Civil engineers are some of the most highly sought-after professionals of any engineering field. The US currently has approximately 274,000 civil engineering jobs available, compared to 264,000 for mechanical engineering and 229,000 for industrial engineering. Within the civil engineering field, about 10 percent of engineers are employed in architectural engineering and related capacities.

So, you want to be a detection engineer?

Article | April 5, 2020

Detection engineers design and build security systems that constantly evolve to defend against current threats. Two common defenses include securing networks via configuration changes GPO, basic firewalls, etc. and deploying active prevention security suites advanced firewalls, antivirus, etc. Because security professionals recognize that no system can perfectly keep out attackers, the other option is to detect malicious behaviors – in network traffic and/or on a host – that bypassed the other security controls.

The latest on ICE's second UK infrastructure assessment consultation

Article | April 5, 2020

ICE Policy and Public Affairs recently launched a discussion paper and consultation on what should be in the second National Infrastructure Assessment (NIA). The work progresses the institution’s aims to influence infrastructure policy at a systems level. This autumn, the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) will publish its baseline assessment of the current state of key infrastructure sectors, along with proposals for the strategic themes and main priorities of the second NIA expected in 2023. Having been closely involved in both the establishment of the NIC in 2013 and the first NIA in 2018, our consultation asks what the core considerations of NIA2 should be – including net-zero, levelling-up and climate resilience – and explores which demand drivers have changed since the first NIA. Through this paper, we’re seeking to shape the wider infrastructure policy debate, consistently and over a number of years, by examining what our long-term infrastructure should look like – and most importantly, ensure it delivers the sustainable future outcomes we need it to. Look out for more updates later this year on ICE’s work in this area.

'Securing the talent of the future will not be the same as the past'

Article | April 5, 2020

writing this piece, there are hundreds of thousands of vacancies in the job market and companies closing or reducing service levels because they cannot get enough people. Yet at the same time, there are also hundreds of thousands of people at home because they are still on the furlough scheme. That such a position could exist – and be correct policy - shows how the job market has been turned upside down by the pandemic. The issue of skills in the workforce has not been so critical for many years. When it comes to the workforce we need, the UK has not been growing its own for many years. That is compounded by restricted international movements from both the pandemic and changing politics. The very nature of the skills required are changing, too.
