Civil Engineering in Liverpool
Civil engineering in Liverpool is the field of engineering that studies and builds infrastructure, including roads, bridges, buildings, dams and other forms of infrastructure. It is an area of engineering that builds the things that we rely on for everyday operation of the country and the economy and as such is a very important branch of engineering. Civil engineering in Liverpool can be broken down in to many different disciplines, some older than others. Because of the simplification of elements of civil engineering, it has been around in some form (such as construction engineering) for thousands of years. Obviously it has changed a lot over time as materials science and other technology have improved, but the idea of improving buildings and infrastructure has been around since the time of the ancient Greeks.

Civil engineering in Liverpool and Widnes can be broken down into several subfields including but not limited to costal, construction, earthquake, environmental, geotechnical, materials, urban and structural engineering. All of these are separate fields of study that fall under the umbrella of the category of civil engineering in Liverpool. One can earn an undergraduate degree in civil engineering, or one can earn a degree in one of the fields listed above, or something similar. At the University of Leeds there are undergraduate degree programs offered in Civil and Environmental Engineering, as well as other degrees that could fall under this category such as Earth Systems Science or Materials Science. Although they are a different formal field of study, they all relate to the same idea and work to build and improve the nation’s infrastructure.

One important field of civil engineering in Liverpool and one that is often mentally associated with civil engineering is the field of construction engineering. Construction engineering is the engineering of a build site, overseeing the building of a structure from the transportation of materials or organization of machinery and workers. While construction engineering deals with the physical building of an element, structural engineering is a completely different, albeit related, field of civil engineering in Liverpool. Structural engineering has to do with the development of the structure itself, and the design therein. It starts with the design of the building as a whole, and includes everything form safety of the structure to aesthetic appearance, and even includes social aspects and influences which would influence the effectiveness of the structure.
There is no universal certification for civil engineers, and standards vary by country. In the United States, civil engineers must earn a degree from an ABET-accredited learning institution and then must pass the Fundamentals of Engineering exam. They then spend time (approximately several years) working in the field with someone who is experienced in the field in which they wish to work. They can then take the Principles and Practice of Engineering Exam to become accredit by the State Board. Laws and processes vary from state to state, however this is the general standard for the US. After going through this process to gain accreditation, they can use the title PE (Professional Engineer) in advertising and other forms of identification.
In the UK, certification is not too dissimilar from the US, whilst engineers must be able to demonstrate a thorough knowledge and discipline of their craft. Civil engineering in Liverpool is widespread and there are many typical landmarks and buildings which display disciplines that engineers have put into place over the years.
