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.

CPD Reminder

  • Friday November 15, 2019

We’d like to take this opportunity to remind you that under the IHE members’ Code of Conduct, you are obliged to maintain and record Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

CPD takes many different forms, including reading and mentoring as well as formal training and refresher courses.

To assist members in achieving their CPD obligations, we have created a ‘CPD Hub’ containing good sources of CPD material including videos, technical articles, codes of practice and guidance documents published by the Institute, along with the MyCareerPath online CPD recording tool. Please note: you will need to log in to your members profile to access the hub.

The CPD Hub also includes a copy of the IHE CPD guide and CPD templates for members who have not yet started to record their professional development.

For our professionally registered (EngTech, IEng or CEng) members, the Engineering Council has since January 2017 required all Professional Engineering Institutions to undertake random sampling of their professionally registered members’ CPD.

The IHE is currently conducting its CPD audit for 2019 and our professionally registered members of the Institute may be asked to provide a CPD record covering their activity during 2018. Therefore, if you are professionally registered and ‘professionally active’ in the engineering profession you may be contacted and asked to supply a CPD record. Failure to do so may put your professional registration at risk.

If you have any queries or need any assistance, the IHE Membership team can be contacted by emailing
