Bradford MEng graduate awarded elite status by ICE


Bradford MEng graduate Ewart Prichard has been awarded elite chartered status by the Institution of Civil Engineers.

Ewart, 38, who lives in York and works for Doncaster based, tunnelling consultant specialist Alan Auld Engineering Ltd, has been awarded the protected title of Chartered Engineer and membership of the ICE, which allows him to add the letters CEng and MICE after his name. He grew up in Snowdonia, Gwynedd and studied for an MEng in Civil and Structural Engineering at the University of Bradford between 2006 and 2011.

ICE membership can be awarded to a wide range of engineers practising in the broad area of civil engineering in recognition for their work in the field, and after passing a professional review. The organisation has 90,000 members worldwide, including more than 4,000 in Yorkshire.

The ICE’s professionally qualified grades of membership are internationally recognised, and are viewed in the engineering sectors as a significant achievement and a benchmark of an engineer’s competence and professional standing.

Ewart said: “Passing my review was an exhilarating and immense feeling of achievement, I am thankful to receive this professional honour, and I am grateful to all those excellent tutors and engineers who have mentored me.

"Working for a specialist tunnelling consultancy, I have gained a vast amount of experience in the field of Tunnelling, a subject which I’m passionate about, and I continue to learn every day. I am particularly proud to have been involved with a sprayed concrete lined drift tunnel constructed for a mine in Ireland.

"For anyone considering a career in engineering I would say seize every opportunity that is presented to you, and work hard, the benefits are endless.“
