Positions range from performing a variety of routine engineering tasks designed to provide experience and familiarization with engineering methods, practices, and programs with a high level of support, to independently evaluating, selecting, adapting, and modifying standard techniques and criteria in order to plan and conduct engineering assignment.

  • General Engineer I - Performs a variety of routine engineering tasks designed to provide experience and familiarization with engineering methods, practices, and programs. Works under the guidance and direction of an experienced engineer; assignments screened for unusual or difficult problems and techniques; or procedures to be applied to the solution of problems will be selected by an experienced engineer or the supervisor. Provides professional engineering support within allocated task resources. Performs limited portions of engineering tasks under the detailed direction of an experienced engineer. Applies commonly used equations and techniques to evaluate and solve assigned problems or systems. More specific requirements for Electronic, Mechanical, Network and Software positions follow.
  • General Engineer II - Performs routine work requiring application of standard techniques, procedures, and criteria in carrying out a sequence of related engineering tasks. Provides professional engineering support with increasing independent accomplishment. Assignments are screened for unusual or difficult problems; receives close supervision on new aspects of assignments. Duties and responsibilities include: performs specific and limited engineering tasks of a broader assignment under the direction of an experienced engineer; prepares computations, specifications, and reports of limited scope and complexity; applies standard practices and techniques in specific situations; and may be assisted by a few support personnel.
  • General Engineer III - Independently evaluates, selects and applies standard engineering techniques, procedures, and criteria, and makes minor adaptations and modifications. Provides independent and professional support on portions of complex projects. Specific assignment objectives, approaches, and possible solutions are reviewed for accuracy and completeness.
