(ICE) STUDENT CHAPTER

“TO PROMOTE AND PROGRESS CIVIL


ENGINEERING”
1.0 INTRODUCTION

ICE (Institution of Civil Engineers), a professional body for Civil


Engineers, which is recognised worldwide. The institution was founded
in UK by a small group of idealistic young man. It carries an aim all this
while, simple enough, which is to “foster and promote the art and science
of civil engineering”. ICE now, is a qualifying body, a centre for the
exchange of specialist knowledge, and a provider of resources to
encourage innovation and excellence in the profession, worldwide. In
addition, ICE offers an online worldwide recruitment service that
supports employers and candidates alike and also provides training
services for engineering professional. Such an important body that
nowadays, Civil Engineers all around the world are recognising ICE as a
must join institution for a secured, brighter and better future.

As future engineers in years to come, students shall be exposed to


of course international organizations that may help them much, not only
in knowledge wise, but also including preparations as well as
experiences. Through active participations in any clubs, students are
coached and shaped in many aspects such as leadership skills,
communication skills, teamwork application, networking ability, thinking
intelligence and many more, before they are able to stand strong on their
own during working paths. Thus, ICE Student Chapter has foreseen
bright approach mainly for Civil Engineering course students in UNITEN
to gain extra knowledge from ranging technical talks and forums
organized by experienced civil engineers and professions. Malaysia’s
High Education minister, do urge students to stay active in both
curriculum and co-curriculum activities when they are pursuing their
degrees. Hereby, the formation of ICE Student Chapter in UNITEN is
believed to be the very first ICE Student Chapter in any universities
throughout Malaysia. This breakthrough has strongly driven students to
uphold new learning stages in this professional body of Civil Engineering
locally and internationally. From the establishing of this particular student
chapter in XXXX, consistent with XXXX vision: XXXX generates

another from various occasions this student chapter proudly brings out in
the future. Brief layouts have been performed and the workout of them
will be seriously followed up during the members drive.

Hence, with the ICE Student Chapter in South Valley University


(Qena), students of South Valley University (Qena) are able to enjoy the
benefits that ICE offers. Privileges likewise, students of South Valley
University (Qena) can get connected to the international level of Civil
Engineering. Through this connection, students will be exposed internally

which have provided useful information and knowledge for students in
the need for research-based projects. Not only that, students of South
