this announcement OR time of referral:
BASIC REQUIREMENT :
Four year course of study in an accredited college or university
leading to a bachelor's or higher professional engineering degree.
The curriculum must: 1) be in a school of engineering accredited by
the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) 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.
A Combination of education and experience. The education must
include courses equivalent to a major in engineering, as shown
above. To be qualifying your experience must be sufficient to
demonstrate: Thorough knowledge of the physical and mathematical
sciences underlying professional engineering, and a good
understanding, both theoretical and practical, of the engineering
sciences and techniques and their applications to one of the
branches of engineering.
This must be demonstrated by meeting one of the following:
1. Current registration as an Engineer Intern (EI), Engineer in
Training (EIT), or licensure as a Professional Engineer (PE) by any
State, the District of Columbia, Guam, or Puerto Rico.
2. Written Test showing evidence of having successfully passed the
Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) examination, or any other written
test required for professional registration.
3. Successful completion of at least 60 semester hours of courses
in the physical, mathematical, and engineering sciences and that
included the courses specified in the basic requirements.
4. Successful completion of a curriculum leading to a bachelor's
degree in an appropriate scientific field, e.g., engineering
technology, physics, chemistry, architecture, computer science,
mathematics, hydrology, or geology, may be accepted in lieu of a
bachelor's degree in engineering, provided that you have at least 1
year of professional engineering experience acquired under
professional engineering supervision and guidance.
In addition to meeting the basic requirement above, to qualify for
this position you must also meet the qualification requirements
SPECIALIZED EXPERIENCE GS-14: In addition to meeting the basic
requirements, you must also have the following: You must have one
year of specialized experience at a level of difficulty and
responsibility equivalent to the GS-13 grade level in the Federal
service: Knowledge and technical understanding of the fundamental
principles of professional engineering and scientific disciplines
research, design, development integrated computer hardware/software
information systems; Thorough knowledge of systems design
principles and development methodologies; Knowledge of information
systems practices in areas such as applications development,
systems integration, telecommunications, database management,
security, and software engineering. At this level your experience
should include formulating and applying new IS design principles
based on broad architectural guidance; Participating in resolving
mission critical agency-wide issues; Developing Service-wide
information systems and providing recommendations.
