college or university. 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 advanced courses 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);
(g) any other comparable area of fundamental engineering science or physics, such as
optics, heat transfer, soil mechanics, or electronics.
B. A 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
theoretical and practical understanding 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: 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.
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, Puerto Rico, and Guam.
3. Specified Academic Courses: successful completion in an accredited college or
university of at least 60 semester hours of courses in the physical, mathematical,
and engineering sciences and in engineering. These must have included the courses
specified in the basic requirement.
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 candidate has at least one (1) year of professional engineering experience acquired under professional engineering supervision and guidance. (The above examples of related curricula are not all-inclusive.)

In addition to meeting the basic entry qualification requirements, applicants must
have had one (1) year of specialized experience equivalent to at least GS-12.

Specialized experience is experience which is in or related to the line of work of the position to be filled and which has equipped the applicant with the specific knowledge, skills, and abilities to successfully perform the duties of the position.
