Life is so busy that there is rarely time to stop and reflect, acknowledge or celebrate achievements – the application process provided an opportunity to take time to look back and to look forward.
Applying to become a Fellow allowed me to reflect on my career achievements and how much I have accomplished. I want to be a positive role model to future female engineers.
I didn’t expect to be where I am today, but I'm proud to say that I took the opportunities I was given. This helped me to move up to a role with a relatively high level of responsibility.
I'm really glad that I followed my dream to become a professionally qualified civil engineer.
ICE membership has helped me to build up a network of engineering contacts, and as an ICE QUEST scholar, I’ve gained really useful work experience through summer placements.
Qualifying as a technician member made me very proud and has opened new doors. It has helped me progress to an engineer role, which means I have more responsibilities and manage projects.
CEng MICE definitely gives me a competitive edge as it is internationally recognised. It is a great honour, and is a qualification that is greatly valued and respected wherever I go.
My ICE membership has opened doors for me and as it’s free for students there’s really no reason not to be a member!
