A continuous recruitment may be closed at any time. The notice of the last day to file applications will be posted on the Job Opportunities Listing page of our website.

Duties Summary:
In order to perform the work, applicants must have knowledge of the design, operations and maintenance of a variety of mechanical systems such as ventilation, plumbing, fire control and drainage systems with related electrical control circuitry, and machinery and equipment such as pumps, generators, fans, motors and winches; and the ability to evaluate complex mechanical/electro-mechanical systems and equipment, and to recommend corrective and preventive measures, including developing modifications to operations/ maintenance procedures.

Minimum Qualification Requirements:
Applicants must meet all the requirements for the position they are seeking as of the date of the application, unless otherwise specified . In general, concurrent experiences and/or education will not be double credited unless otherwise specified. Your possession of the required amount of experience will not in and of itself be accepted as proof of qualification for the position. The overall paid or unpaid experience must be of such scope and responsibility as to conclusively demonstrate that you have the ability to perform the duties of the position. Our calculation of experience will be based upon a full-time, 40-hour work week. Part-time experience will be pro-rated. Example: Twelve months of experience at 20 hours/week will be pro rated to six months of experience. Also, hours worked in excess of 40 hours/week will not be extra credited. Example: Twelve months of experience at 60 hours/week will be credited as one year of experience, not one and a half years.

To qualify, you must meet all of the following requirements:
Education: Applicants must meet one of the requirements specified in A, B, or C below:
A. A bachelor's degree from a school of engineering in an accredited college or university. For some positions, graduation from an accredited college or university with a degree in physics, mathematics, or chemistry may be accepted as qualifying, provided the applicant has had at least 15 credits in engineering sciences, common to all engineering disciplines; e.g., thermodynamics, statics, electrical science, applied mechanics, engineering drawing, strength of materials, etc.;
B. Four years of administrative, professional or technical experience involving the application and knowledge of the fundamental physical and mathematical sciences underlying professional engineering including physics, chemistry, mathematics through integral calculus, and engineering sciences such as statics, dynamics, strength of material, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and engineering drawing and other specialized courses to one of the branches of engineering. Such experience must be substantially equivalent to the knowledge and understanding gained by completion of college training leading to a bachelor's degree in engineering; or
C. A combination of college training in engineering and experience mentioned in B above substantively equivalent to completion of college training leading to a bachelor's degree in engineering.

This position requires the application of professional knowledge of engineering principles and data. A person practicing professional engineering is able to perform, or does perform, any professional service such as consultation, investigation, evaluation, planning, design, or responsible supervision of construction or operation, in connection with any public or private utilities, structures, buildings, machines, equipment, processes, works, or projects, in which the safeguarding of life, health, or property is concerned or involved.

Engineering Experience: Three years of progressively responsible professional engineering experience which required the knowledge and application of the basic physical and mathematical and engineering sciences to the solution of theoretical or practical engineering problems.
At least one year of the required Engineering Experience must have been experience comparable to the Engineer III level in State service.
The Engineer III in State service performs moderately difficult professional engineering work in the planning, design, construction, maintenance, operation and/or evaluation of engineering projects or facilities or assists higher-level engineers on more complex projects; and performs other related duties as assigned.

Examples of Qualifying Professional Engineering Experience are as follows:
A. The development and design of machines, equipment, structures or power, water, communication or transportation systems and facilities or the preparation of development, design or construction specifications for such materials or systems, involving the use of theoretical and applied mechanics, a knowledge of the properties of materials and other appropriate engineering and scientific knowledge and skills.
B. Original research in one or more branches of engineering, developing engineering applications of physical and other scientific principles.
C. Administration of engineering programs and projects, involving analysis of requirements for equipment and materials, study of technical feasibility and cost, selection of approach and direction of problem solution.
D. Interpretation of systems operational requirements in terms of physical facilities, and the design and development of standard procedures for efficient operational use or maintenance of such facilities.
E. Evaluation, investigation, or survey of engineering projects, structures, devices, or services.
F. Such activities as production, construction, regulation, and test, when they involve engineering considerations and decisions as important and controlling elements.
Note: In some situations, experience which is not of itself clearly professional engineering experience may be accepted in lieu of "professional" engineering experience. In such cases, the experience must have been preceded by prior "professional" engineering experience and must contribute directly and significantly to the candidate's professional engineering competence. For example, an engineer may be assigned to a management or a computer systems analysis position in preparation for assumption of higher level responsibilities in engineering administration.

Mechanical Engineering Experience: Of the required three years of Engineering Experience, at least one year must have included professional Mechanical Engineering Experience. This experience must have provided applicants with knowledge and abilities of the design, operations and maintenance of a variety of mechanical systems such as ventilation, plumbing, fire control and drainage systems with related electrical control circuitry, and machinery and equipment such as pumps, generators, fans, motors and winches; and the ability to evaluate complex mechanical/electro-mechanical systems and equipment, and to recommend corrective and preventive measures, including developing modifications to operations/maintenance procedures.

Substitutions Allowed:
A. Substitution of a Master's degree in Engineering for Engineering Experience: A master's degree in a pertinent engineering field from a school of engineering in an accredited college or university may be substituted for one year of Engineering Experience.
B. Substitution of Supervisory or Staff Advisory Experience for Engineering Experience: Excess Supervisory or Staff Advisory Experience of the type and quality described below may be substituted for Engineering Experience on a year-for-year basis.
1) Supervisory Experience: Professional engineering experience which included training subordinates, coordinating and assigning workloads, evaluating performance, assisting in difficult and problem areas and maintaining high standards of work and timely accomplishment of work objectives.
2) Staff Advisory Experience: Professional engineering experience as technical expert in a specialized area or program function performing staff advisory, consultative and/or reviewing the work of a staff of specialists assigned to such activities as long-range planning, research and/or development of specific projects, programs, etc.

Special Requirement: Some positions may require the ability to lift and carry loads of various weights.

License:
A. Professional License: Applicants must possess a valid license as a Professional Engineer in the State of Hawaii.
