Trowbridge Engineer Achieves ?MICE? Status

19th September, 2012
Local engineer, Daniel Tiley, has been awarded membership of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) at a Presentation Ceremony held on 17th September.

ICE membership (MICE) can be awarded to a wide range of engineers practising in the broad area of civil engineering. Daniel, who has met all the requirements of ICE?s Member Professional Review, is now entitled to add the letters MICE to his name.

ICE's professionally qualified grades of membership are internationally recognised and highly valued. Attainment of these is widely viewed as a significant achievement and a benchmark of an engineer's competence and professional standing.

Daniel was presented his membership certificate by ICE President, Richard Coackley at an admission ceremony held at the ICE headquarters in Westminster, London.

Trish Johnson, ICE South West Regional Director, commented: ?Civil engineering is an important engineering discipline sitting right at the heart of society. It is all about creating, improving and protecting the infrastructure that we all depend on in our day-to-day lives ? from bridges, roads and railways right through to energy networks and water and waste infrastructure. The magnificent 2012 Olympic venues and surrounding infrastructure are also the work of our civil engineers.

?Achieving ICE membership is a significant personal and career achievement and we welcome Daniel into the Institution.?

Daniel, who lives in Trowbridge and works for Wessex Water as a Project Engineer, said he was thrilled to become a Member of ICE: ?I became a civil engineer because it was a good match with my abilities in school, but it has become really worthwhile and rewarding as well. I was once involved in a ?28m sewage project that included the construction of 4.5m diameter steel silos, which stood 25m high when they were erected. There?s nothing better than seeing something built that you have been involved in.?

The opportunity to join ICE is available to civil engineers, technicians and technical/scientific specialists at every stage of their professional career, from students and apprentices to senior board directors.
