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.

Re-establishing the Greater London Branch

  • Tuesday October 18, 2022

We are very excited to establish a firm relationship with our academic partners at London South Bank University. This has provided the foundation to re-establish the Greater London Branch for our members. We will establish a programme of activity for 2023 that shares learning through meetings, seminars and hopefully establishing an annual conference. In addition we want to ensure we encourage our highway professionals of the future. The relationship with LBSU will enable students and graduates to engage with IHE as a professional institute and support all members on the professional pathway form EngTech to CEng accreditation.

The branch will establish an interim committee. As such we need your help.

Luke Meechan (Metis) and Dr Amer Ali (LBSU) will be interim Chair and Vice Chair respectively but we will need to fill a wide range of committee roles to be able to deliver a meaningful programme of activity. This support is voluntary but it is important we represent all facets of the industry. If you are interested drop us an email for a chat. If you have no IHE or committee experience that is no problem, we just need enthusiasm.

To get in touch drop us an email to Luke at with an outline of how you would like to help or any questions you have. It would be great to get an interim committee established by Christmas and events in the diary for early 2023.
