One year of journey-level technical engineering experience. A bachelor’s degree in engineering, mathematics, geology, physics, chemistry, computer science, or a closely related field may be substituted for one year of the required experience. College-level coursework in engineering, computer-aided drafting or mathematics (algebra, geometry, or trigonometry) may be substituted for up to six months of the required experience on the basis of one semester or quarter-length course for two months of experience.

Special Requirements: Possession of a valid California Class C Driver License (upon appointment) is required for some positions.
