ICE has launched clearer and smoother pathways to help our members achieve a professional qualification.
Developed in response to member feedback, these changes will ensure that Engineering Technician (EngTech MICE), Incorporated Engineer (IEng MICE) and Chartered Engineer (CEng MICE) continue to command respect, keeping you ahead of your peers across the globe.
For candidates pursuing IEng MICE or CEng MICE, we will reduce the number of attributes you need to demonstrate from 9 to 7.
Combining current attributes 1 (Knowledge and Understanding of Engineering) and 2 (Technical and Practical Application of Engineering) and allocating attribute 4 (Independent Judgement and Responsibility) across others will provide greater clarity and ease of understanding.

Attribute information for trainees using IPD Online
To help you understand what will change within IPD Online, we have produced a document showing the current attributes and how IPD Online will look with the revised wording for the new attributes, alongside each other. This is supported with commentary on the differences for each qualified grade. IPD Online will be updated accordingly in October 2021.
Please note that Trainees who complete their Training Agreement or Mentor Supported Training before the changes in IPD Online are updated will need to make sure that they meet the requirements for Professional Review when they apply.

Candidates aiming for EngTech MICE will also demonstrate competence against 7 attributes, creating greater symmetry between the grades and providing a seamless path for those who wish to continue to IEng MICE or CEng MICE.
Instead of being assessed against 5 Engineering Council standards that are generic to all engineering disciplines, your assessment will now be tailored to the work of a civil engineering technician.
To ensure members are even better equipped to tackle the climate emergency, the attributes will be improved.
For IEng MICE and CEng MICE attributes, the UN Sustainable Development Goals will be clearly stated.
For EngTech MICE attributes, there will be a focus on applying the principles of sustainable development and consideration of the environmental impact of your work.
We will streamline our processes for IEng MICE and CEng MICE candidates at the Professional Review stage by:

Career Appraisal submissions will align closely with the Professional Review requirements, helping you to progress more quickly to review.
No change for End Point Assessments (EPAs) for Level 3/4. There will be no change to the EPAs at Level 6, but candidates applying for IEng MICE alongside their EPA will need to demonstrate awareness of UN Sustainable Development Goals and will require two sponsors rather than three.
The final Professional Reviews under the current requirements will take place by 30 November 2021. The first reviews following the new requirements will begin from January 2022.
If you plan to sit your Professional Review before the end of 2021, you will continue without any changes applying to IPD Online or the review process.
If you plan to sit your Professional Review from January 2022 onwards, you will follow the new more straightforward approach.
