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.

Southern Branch Newsletter – message from the Branch Chair

  • Thursday June 11, 2020

Welcome to my first annual newsletter as Southern Branch chairman. The newsletter provides branch news and updates and reports on our events that we have held in the past 12 months.

The first thing I must mention is COVID-19. This has forced the postponement of all future events until at present the end of June, but will be revised in time along with government advice.

Can I just mention what an amazing service that all the key workers have done, risking their own health to help keep us all safe and deliver provisions. What a response for volunteers to help the NHS over 400,000 individuals.

The newsletter contains:

  • Editorial
  • AGM 23rd June 2019
  • Using road plastics to enhance our road network 18th September 2019
  • Greenwich University 20th September 2019
  • Highway Engineers…Courting Trouble 23rd October 2019
  • Wine and Wisdom Charity Quiz Night 22nd November 2019
  • Passive Safety Workshop 4th December 2019
  • New committee members

Look after yourselves, be kind to others, keep to the curfew and do what you can to help where it is needed.

Look forward to seeing you soon.

Hope to see you at a future event.

Best wishes, be safe,
