New online career advice and guidance launched

We have revamped our careers advice to encourage young people into a career in civil engineering.

ICE has launched new and improved website information to give young people, teachers and parents the advice they need to start a career in civil engineering.

It can be found at and is part of our revamped website section that answers the question, What is civil engineering?

As well as advice on all routes into civil engineering our new web pages also host a wealth of education resources. If you are going into schools or colleges you can access useful presentations, print and fun activities to run.

We've added new activity packs, links to loads more useful resources online and helpful guidance for working with children and young people.

The new web section also has brilliant in-depth case studies of civil engineering projects and also the people behind them. Readers can search by project type or career stage to help find inspiration and grow their understanding of the diverse range of career paths.

Help us spread the word

Please do pass on the link to our new education site to friends and family who may be interested, especially parents, grandparents and teachers.

We're always interested to hear if you've got a good idea for new content to help us inspire young people. It could be a project or person to feature in the case studies, or something fun for a new schools activity pack. Get in touch at [email protected]
