Honolulu District, Oahu
Office of Facilities and Operations - Facilities Development Branch, Building Inspection Planning Services Unit
Supervises the professional and nonprofessional personnel of a major engineering activity; develops procedures and standards for carrying out specialty in the organization and represents the organization with authority on technical engineering matters within the area of specialization; may direct a large engineering section or assist in directing a large engineering division or district office as a technical specialist in planning, development, design and/or research, may lead the efforts of a team engaged in carrying out difficult or critical project assignments with emphasis in the area of specialization; or serves as a staff specialist responsible for overall control and coordination of a number of major and complex engineering projects or programs; and performs other duties as required.
Applicants must meet all the requirements for the position they are seeking as of the date of the application, unless otherwise specified. Unless specifically indicated, the required education and experience may not be gained concurrently.
Note: Calculation of experience is based on full-time, 40-hour workweeks. Part-time experience is pro-rated. Example: Twelve months of experience at 20 hours/week is equivalent to six months of experience, not one year. Also, hours worked in excess of 40 hours/week will not be credited. Example: Twelve months of experience at 60 hours/week is equivalent to one year of experience, not one and a half years.
Minimum Qualification Requirements:To qualify, you must meet all of the following requirements :
Basic Education/Experience Requirements:
All applicants must meet one of the requirements specified in A, B or C below:
A bachelor's degree from a school of engineering from an accredited four (4)-year college or university.
Note: For some positions, graduation from an accredited college or university with a degree in physics, mathematics or chemistry may be accepted as qualifying, provided the applicant has had at least 15 credits in engineering sciences, common to all engineering disciplines, e.g. thermodynamics, statics, electrical science, applied mechanics, engineering drawing, strength of materials, etc.
Administrative, professional or technical experience involving the application and knowledge of the fundamental physical and mathematical sciences underlying professional engineering including physics, chemistry, mathematics through integral calculus and engineering sciences such as statics, dynamics, strength of material, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and engineering drawing and other specialized courses to one of the branches of engineering. Such experience must be substantially equivalent to the knowledge and understanding gained by completion of a college training leading to a Bachelor's degree in engineering; or
A combination of college training in engineering and experience mentioned in B above substantively equivalent to completion of a college training leading to a Bachelor's degree in engineering.
Engineering Experience Requirements:
Four (4) years of progressively responsible professional engineering experience which required the knowledge and application of the basic physical and mathematical sciences and the engineering sciences to the solution of theoretical or practical engineering problems.
Examples of qualifying professional engineering experience are as follows:
The development and design of machines, equipment, structures or power, water, communication or transportation systems and facilities or the preparation of development, design or construction specifications for such materials or systems, involving the use of theoretical and applied mechanics, a knowledge of the properties of materials and other appropriate engineering and scientific knowledge and skills.
Original research in one or more branches of engineering, developing engineering applications of physical and other scientific principles.
Administration of engineering programs and projects, involving analysis of requirements for equipment and materials, study of technical feasibility and cost, selection of approach and direction of problem solution.
Interpretation of systems operational requirements in terms of physical facilities and the design and development of standard procedures for efficient operational use or maintenance of such facilities.
Evaluation, investigation or survey of engineering projects, structures, devices or services.
Such activities as production, construction, regulation and testing, when they involve engineering considerations and decisions as important and controlling elements.
Note: In some situations, experience which is not of itself clearly professional engineering experience may be accepted in lieu of "professional" engineering experience. In such cases, the experience must have been preceded by prior "professional" engineering experience and must contribute directly and significantly to the candidate's professional engineering competence. For example, an engineer may be assigned to a management or a computer systems analysis position in preparation for assumption of higher-level responsibilities in engineering administration.
For the Engineers IV, V and VI levels, at least one (1) year of the required engineering experience must have been experience comparable to the next lower level.
Supervisory and/or Staff Advisory Experience Requirement:
For the VI level, one (1) year of Supervisory and/or Staff Advisory Experience.
Supervisory Experience: Professional engineering experience which included training subordinates, coordinating and assigning workloads, evaluating performance, assisting in difficult and problem areas and maintaining high standards of work and timely accomplishment of work objectives.
Staff Advisory Experience: Professional engineering experience as technical expert in a specialized area or program function performing staff advisory, consultative and/or reviewing the work of a staff of specialist assigned to such activities as long-range planning, research and/or development of specific projects, programs, etc.
For the VI level, professional engineering experience which included the planning (including budget planning and justification), organizing, staffing, policy formulation and implementation of same and directing a program providing staff services and/or assistance.
Quality of Experience:
The required amount of experience will not in itself be accepted as proof of qualification for a position. The applicant's record of experience and education must show that applicant has the ability to perform efficiently the duties of the position.
Substitution of a Master's Degree in Engineering for Engineering Experience:
A Master's degree in a pertinent engineering field from a school of engineering in an accredited college or university may be substituted for one (1) year of engineering experience.
Substitution of Supervisory, Staff Advisory Experience or Administrative Experience for Engineering Experience:
Excess Supervisory, Staff Advisory or Administrative experience of the type and quality described above may be substituted for engineering experience on a year-for-year basis.
Substitution of Administrative Experience for Supervisory, Staff Advisory Experience:
Excess Administrative experience of the type and quality described above may be substituted for Supervisory or Staff Advisory experience on a year-for-year basis.
Professional License Requirement: For the Engineer IV and higher levels, applicants must possess a current, valid Hawaii State Certificate of Registration as professional engineer.
Driver's License: Applicants will be required to have a current, valid automobile driver's license.
