Volunteers for ICE Further Learning Exam pilot in Hong Kong needed

ICE is inviting volunteer candidates to pilot the institution’s Further Learning Exam in Hong Kong on 4 October 2021.

This follows a successful first pilot which ran in the UK in 2019, with an 82% pass rate.

The ICE exam pilot is being offered free of charge to candidates, representing an estimated saving of over £1,500. Candidates will enjoy access to online training material, covering the entire syllabus for the exam, developed by ICE Training.

Places are limited to a maximum of 50 candidates.

Why volunteer?

The ICE exam pilot aims to develop a new further learning option for engineers who want to become chartered engineers (CEng MICE). Candidates must have:

  • Incorporated Members (IEng MICE) or Graduate members (GMICE) who hold an accredited BEng (Hons) degree or equivalent assessed qualification.
  • Two years (minimum) of practical experience in the civil engineering industry.

Qualifying via the exam

Becoming professionally qualified requires a combination of academic achievements, work experience - also called Initial Professional Development (IPD), and an assessment - the Professional Review.

The academic qualifications usually required for CEng MICE are at master's level, either an MEng degree or an MSc with an accredited bachelor's degree.

Passing the Further Learning Exam offers an alternative way to meet the academic requirements to become CEng MICE - if candidates hold a BEng (Hons) degree or equivalent - instead of opting for the master's degree option. Candidates would then complete their Initial Professional Development (IPD) and progress to Professional Review.

To register as a candidate, candidates are asked to email [email protected]quoting their membership number. ICE will then verify applicants’ eligibility and send more background information about the ICE exam.

Spaces are limited. We expect strong demand so please apply as soon as possible.
