Additional information about transcripts is in this document. Basic Requirement for Supervisory Computer Engineer:
A. Degree: Bachelor’s degree (or higher degree) in engineering. To be acceptable, the program must: (1) lead to a bachelor’s degree (or higher degree) in a school of engineering with at least one program
accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET); OR (2) include deferential 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. OR B. 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), 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)
examination, or any other written test required for professional registration, by an engineering licensure board in the various States, the District of Columbia, Guam, or Puerto Rico. 3. Specified academic courses – Successful completion of at least 60 semester hours of courses in the
physical, mathematical, and engineering sciences and that included the courses specified in A above.
The courses must be fully acceptable toward meeting the requirements of an engineering program. 4. Related curriculum – Successful completion of a curriculum leading to a bachelor’s degree in an
appropriate scientific field, e.g., engineering technology, 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. In addition to meeting the basic requirement above, to qualify for this position you must also meet the
qualification requirements listed below: Specialized Experience: One year of specialized experience which includes providing technical oversight and guidance in the development and sustainment of aviation and missile system software; facilitating the execution of the technical development; verifying, and fielding software solutions to aviation and missile systems; coordinating workforce planning efforts; leading a team in the full software life cycle execution; conducting milestone reviews; and collaborating with colleagues, agencies and other cross-functional areas to develop safe, secure, suitable software for aviation and missile customers. This definition of specialized experience is typical of work performed at the next lower grade/level position in the federal service (DB-03/GS-13). You will be evaluated on the basis of your level of competency in the following areas:
