understanding of civil engineering and the skills required for professional practice.”

The new tool has launched alongside a range of new learning programmes for February, with a focus on sustainability.

Green ports

This programme is for built environment professionals who want to know about current developments that increase the environmental sustainability of ports, whether in terms of the functions of their structures or their operations.

The drivers of sustainable development and the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Architectural and engineering design now needs to produce built environments that can adapt to a changing, and sometimes uncertain, future. This will involve meeting the challenges of climate change, urbanisation, increasing population, increasing demand for resources, and technological change.

This programme will provide built environment professionals with an overview of the drivers towards sustainable development and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. A parallel programme ‘Architectural and engineering methods and skills for sustainable development’ is also available.

Energy economics

This programme is for engineers who want to know more about the economics affecting the UK energy sector. It examines energy policy effects on future engineers, the factors affecting funding infrastructure, and the current energy support landscape encouraging low carbon energy generation.

How does Britain dispose of its nuclear waste?

This programme provides an overview of the processes and challenges of geological disposal of nuclear waste. It also reviews infamous nuclear disasters and looks at the potential implications these accidents have for site management.

Intelligent Assets for Tomorrow’s Transport Infrastructure

How is digital technology transforming the way we understand and manage infrastructure assets? In this programme, the Professor of Industrial Information Engineering at Cambridge Centre for Smart Infrastructure & Construction, Duncan McFarlane, explains the vision for intelligent infrastructural asset management and the developments towards more intelligent infrastructural assets.
