The Association of Civil Engineering Departments (ACED) exists to promote excellence in the teaching of Civil Engineering students and in the activity of Civil Engineering research, to provide a forum for debate about important issues, to initiate enquiries or investigations on matters of concern to the Membership, and to represent the interests of the Membership at the Engineering Professors’ Council, of which it is a sectoral group, and other bodies agreed by the committee.

Membership of ACED is open to any department that offers a civil engineering or related degree programme accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators.
