Education

If you're thinking about a career in civil engineering, or would like to find out more about it, ICE is here to help.

We can give advice and guidance if you're wondering what subjects to study at school, college or university.

We also provide resources and support for teachers, and other people looking to promote civil engineering.

Our volunteers are passionate about our industry and want to inspire the next generation of civil engineers. They visit schools to give careers advice and support engineering-themed activities for young people.

Looking for inspiring resources to use in school?

We have a range of multimedia resources for teachers, careers advisers, parents, and volunteer ICE ambassadors.

So if you want an activity for a class or club – something hands-on, that's tried and tested – you'll find it here. We also have PowerPoint presentations, videos, careers information and useful links to lots more.

Education & resources

What do you need to do to become a civil engineer?

If you're interested in a university or college course in civil engineering, it's important to make sure that the course you choose is 'accredited'. This means that it meets the Engineering Council's quality and curriculum standards.

Having accredited academic qualifications will make it easier for you to become professionally qualified as a chartered engineer (CEng), incorporated engineer (IEng), or engineering technician (EngTech).

Use our course search to find accredited courses throughout the UK.
