Roughan & O'Donovan (ROD) has recently secured approval from the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) to operate an ICE training scheme. The scheme will enable us to support our technicians and engineers through their initial professional development and on to a professional qualification: incorporated or Chartered Engineer status-IEng or CEng MICE.
The decision follows a review by the ICE of our proposed training scheme and an interview with ROD Director, Jim Thorpe, and Principal Design Engineer, John Collins, who led the application process.
ROD has long been committed to the continuing professional development of our staff and to setting high standards in support of lifelong learning. Our two-year graduate programme, for example, offers graduate engineers the opportunity to gain experience across a range of discipline areas, including bridges, transportation and buildings. It is considered one of the most robust in the industry.
As an ICE approved employer, we look forward to supporting our technicians and engineers in progressing to a professional review with the ICE.
