Basic Requirements FOR 0810 CIVIL ENGINEER:
A Bachelor's degree (or higher degree) in Engineering. To be acceptable, the program must: (1) lead to a bachelor's degree in a school of engineering with at least one program accredited by 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. (You must submit copies of your official transcript that show the date and degree awarded.)
Combination of Education and Experience: 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 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 following:
1.Professional registration or licensure -- Current registration as an Engineer Intern (EI), Engineer in Training (EIT)1, or licensure as a Professional Engineer (PE) 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 Board's eminence provision as a manufacturing engineer typically would be rated eligible only for manufacturing engineering positions.
2.Written Test -- Evidence of having successfully passed the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE)2 examination or any other written test required for professional
In addition to meeting the basic requirement above, to qualify for this position you must also meet the qualification requirements listed below.
SPECIALIZED EXPERIENCE: Applicants must have at least one (1) year of specialized experience at the next lower grade GS-09, or equivalent in other pay systems. Examples of specialized experience includes;Professional knowledges and abilities applicable to a wide range of civil engineering duties; ability to modify standard practices and adapt equipment or techniques to solve a variety of problems; ability to adapt precedents or make significant departures from previous approaches to similar projects in order to provide for the specialized requirements of some projects; and ability to apply the standard practices of related engineering disciplines and architecture as they relate to maintenance engineering. Ability to plan and monitor large-scale civil engineering projects to ensure compliance with applicable objectives, standards, and requirements. Broad understanding of state and local jurisdictions over the use of land and natural resources, the construction of facilities and utilities, and the distribution of utilities services. Comprehensive knowledge of the installation/command mission and organization.
FEDERAL TIME-IN-GRADE (TIG) REQUIREMENT FOR GENERAL SCHEDULE (GS) POSITIONS: Merit promotion applicants must meet applicable time-in-grade requirements to be considered eligible. One year at the GS-09 level is required to meet the time-in-grade requirements for the GS-11 level. TIG applies if you are in a current GS position or held a GS position within the previous 52 weeks.
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:
1.Professional knowledge of civil engineering concepts, principles, and practices and familiarity with other engineering disciplines and architecture.
2.Knowledge of engineering and construction standards, methods, practices, techniques, materials, and equipment to determine compliance with federal, state, and local codes and regulations; and standard contracting regulations, practices, and procedures.
3.Knowledge of the operations, products, services, needs, and goals of the programs and organizations studied or served as well as related customers, functions, resources, and users; and of automated data processing concepts, systems capabilities, and economic usage to effectively accomplish assigned functions.
4.Knowledge of health, safety, and environmental requirements as outlined in applicable standards, regulations, and/or technical orders.
5.Ability to plan, conduct, and record site/facility surveys and inspections.
6.Ability to plan and organize work; analyze, interpret, and apply rules, regulations, and procedures in a variety of situations; recommend timely and economical solutions; coordinate with other engineering disciplines and architects; communicate effectively both orally and in writing; and maintain good working relations.
