Civil engineers to benefit from new route to build management skills

CMI and the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) are pleased to announce a new agreement which will open up Chartered Manager status to ICE members with the appropriate engineering qualifications and management experience. 

The new pathway to CMI membership, signed by ICE Director General Nick Baveystock and CMI Chief Executive Ann Francke, reflects the importance of exemplary management and leadership skills for those who are responsible for delivering vital civil engineering projects. 

CMI has incorporated the Engineering Council qualifications into its assessment framework, enabling Chartered Engineers (CEng) and Incorporated Engineers (IEng) to apply for Chartered Manager status via the ‘qualified’ route provided they have five years or more of management experience. Successful candidates will have access to CMI’s comprehensive range of products and services designed to develop more efficient managers and leaders, capable of making a greater impact within their organisations. 

Ann Francke said: “Management and leadership are vital in delivering the nation’s infrastructure, which is why I am so pleased that we are working in partnership with the ICE. Qualifying as a Chartered Manager confirms your management and leadership credentials and will increase your confidence to deliver success. We look forward to working with ICE members.”

Nick Baveystock said he was “delighted ICE and CMI have agreed the new pathway”. 

“Chartered Manager status complements ICE’s engineering qualifications and greatly endorses an individual’s management and leadership credentials -it is the ideal partner to IEng and CEng.” he added.
