Institution of Civil Engineers Visits University

News - Civil ICE Visit

Last week the Institution of Civil Engineers  (ICE) visited the School of Engineering to gain an insight into the University’s civil engineering courses, and the flexible study options available for those working in the industry.

All of the civil engineering courses at the University have been designed and developed in consultation with professional bodies, and the University is the only HE Institution that offers a combined work and study route at all three levels of professional qualification.  Dependant on their chosen level of study, students can work towards Engineering Technician (Eng Tech), Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.

ICE is a professional body who support civil engineers and technicians by awarding professional qualifications, ensuring they work to high standards, and helping them to develop their careers. The visit from the ICE last week provided the opportunity for the Institution to see first-hand the embedded pathways and continued professional development opportunities available to students.

Nick Baveystock, Director General and Secretary of ICE, said, “I cannot overstate the importance of a philosophy that allows individuals to enter academic learning at any stage, with an opportunity to exit at an appropriate level commensurate with their abilities.”

Dr Paul Davies, Head of Civil Engineering, added, “The University works closely with the Institution of Civil Engineers to ensure our graduates are well placed to progress and develop in the profession. With a strong emphasis on providing flexible, professionally-linked study options for those working in the industry, our courses provide an ideal pathway to the various levels of professional qualifications.”
