About Us

Our vision is to be the Institute of Choice for Highway Engineers. Our mission is to provide professional development opportunities, support and leadership for individuals to achieve and maintain professional recognition.

  • Learn about the IHE. IHE membership formally recognises your qualifications and industry experience.

  • We’ve been registering engineers and technicians with the Engineering Council since 1972 and accrediting academic courses since 1989. We’re proud of our long history and provide our members with 50 plus years of highways experience.

IHE Membership

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.

Professional Registration

Becoming a professionally registered engineer demonstrates your high standard of competence and commitment. By choosing to register, you set yourself apart as an engineer with high standards and also demonstrate your commitment to maintain that competence in the future.

Academy Training

The IHE Highway Engineering Academy offers industry-led training in highway engineering. Through one of our specialist training courses leading to an industry-recognised Professional Certificate or Diploma, the HEA delivers the qualifications, skills and knowledge demanded by the highways industry which are in short supply today.

Work with us

Professional Development Partnerships are open to Highways Sector businesses, Local Government Authorities, Academic Institutions, Professional Engineering Institutes and other Highways interest based organisations.


We administer the registers for Highway Inspectors and Road Safety Auditors as well as manage our active forums contributed to by highways professionals.

An Academic-Professional partnership formalises an arrangement between the IHE and an Academic Partner to provide support, advice, and guidance on the membership of a professional Institute and to provide advice and assistance on the routes towards professional registration for students.

Academic-Professional Partnership agreements enable a closer working relationship between the IHE and Academic institutions in order to offer increased support and guidance for students studying Civil Engineering with a particular interest in Highways & Transportation.

The IHE is keen to develop working relationships with all Academic Institutions in order to support students throughout their education and onwards towards potential professional registration.

As a professional Institute the IHE is actively involved with a number of universities across the UK where we provide presentations and guidance regarding membership of an institution such as the IHE and also provide guidance and support on the various routes to professional registration, and we are keen to formalise these arrangements through this recently introduced scheme.
