Classification Standard

 

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF CLASS SERIES

 

Incumbents of these positions apply their knowledge of the mathematical, physical, and engineering sciences in several specialty areas.  They provide the full range of professional engineering services including consultation, evaluation, planning, systems design, engineering surveys, or project oversight in order to ensure work conforms to accepted engineering standards.   They supervise and evaluate the work of subordinate professional engineers and technicians in engineering projects from design to completion and assure that work performed complies with established policies, procedures and program objectives.  They analyze existing conditions concerning environmental factors affecting public health and safety, and direct projects for the construction, extension, alteration, remodeling, and maintenance of roads, buildings, bridges, public and private water and sewer systems, for electrical and power supply systems, industrial safety systems, fire protection systems and environmental remediation systems.   

 

These positions are classified in several State agencies, although the majority of positions are in the Office of General Services, the Department of Transportation, the Department of Environmental Conservation, and the Thruway Authority.

 

DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTICS            

 

          PROFESSIONAL ENGINEER 2 (ALL PARENTHETICS): first supervisory level; under the general direction of higher level staff, supervise subordinate licensed professional engineering and technical staff; plan, direct, and review major projects, indicating by their seal that work conforms to accepted engineering standards; and serve as head of an engineering section.  Positions may be assigned to serve as the principal assistant to a higher level professional engineer responsible for an engineering program in a region or responsible for a statewide engineering program.  For any assignment, incumbents supervise at least two teams headed by Professional Engineers 1 (Various Parenthetics) engaged in a wide variety of engineering activities, performing the full range of supervisory duties including approving leave and tracking time and attendance; identifying staff development needs; evaluating staff performance; and completing performance evaluations.

 

RELATED CLASSES

 

          Professional Engineers 1 (all parenthetics) independently perform the full range of engineering services, are licensed, and typically indicate by their seal on project plans that work conforms to accepted engineering standards and/or review and comment on an engineering submittal whereby the comment or approval letter must be under the signature of a licensed professional engineer.

 

Professional Engineers 3 (all parenthetics) are characterized by their predominant assignment to function as assistant director or director of an engineering program, managing projects that span different geographic areas.  They administratively supervise multiple engineering sections headed by Professional Engineers 2 (all parenthetics) engaged in a wide variety of engineering activities.
