ICE-SA Membership

The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) and the South African Institution of Civil Engineering (SAICE) first signed an agreement of co-operation in October 1992.  Over time the agreement has been reaffirmed and expanded to include the establishment of a SAICE-ICE Liaison Committee to co-ordinate services to members between the two institutions. Discussions on how best the two institutions could work together, given that the majority of ICE members who reside in South Africa are members of both institutions, commenced with the ICE Presidential visit to South Africa in November 2004. The end result of the dialogue between the two institutions was the establishment of the Joint Civils Division of SAICE and ICE (now ICE-SA), following the ICE Presidential visit in January 2007. ICE-SA has been established along the lines of the very successful Joint Structural Division established between SAICE and the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) in 1993.

In terms of the agreement all ICE members who reside in South Africa are automatically members of ICE-SA.  All SAICE members who are not ICE members but would like to be an ICE-SA member may do so by making application in writing to SAICE National Office as is the case with SAICE members becoming a member of any of SAICE’s divisions. Please feel free to submit enquiries to for any assistance.
