The Institution attributes the growth to an industry-wide effort to recognise the contribution and professionalism of technicians across the civil engineering sector.
New EngTech MICE members in 2016 include Arup Highways Technician Callum O'Connell and Civil Engineering Technician Bethany Holroyd, who are both Engineering Council case studies. Read about their careers and experiences at engc.org.uk/case-studies/
