  • Project management experience and/or experience working as part of a multidisciplinary project team on assigned capital improvement projects.

In addition, the most competitive candidates will have excellent oral and written communication skills; the ability to make technical and non-technical presentations to both professional groups and lay audiences including board committees, other agencies, and the general public to present the results of studies and capital improvement projects; demonstrated project management experience; and a thorough understanding of electrical engineering principles, codes, standards, practices, and methods as applied to various functions that may include design, construction, installation, and testing of power distribution including medium-and low-voltage systems, motor control, process control, telemetry, automation, and electronically-based systems.  


The salary range for Associate Electrical or Control System Engineer positions is $10,455 per month increasing to $10,978, $11,527, $12,103, and $12,708 after 6, 18, 30, and 42 months, respectively. Starting salary may be at a higher level as commensurate to experience.
