Applicants must meet the following qualifications requirements of
the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Qualifications Standards
Basic Requirement and GS-05 Requirement for Computer Engineer,
0854 or Electronics Engineer, 0855:
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 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); © 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.
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
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
Basic Requirement and GS-05 Requirement for Computer Scientist,
Degree: Bachelor’s degree (or higher degree) in computer science or
bachelor’s degree (or higher degree) with 30 semester hours in a
combination of mathematics, statistics, and computer science.
