BASIC QUALIFICATION REQUIREMENTS
: (All Grade Levels) Candidates for these positions must possess:
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 for 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. OR
For a description of how to qualify based on a combination of education and experience under section "B" go to this link:
Applicants qualifying under paragraph B.4. with a bachelor's degree in engineering technology or in an appropriate professional field, e.g., physics, chemistry, architecture, computer science, mathematics, hydrology, or geology, must provide a written statement describing the extensive training plan he/she has completed to develop professional engineering competence, or how their several years of engineering-type experience has provided them with the professional knowledge of engineering, which is defined as the comprehensive, in-depth knowledge of mathematical, physical, and engineering sciences applicable to a specialty field of engineering that characterizes a full 4-year professional engineering curriculum leading to a bachelor's degree, or the equivalent.
Subsequent to meeting the Basic Education requirements outlined above, you must also possess at least one year of professional experience in or directly related to the work of the position. This experience must have equipped the applicant with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to successfully perform the duties described above. To be creditable, this experience must have been equivalent in level of difficulty and responsibility to that of the next lower grade
, pay band or equivalent in the Federal Service.
at the next lower grade, pay band or equivalent, or the level of difficulty and complexity, the engineer independently plans and carries out project work, based on project and administrative assignments received from the supervisor, who provides general information on the work. Unusual or controversial problems or policy questions that arise in the course of a project are discussed with the supervisor; however, technical supervisory assistance is infrequently sought or required. The engineer selects, adapts, and applies many guidelines, precedents, and engineering principles and practices; and prepares final reports of his/her work results that include his/her conclusions and recommendations based on factual and reduced data.
Only experience obtained by the closing date of this announcement will be considered.
HOW YOU WILL BE EVALUATED:
KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS AND ABILITIES (KSAs): Your qualifications will be evaluated on the basis of your level of knowledge, skills, abilities and/or competencies in the following areas:
Skill to apply advanced engineering principles and practices to mechanical, aerospace, or electrical systems, subsystems, and programs. Extensive knowledge of Embedded Computer Hardware, Software, Automated Test Systems, Aircraft Structures, and/or Systems Engineering.
