BASIC REQUIREMENTS: Basic
Requirements must be met - UNOFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS REQUIRED when
applying to this position. Official transcripts will be required if appointed:
qualify as a General Engineer (801), you must have:
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 electronic.
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
registration as a professional engineer by any State, the District of Columbia,
Guam, or Puerto Rico. Absent other means of qualifying under this standard,
those applicants who achieved such registration by means other than written
test (e.g., State grandfather or eminence provisions) are eligible only for
positions that are within or closely related to the specialty field of their
registration. For example, an applicant who attains registration through a
State Boards eminence provision as a manufacturing engineer typically would be
rated eligible only for manufacturing engineering positions.
Successful completion of at least 60 semester 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 above.
completion of a curriculum leading to a bachelors 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. Ordinarily there should be either an
established plan of intensive training to develop professional engineering
competence, or several years of prior professional engineering-type experience,
e.g., in interdisciplinary positions. (The above examples of related curricula
are not all-inclusive.)
qualify as an Architect (808), you must have:
Degree in architecture; or related field that included 60
semester hours of course work in architecture or related disciplines of which
at least (1) 30 semester hours were in architectural design, and (2) 6 semester
hours were in each of the following: structural technology, properties of
materials and methods of construction, and environmental control systems.
Combination of education and experience: college-level education, training,
and/or technical experience that furnished (1) a thorough knowledge of the arts
and sciences underlying professional architecture, and (2) a good
understanding, both theoretical and practical, of the architectural principles,
methods, and techniques and their applications to the design and construction
or improvement of buildings. The adequacy of such background must be
demonstrated by Related Curriculum: such as a degree in architectural
engineering or Experience: 1 year of experience in an architects office
or in architectural work for each year short of graduation from a program of
study in architecture. In the absence of college courses, 5 years of such
experience is required. This experience must have demonstrated that you have
acquired a thorough knowledge of the fundamental principles and theories of
qualify as a Landscape Architect (807), you must have:
Degree in landscape architecture or landscape design.
Combination of education and experience: for each year short of graduation, you
must have had 1 year of experience under professional leadership and guidance
of such character and diversity as to be a satisfactory substitute for the
required education. This experience must have included original landscape
