What is the ICE Exam?

The ICE exam is available to members who have been advised they need to demonstrate non-technical further learning before they can apply for ICE’s Chartered Professional Review and who do not have the required academic qualifications to do so.

The eLearning covers the following topics:

  • Sustainability: origins, drivers, concepts, definitions
  • Recent developments at national and international levels
  • Role of civil engineering in meeting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs)
  • Triple bottom line reporting - economic, social, environmental
  • Stakeholder involvement
  • Environmental risk and the precautionary principle
  • Life cycle environmental assessment and design principles
  • Understanding the “hidden costs” of ethical decisions
  • Evaluation of issues confronting practicing professionals

  • Understand the concepts of sustainability and sustainable development including their origins, drivers and definitions
  • Recognise recent developments around sustainable development at national and international levels
  • Understand the role of civil engineering in meeting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs)
  • Be able to discuss the triple bottom line reporting - economic, social and environmental aspects
  • Recognise and be able to discuss the concept of carbon accounting
  • Identify environmental risk and understand the precautionary principle
  • Understand the “hidden costs” of ethical decisions
  • Be able to evaluate the issues confronting practicing sustainable development professionals

On completion of the eLearning you should have an understanding of the syllabus topics, and combined with your own experience and further reading, be able to apply this to the ICE Exam case study questions to demonstrate a master’s level of critical discussion.

This training course is designed for candidates preparing to sit the ICE Exam. The ICE exam is available to members who are already registered with us and who have been advised they will need to demonstrate non-technical further learning before they can apply for ICE’s Chartered Professional Review (CPR), or Chartered Professional Review Progressive (CPRP), and who do not have the required academic qualifications to do so. This ICE Exam targets:

  • Those with BEng(Hons) degrees accredited for CEng with further learning.
  • Those who graduate after June 2019 with a Washington Accord accredited Bachelor degree.

The exam allows candidates with BEng (Hons) degree or equivalent to demonstrate the CEng educational base without needing to undertake conventional further learning such as a master’s degree. It is not a standalone qualification, but a way for applicants to demonstrate their further learning in order to progress to Professional Review.
