Institution of Civil Engineers. (ICE)

The initiative to found the institution was taken in 1818 by three young engineers, however it made little headway until the appointment of Thomas Telford as first president of the body. Greatly respected in his field, and with many contacts within the industry and in government, he was responsible for attracting many new members, and for obtaining a Royal Charter in 1828. ICE was the world’s first professional engineering body.
