IHE membership formally recognises your qualifications and industry experience. Join us and demonstrate your technical skills, qualifications and expertise to clients and employers. We offer membership types for highways professionals at every stage of their career.
We’ve been registering engineers and technicians with the Engineering Council since 1972 and accrediting academic courses since 1989. You can take advantage of our extensive highways experience and trained specialist advisors, by becoming a member.
The IHE offers membership at student, affiliate, apprentice, associate member, member or fellow grades. There are also experience-only routes to membership. You’re welcome to join the relevant IHE grade provided you have the required experience and/or qualifications.
IHE members can upgrade to another membership level with the necessary qualifications or experience.
We aim to deal with membership applications within six weeks but in some cases, we may need to refer your application to our Membership and Qualifications Committee which meets every two months.
New members can join the IHE at any stage of the route below, dependent upon qualifications and experience. Choose a membership type on the interactive graphic below to explore the route.
