The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) collaborated with the Institution of Chemical Engineers (iChemE) and Institution of Mechanical Engineers (iMechE) to establish a regional hub in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur. The hub will provide membership support for ICE Members in South East Asia, while also enabling ICE to provide development services to engineering companies.
During the officiation, Sean Harris, ICE Director or Membership said: “Our professional qualifications are unrivalled in quality and recognised around the world. When you become a member, you join our global community of more than 90,000 civil engineering professionals.”
The superhero-themed opening ceremony, Invisible Superheroes, coincided with ICE’s 200th Anniversary, with Lord Robert Mair, President of ICE providing the keynote address an audience of over 250 people.
“Civil engineers can be proud to say that ours is a profession with a great history of transforming lives. We are the Invisible Superhero’s of society. We want to emphasise the power behind what engineers do and engage a public audience of adults and young people, telling the story of how Civil Engineers transformed lives in a major way,” he stated.
