What does the Transport Panel do?

The panel provides the technical expertise and knowledge to support ICE activity in the transport sector, by working with ICE staff to deliver a wealth of engineering knowledge. This includes:

  • Influencing ICE's policy statements in areas such as rail, roads, aviation, freight, cycling and walking
  • Helping to build capacity and skills
  • Producing research and best practice guidance for engineers in the sector
  • Hosting events and networking opportunities

The panel meets several times each year in the UK, and creates specialist sub-groups to undertake specific projects on behalf of ICE.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for chartered civil engineers (CEng) with strong experience and knowledge of working on infrastructure projects in the Transport sector.

We would be particularly interested to receive applications from professionals specialising in:

  • Active travel
  • Roads and highways
  • Integrated transport planning and devolution
  • Rail systems engineering

If you are a specialist another area of the transport sector, we would still be pleased to hear from you.

Graduates and technicians welcome

As well as chartered civil engineers, we would also be keen to receive interest from graduate engineers and engineering technicians, where two vacancies exist for this grade of ICE membership.

Increasing diversity

The panel, and ICE as a whole, is currently underrepresented by women. We want to change this!

We recognise the value that diversity brings in the collective creation and dissemination of knowledge and strongly encourage applications to join the panel from female professionals.

How do I apply?

To register your interest to join the panel, you can submit a copy of your current CV accompanied by a brief covering letter by 31 October 2015, answering these two questions:

  • What work should ICE produce that would be of most benefit to engineers working in the transport sector?
  • How could your knowledge, skills and experience help with such an initiative?
