Chartered Institute of Civil Engineering Surveyors

I like the name of this organization. The Chartered Institute of Civil Engineering Surveyors, or ICES is based in the UK and since 1969 has built a reputation as a renowned center of excellence for the science and art of civil engineering surveying. I just had someone remind me today about the “art” part of surveying engineering. It’s not all science.

From their website:

The Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES) is an international qualifying body dedicated to the regulation, education and training of surveyors working within civil engineering. ICES is now recognised as the LEADING chartered professional body for civil engineering surveyors. We have introduced RELEVANT AND MEANINGFUL competencies for geospatial engineers and commercial managers which make a difference. ICES will SUPPORT you and your company within the civil engineering industry in developing and demonstrating your professional competence. We understand the civil engineering industry and are FLEXIBLE in our approach, ensuring you achieve your goals.

There are a number of membership levels and required documentation as well as specializations, some which would not fit into my definition of engineering surveying, such as quantity surveyors. However, parts of this organization look like they could be of interest to surveying engineers who work on civil engineering projects around the world.

Watch a very basic introductory video.
