MCE as pleased to lead the ICE’s Bicentennial Celebrations in Australasia

MCE have worked with members of the ICE’s NSW committee to organise and curate the Australasian Conference in Manly this September. 2018 marks the 200th year of the Institution of Civil Engineers and we are going to celebrate the benefits of engineering to society at the Australasia ICE200 Engineers Transforming the World Conference at the International College of Management in Manly. It will be a celebration of engineering with a specific focus on the future of engineering and emerging technologies, topical in the current period of unprecedented investment in social infrastructure and a need to deliver more efficiently.  Tickets were released this week and are available here: ICE200 Conference.

We have attracted an industry wide speaker panel of engineering industry leaders to provide a global perspective with an applicable local basis. The conference has been shaped for senior executives, managers and engineers from client and industry organisations, to learn, network and celebrate engineering.

Headline speakers include:

  • Rodd Staples, Secretary of Transport – Keynote speaker;
  • Tim Broyd, ICE Past President 2016-17 Professor of Civil Engineering at the University College London;

The two-day event will include presentations, panel discussions, workshops and the ability to talk and interact with industry technology providers in BIM and project management. In addition, there will be a focus on the next generation of engineers on the second day of the event, where local schools will be invited to compete in engineering focused challenges and learn more about engineering.
