New Student Chapter of the Institution of Civil Engineers at the Faculty for the Built Environment.

The International Committee of the Instituion of Civil Engineers (ICE) in London recently approved the setting up of the new ICE Student Chapter at the Faculty for the Built Environment of the University of Malta.
The Institution of Civil Engineers was founded in the United Kingdom in 1818 and was granted a Royal Charter in 1828. The aim of the Institution is to "foster and promote the art and science of civil engineering". The ICE represents around 80,000 civil engineers worldwide making it one of the largest civil engineering organisations in the world. As a qualifying body it provides an internationally recognised civil engineering qualification and acts as a centre of excellence for civil engineering knowledge. The ICE promotes the civil engineering profession by ensuring that everyone understands the positive impact that civil engineers have on society. 
The Malta Group of Professional Engineering Institutions (MGPEI) founded in the early 1960’s acts as the national contact for the Institutions of Civil Engineers, Mechanical Engineers and Engineering Technology.
The new Student Chapter was set up as an initiative of members of SACES (Society of Architecture and Civil Engineering Students at the University of Malta) and Dr. Ruben Paul Borg of the Faculty for the Built Environment who was recently officially appointed by the Institution as the ICE National Representative. The ICE Student Chapter aims to work closely with the Dean of the Faculty and Dr. Borg as the ICE National Representative, and the International Officer of SACES.
The Student Chapter in collaboration with the MGPEI - Instituion of Civil Engineers shall support the Annual Dissertation awards at the Faculty for the Built Environment and shall organise public lectures, design competitions and exhibitions.
