ICE Graduate Training Scheme

Jul 18, 2013

Byrne Looby has developed a Graduate Training Scheme which has been approved by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), London. Revolving around the 15 ICE Development objectives, the key aims of the scheme are to ensure our engineers receive the appropriate depth and breadth of experience in the early stages of their career. Each Graduate is supported by a Mentor/Supervising Civil Engineer (SCE) who provides the valuable guidance and assistance necessary in developing the Graduate Engineer’s training and experience.  This enables us to self-certify our Graduates' Initial Professional Development (IPD) prior to siting their Chartered Professional Review (CPR). This also avoids the need for our Graduates to pass a Career Appraisal in advance of sitting their CPR.  With UK Director, David Beadman as a Reviewer with the ICE, Byrne Looby are now well placed to provide Graduate Engineers with the experience and training needed to achieve Chartered status.   

In addition to the Graduate Training Scheme Byrne Looby are committed to providing the best training opportunities for our Graduates Engineers. Our engineer Matina Sougle has been seconded to Bauer Technologies Limited for 4-6 months to gain some site experience on the new US London Embassy, which is being built in Battersea.  Bauer recently won the foundation sub-contract on this prestigious project (with assistance from Byrne Looby) which is one of the biggest and most challenging foundation projects underway in London in 2013.  Matina should get some excellent hands on experience of constructing the standard foundation techniques adopted in London as part of her work on the project.  

We are also delighted to announce that our Engineer Eoin Murphy has passed his Chartered Professional Review at the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) during the Spring 2013 sessions. He is now able to quote the well-recognised designation 'CEng MICE' after his name. Well done Eoin!
