About the entity

Institute of Water
The Institute of Water, founded in 1945, is the only professional body that exclusively supports the careers of anyone working in the UK water industry.


The Institute of Water (IWater) has announced an exciting partnership with the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) that enables members to access benefits that span both organisations, including events, professional development and publications.

The organisations have worked together to offer a second membership at a very attractive rate which presents members greater opportunities for their professional development.

IWater members who take up the offer will have full access to all ICE facilities in the UK and abroad, online knowledge, the ICE Benevolent Fund and will be allowed to use the post-nominals AMICE. There will also be opportunities to contribute to knowledge sharing around all aspects of water management and an intention to work together to identify and address issues of importance to the sector and society.

ICE members will also have full access to IWater member benefits and be allowed to use the post-nominals MIWater.

Lynn Cooper, Chief Executive of the Institute of Water said: “This agreement gives our members access to one of the world’s most respected professional engineering institutions – a wealth of knowledge and expertise beyond the UK water sector – and creates opportunities to work together to identify and address issues of importance to the sector and society. Three of our current Board Members are Chartered Civil Engineers and the current President of ICE – Andrew Wyllie – is a Non-Executive Director on the Board of Yorkshire Water and was previously a Non-Executive Director of Scottish Water: already we have much in common.”

Sean Harris, Director of Membership at ICE said: “I’m delighted that ICE and IoW have agreed to work more closely by signing this agreement of cooperation.

“By bringing together water professionals from both our respective organisations, we can share knowledge and best practices across a range of issues that matter to society.”

In addition, ICE and IWater will collaborate in ICE Communities of Practice and part of Project Groups. You can explore ICE’s Water Programme here.
