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.

Greater London Branch resumes

  • Thursday February 23, 2023

With the help of a group of enthusiastic volunteers, the IHE Greater London Branch has been re-established after many years dormant. The branch committee has been created – but there is still room for more people – and the focus will be on building a series of events. We are also going to ensure that all members seeking professional qualification think of the IHE for their EngTech, ICTTech, IEng, RITTech, CITP or CEng.

Over the coming weeks and months, inperson events will be announced to get us back networking, supported with online content too.

The set-up of the committee includes a chair, vice chair, secretary and treasurer. We also have our elected members, who support professional development, careers development, young professionals group, events and relationships with other organisations. The more support we have from members, friends and committees, the more that can be achieved.

Branch chair Luke Meechan aims to arrange an AGM event in October when committee positions will be elected. 

If you would like the branch to be focusing in a particular area or activity, do let us know. If you want to get involved or have an idea, please do drop an email to greater_london@ Together we can make the Greater London Branch a success.

The current committee members: chair – Luke Meechan; vice chair Dr Amer Ali; secretary – Dan Perks; treasurer – Sam Swales; elected members – Thomas Diamantis, Joshua Le Boutillier, Lixi Pan, Herbert Micallef.
