Note: If registered in another state, successful applicants will be required to obtain professional registration in the state of Oregon within six months of hire.

Additionally, driving is an essential function of this position. A valid driver license and an acceptable driving record are required for this position, including the under-fill option.

What we need for the associate in engineering 2 under-fill option:
Completion of and passing score on the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam and one year of experience applying professional engineering theory, principles and methods.

To be eligible for the associate in engineering 2 under-fill option, a candidate must have passed the professional engineer (PE) exam at time of application and the candidate must have their valid professional engineer's license (the ability to stamp) within six months of hire. As the PE exam is offered twice a year, in most cases, this will mean applicants must have already met all PE licensing requirements (e.g. completed required education and training, passed the FE and PE exams, etc.) and submitted their complete PE license application to the PE licensing body.
