The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) is a professional membership body that government and industry listen to while providing unrivalled support to our 92,000 civil engineer members.

As well as supporting our members to become qualified, we also encourage them to continue their professional development by providing a variety of civil engineering knowledge resources. These include industry-leading publications from ICE Publishing and tailored courses from ICE Training.

Our services are dedicated to supporting members too – whenever they need it. We give sound legal advice and practical guidance to resolve work-related disputes. ICE’s Benevolent Fund also offers members and their families both support and development opportunities. This ranges from advice and guidance on personal and financial matters, to back-to-work schemes and training programmes.

Explore our image library

ICE’s library is home to one of the world’s largest collections of civil engineering materials. We’ve also built up a huge collection of images chronicling the history of civil engineering. From sketches of some of the most famous structures in the UK and abroad, to portraits of famous civil engineers. Many of these images are available for free, whilst we also provide access to high resolution versions on a per request basis.
