Institution of Civil Engineers – ICEFLOE

Do you want to make a difference?  Would you like the chance to change your world?  It’s easy to say you want to change the world but did you know that some people work towards changing the world everyday and they get paid to do it! 

Have you ever been on the London Eye, or seen the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, or the Eden Project?  What did you think?  Did you know that civil engineers built all of these?  But we don’t only work on big projects like these; there are small ones too.  Civil engineers help to improve your streets, are involved in building wind farms to provide an alternative to nuclear energy; we have been involved in the debate around cars versus public transport; and every year civil engineers work abroad in places like Africa after earthquakes and other disasters in relief teams to provide clean water and build new homes.  In fact without civil engineering there wouldn’t be bridges, railway tracks, motorways – even football stadiums!  And who knows how many things there are still to discover that might make our lives better. 

We want to change our world and we want you to help us!  If this is the kind of world you’d like to get involved in why don’t you ask your teacher/parent to call 020 7665 2152 now and we can arrange for you to speak to someone who has worked on some of these exciting projects.
