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. (TRANSCRIPTS REQUIRED) OR Possess a combination of college level education, training, and/or technical experience that furnished the applicant with; (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. (TRANSCRIPTS REQUIRED) The adequacy of such background must be demonstrated by one of the following (DOCUMENTATION REQUIRED): 1) Professional registration–Current 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 Board’s eminence provision as a manufacturing engineer typically would be rated eligible only for manufacturing engineering positions. (COPY OF CURRENT REGISTRATION REQUIRED)
2) 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. Because of the diversity in kind and quality of BET programs, graduates of other BET programs are required to complete at least 1 year of additional education or highly technical work experience of such nature as to provide reasonable assurance of the possession of the knowledge, skills, and abilities required for professional engineering competence. The adequacy of this background must be demonstrated by passing the EIT examination. (DOCUMENTATION REQUIRED)
3) Specified academic courses–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. (TRANSCRIPT REQUIRED)
4) 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. 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. (DOCUMENTATION REQUIRED) The above examples of related curricula are not all-inclusive.
In addition to meeting the basic educational requirements for the General Engineer, you must also meet the specialized experience requirement.

Specialized experience in construction methods and procedures, codes, and criteria; carrying out a wide variety of project related activities from earliest planning through design and construction completion of complex projects; and researching, developing, modifying, and applying methods and procedures which will assure the meeting of established deadlines and satisfactory completion of assigned projects. Competencies required for the position are as follows: Ability to, under pressure, lead staff and interdisciplinary teams to positive outcomes in complex situations. Ability to apply engineering principles and integrate complex and often disparate hospital systems and interests into effective, compliant, and functioning outcomes. Experience with maintenance and operation of utilities and complex building systems. Knowledge of maintenance and operations support to emergency management situations.
