next lower grade/level (GG-12). Specialized experience is defined as: Demonstrates
experience with a wide range of electronics engineering to include Science and
Technology (S&T) intelligence analysis techniques and design methodologies
as they relate to the capabilities of foreign threat systems and functional
hardware simulations of threat systems.
You will be evaluated on the basis of
your level of competency (knowledge, skills, abilities) in the following areas:
DESIGN, DEVELOP, AND INTEGRATE
FUNCTIONAL HARDWARE SIMULATIONS OF THREAT SYSTEMS
SYSTEM ENGINEERING DISCIPLINES TO
FOREIGN THREAT SYSTEMS AND
PROGRAM MANAGEMENT TO TEST AND
NOTE: Creditable experience may
include previous military experience, experience gained in the private sector,
or experience gained in another government agency so long as it was at a level
at least equivalent to the next lower grade in the series.
EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS: Applicants must meet at least one of the following
Basic Entry Requirements (A or B) and provide supporting documentation for
verification for the Electronics Engineer position:
Bachelors or higher degree in 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.
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 by one of the
Professional registration -- Current registration as a professional engineer by
any State, the District of Columbia, Guam, or Puerto Rico.
Written Test -- Evidence of having successfully passed the Engineer-in-Training
(EIT) examination, or the written test required for professional registration,
which is administered by the Boards of Engineering Examiners in the various
States, the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico. Applicants who have
passed the EIT examination and have completed all the requirements for either
(a) a bachelor's degree in engineering technology (BET) from an accredited
college of university that included 60 semester hours or 90 quarter hours of
courses in the physical, mathematical, and engineering sciences, or (b) a BET
from a program accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and
Technology (ABET) will be acceptable.
Specified academic courses -- Successful completion of at least 60 semester
hours or 90-quarter hours of courses in the physical, mathematical, and
engineering sciences and in engineering that included the courses specified in
the basic requirements. The courses must be fully acceptable toward meeting the
requirements of a professional engineering curriculum as described in paragraph
Related curriculum -- Successful completion of a curriculum leading to a
bachelor's degree in engineering technology or in an appropriate professional
field, e.g., physics, chemistry, architecture, computer science, mathematics,
hydrology, or geology, may be accepted in lieu of a degree in engineering,
provided the applicant has had at least 1 year of professional engineering
experience acquired under professional engineering supervision and guidance.
