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.

First virtual drop-in session a success

  • Wednesday February 16, 2022

By Mark Fleming, IHE Mercia Branch Chair

The IHE Mercia Branch hosted their first virtual professional registration drop-in session in November last year.

This was a fantastic opportunity for Mercia Branch members to discuss their professional registration applications with IHE reviewers and other members, especially in light of the Engineering Council’s changes to the specifications for each professional registration grade, which the IHE has adopted.

The Mercia Branch will aim to host these drop-in sessions more frequently. However, please do not wait for these sessions to be arranged – if you have any queries please get in touch with us at so that we can provide advice.

I want to thank those of you who attended the session as well as the committee members, IHE reviewers and mentors who volunteered to assist with this drop-in session. We are always looking to improve, so if there is anything you believe we can do better, please let us know. You can contact us via email –
