Technicians: show your status with MICE letters
As a technician member of ICE you can now use the MICE designation. This will complement registration with the Engineering Council as EngTech.
As an example, Engineering Technician Mary Smith's post-nominal letters have changed from 'Mary Smith EngTech TMICE' to 'Mary Smith EngTech MICE'.
What does this mean for other ICE members?
There is no change in post-nominal letters for other grades of membership. Chartered and incorporated members continue to use MICE, along with their Engineering Council qualification (IEng or CEng).
For example, Chartered Civil Engineer John Smith would continue to use 'John Smith CEng MICE' on his business card.
The move makes MICE the marque of a qualified civil engineering professional.
MICE alongside whichever title you have gained – EngTech, IEng, or CEng – reflects your standing as a professionally registered civil engineer or technician. It assures your employer, colleagues, customers and society that you meet the internationally recognised standards of competence and commitment relevant to civil engineering.
Using your post-nominal letters wherever appropriate – e.g. on business cards or email signatures – is a demonstration of your professional status. Doing so helps you stand apart from those who are not professionally qualified and shows your commitment to high professional standards.
Other changes to ICE's Royal Charter, By-laws, Admission and Disciplinary Regulations
Members also voted on a number of other resolutions as part of ICE's 2015 Council Ballot.
The approved changes to the Admission and Disciplinary Regulations came into effect when the ballot closed on the 14 July 2015. Changes to the by-laws were subject to Privy Council approval and these have now also been ratified.
