I was proud to be accepted into the Institution as a Chartered Civil Engineer in June 2015. I chose to take the progressive route to Chartership and effectively 'split the work in two'. This meant I had previously become an Incorporated Engineer in 2013, and took the Chartered Proffessional Review Progressive, to then become fully Chartered.
Many people are unfamiliar with the progressive route. If you would like me to explain more, please get in touch on the contact page.
I am also a member of the Railway Civil Engineers Association, an associated society of the Institution of Civil Engineers.
Shaping the world
I am pleased to be supporting Shaping the World. This inspiring initiative will see the development of pioneering engineering projects worldwide which will provide solutions to global challenges such as access to water, sanitation, energy and infrastructure.
On October 9th I attended the Shaping the World dinner at the Institution of Civil Engineers, attended by HRH Princess Royal, Appeal Patron and Honorary Fellow of the Institution of Civil Engineers
Graduate and students committee
I participated in the ICE North West Graduates and Students Committeefor two years, during which I undertook two roles. Firstly as the Presidents Visit Co-ordinator, I organised an engineering themed evening of entertainment for Professor Paul Jowittduring his year in office. The successful event was attended by over 70 people and I was subsequently recognised by Professor Jowett with the presentation of an award at the 2010 Regional Awards Dinner.
I was later elected as Vice Chair and supported the Chair in the running of the Graduates and Students Committee.
During my time on the North West Graduates and Students Committee, I presented to theNorth West ICE Fellows forum on the topic of graduate unemploymentwithin the industry. At that time, in 2010, the recession was gripping many organisations resulting in fewer graduate jobs. Many new civil engineering graduates were seeking jobs elsewhere, generating concern within the industry of a skills shortage.
I addressed the issue and suggested ways in which the ICE could support those struggling to find a job so that they did not become disengaged with civil engineering. The forum was attended by North West Fellow, and incoming president Richard Coackley,who invited a debate on the topic, thus feeding into his presidential agenda for the coming year.

The fully booked event
The initiative is aiming to raise £5m, helping to transform the ICE headquarters at One Great George Street into a centre of excellence and hub of knowledge, which will inspire the next generation of civil engineers.
