A professional engineering (or other technical area) degree at the bachelors level, from an accredited institution in Engineer or a closely related engineering (scientific) discipline is highly desired.
A. Degree: professional engineering. To be acceptable, the curriculum must: (1) be in a school of engineering with at least one curriculum accredited by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET) as a professional engineering curriculum; or (2) include differential and integral calculus and courses (more advanced than first-year physics and chemistry) in five of the following seven areas of engineering science or physics: (a) statics, dynamics; (b) strength of materials (stress-strain relationships) ; (c) fluid mechanics, hydraulics; (d) thermodynamics; (e) electrical fields and circuits; (f) nature and properties of materials (relating particle and aggregate structure to properties); and (g) any other comparable area of fundamental engineering science or physics, such as optics, heat transfer, soil mechanics, or electronics.
B. Combination of education and experience -- college-level education, training, and/or technical experience that furnished (1) a thorough knowledge of the physical and mathematical sciences underlying professional engineering, and (2) a good understanding, both theoretical and practical, of the engineering sciences and techniques and their applications to one of the branches of engineering. The adequacy of such background must be demonstrated in the following:
1. Professional Registration;
2. Written Test (Engineering-in-Training, EIT);
3. Specified Academic Courses;
4. Related Curriculum.
In order to qualify, you must meet the education and/or experience requirements described below. Your resume must clearly describe your relevant experience; if qualifying based on education, your transcripts will be required as part of your application.
ADDITIONAL QUALIFICATION REQUIREDMENT (SPECIALIZIED EXPERIENCE):
Subsequent to meeting the basic qualifications above, you must have at least 1 year of specialized experience as a General Engineer planning, evaluating and recommending programs and development plans for substantial multi-phase new construction, renovation, and improvement projects for a variety of real property facilities.
