Specialized experience must demonstrate the following:1) Experience applying knowledge of principles, theories and practices of chemistry, metallurgy, and materials science and/or materials engineering.2) Experience applying knowledge of the design and operation of ships, their systems, and components sufficient to provide expert advice and guidance.3) Experience applying knowledge of chemical and material test methods/procedures, test specifications, testing documentation methods, and interpretation an analytical testing results.4) Experience managing a technical laboratory to plan and direct professional scientific work.5) Experience applying knowledge of Federal laws, Navy/DOD regulations, and guidelines pertaining to environmental analysis laboratory’s third party accreditation requirements, quality control methods, and auditing.Additional qualification information can be found from the following Office of Personnel Management website:#url=List-by-Occupational-Series AND refers to paid and unpaid experience, including volunteer work done through National Service programs (e.g., professional, philanthropic, religious, spiritual, community, student, social). Volunteer work helps build critical competencies, knowledge, and skills and can provide valuable training and experience that translates directly to paid employment. Education Basic Requirements:A. Degree: Engineering. To be acceptable, the program must: (1) lead to a bachelor’s degree in a school of engineering with at least one program accredited by 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); (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.ORB. 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)1, or licensure as a Professional Engineer (PE) by any State, the District of Columbia, Guam, or Puerto Rico.
