Sydney Harbour, Australia

There are around 2,340 ICE members living in Australia and working on a huge range of projects across the country.

At the heart of everything we do in Australia are the five ICE representatives and Local Associations, based in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. They help arrange learned society events, visits to ongoing engineering projects and social activities. They also play a vital role in helping to increase the profile of civil engineering.

There is a Mutual Recognition Agreement between ICE and Engineers Australia which provides a streamlined route to membership for Chartered Civil Engineers and CPEng MIEAust in the civil college.

ICE is an approved assessment entity for Registered Professional Engineer Victoria. Chartered Members of ICE are automatically eligible for registration and can apply >at no cost to them. Those seeking chartership can apply at the same time as sitting their CPR or any time after that, should they pass. Alternatively there is also an option for those not seeking to become an ICE Member to sit a competency assessment for their suitability for the register. Full details are available in the Institution of Civil Engineers Assessment Scheme under the Professional Engineers Registration Act 2019.

As well as the Local Associations, there are several ICE graduate and student groups that support members working towards professional qualification. Professional Review interviews are held annually in Australia, most recently in Sydney and Perth.

Our staff based in Australia support our work in the Australasia region. This includes co-coordinating activities with our members in Australia, supporting our committees and providing membership advice. Staff also support companies running ICE training schemes in the region. For more details please contact us.
