Chartered Engineer ‘CEng MICE’ Achievement – A Significant Milestone:

The journey of Wojciech Fijałkowski to become the first IDH employee to complete the training scheme and gain CEng MICE professional membership is a testament to the programme and exemplifies our commitment to developing our staff.

Wojciech Fijałkowski’s Insights:

  1. Why Pursue CEng MICE Following IDH’s ICE Mentoring Scheme? “Since the early stages of my career, I aspired to have my qualifications endorsed by the professional Institution of Civil Engineers. IDH provided an opportunity to continue this journey through its mentoring scheme and project opportunities that aligned with ICE’s CEng attributes. I worked diligently to achieve Chartered status and was equipped with the requisite tools to navigate the rigorous review process.”
  2. Challenges and Positive Features: “The process allowed me to adopt a new perspective on engineering, particularly in the context of sustainability. Recognizing the lasting impact, we, as engineers, have on the world around us underscored our responsibility to contribute positively. The most challenging aspect was maintaining consistent motivation to dedicate time weekly for compiling reports, and presentations, and undertaking the necessary research ahead of the review day.”
  3. Recommendation for Others: “I wholeheartedly encourage individuals in the industry to pursue professional qualifications. Bodies like ICE offer diverse opportunities, tailored to varying educational backgrounds and work experiences.
