Two North East engineers achieve professional awards




Two North East engineers achieve professional awards

Two North East engineers have been recognised by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), the oldest professional engineering association in the world.

Nick Zissler, who grew up in Richmond, works as a design engineer for Network Rail in York was awarded Chartered Civil Engineer Membership and Kevin Miller, who grew up in Longbenton, and who works as a reservoir safety manager for Northumbrian Water in Newcastle, was elected as a Fellow. They were presented their awards by ICE President Andrew Wyllie, CBE, at a special ceremony held at ICE’s headquarters in Westminster, London.

Nick said: “I’ve always liked figuring out how things work, taking things to bits and re-building them.

“Working on the Civil Assessment Framework Agreement, delivering assessments of significant railway structures ensuring the network is safe has been my career highlight to date.”

Kevin said: “Just one of many highlights in my career was having the opportunity to work as an engineer for the main contractor on the construction of Palmeit Pump Storage Scheme in the Cape Province, South Africa.

“The primary function of this dam originally was to provide cheaper electricity, however, it is very satisfying to me to observe how it is now key in providing much needed water during the current, unfortunate drought in the Cape Province.

“I watched unused, undisturbed pieces of land being developed into roads, bridges, power stations and multitudinous other construction assets which we all use in our daily lives.

“Later this inspiration continued by being part of huge team ensuring there is a consistent supply of drinkable water for us all to enjoy now and well into the future.”

 

ICE represents more than 92,000 civil engineers and technicians across the world who design, build and maintain transport, water, energy, waste and flood infrastructure.

Penny Marshall, regional director of ICE North East, said: “These awards are significant personal and career achievements and we are proud to welcome Nick and Kevin as a member and Fellow respectively of ICE.

“They join a community of professionals who are committed to shaping, improving and protecting the infrastructure on which we all depend. ICE congratulates Nick and Kevin on their success.”

Nick added: “I would urge anyone who is considering a career in engineering to get industry experience as soon as possible. Get a summer placement, a year in the industry – get your hands dirty.”
