Arbroath engineer Michael Bastow has been awarded membership of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE).
ICE membership (MICE) can be awarded to a wide range of engineers practising in the broad area of civil engineering. Mr Bastow, who has met all the requirements of ICE’s Member Professional Review, is now entitled to use the designation, ‘Incorporated civil engineer’.
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.
Sara Thiam, ICE Scotland regional director, commented: “Achieving ICE Incorporated membership is a significant personal and career achievement and we welcome Michael into the ICE.”
Mr Bastow, who works for Dundee City Council, said: “When I received my result I was extremely proud. Successfully passing my review has been the reward for years of hard work and dedication to reach the level required for professional recognition. I feel very privileged to say I am a member of the ICE.”
His career highlight so far has been working on the Dundee Central Waterfront – being responsible for the design and specification of the new public realm works.
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.
