  • 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.

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.

IHE Senior Officers Team has it’s first virtual meeting

  • Wednesday June 24, 2020

The Institute’s Senior Officers Team consisting of the president Jonathan Pearson, senior vice president Stephen Webb, junior vice president Martin Polland and honorary treasurer Ellie Gormley were joined by chief executive Steve Spender and deputy chief executive Chris Dobson for their first virtual meeting due to the COVID-19 restrictions.

The meeting was held in April via Zoom and was a great success. It enabled those in attendance to discuss some of the important business necessary to ensure the continued operations of the IHE during this period of lockdown.

The IHE staff are still working as normal through remote working and continue to support our members during this difficult period. We are still able to provide advice, guidance and assistance, particularly to those wishing to use the available time to progress their applications towards professional review.

Many of our members continue to help provide essential services such as maintaining a safe network, as well as continuing to prepare schemes and work packages in preparation for any relaxation
of the current restrictions.
