ENGINEER II – ELECTRIC LINE:

PURPOSE OF POSITION:

Under the general direction of the Manager-Electric Line Engineering or designee, performs moderate scope engineering duties necessary for the completion of the department’s goals.  Works on smaller projects and portions of more complicated projects. Some work will be performed with minimal oversight while other work will be performed under the mentorship of various experienced engineers.  Progression towards increasingly autonomous work performance will be expected as experience is gained in electric line design.  Duties will be dependent upon departmental workload and may include any or all of the duties described below.


QUALIFICATIONS:

Education and Experience:

An electrical engineering degree from a school with a program accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology is required.  A minimum of three years of electric transmission and/or distribution design experience, OR four years of recent progressively responsible applicable engineering design experience is required.  


In lieu of an electrical engineering degree, consideration may be given to individuals with an engineering degree in another discipline with Missouri Professional Engineering (PE) certification, and a minimum of five years of recent progressively responsible design experience and an interest in acquiring the training and experience necessary to perform increasingly complex Electric Line design tasks. Note:  a BSEE degree is required to obtain the Engineer IV level.
