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.

ICE London has a wide range of materials for people living in the region and working with local schools and colleges.

Looking for inspiring resources to use in school?

We have a comprehensive range of resources aimed at all student ages to help you show and explain what civil engineering is, why it's important and what you need to do to become a civil engineer.

These activities have been designed to be done in the home using house-hold items for ages 4 upwards, with add-on challenges for 11-16s and 16-18s. Some parental supervision required.

So, if you want an activity for a class or club - something hands-on, that's tried and tested – you'll find it here.

Tomorrow's Engineers

In your region

ICE Ambassadors visit schools across the region to help young people learn about civil engineering.

It aims to inspire the civil engineers of tomorrow by organising a range of challenging, exciting and practical activities.

Our Ambassadors also organise a range of other schools events - like careers days and presentations - to get young people interested in the profession and to inspire the next generation of civil engineers.

Want to get involved?

ICE London is always looking for more ambassadors, and to visit new schools.

If you'd like to become an ambassador, or need help organising an engineering event at your school, then please get in touch with us.

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.
