Engineer

Want to learn about life as an engineer with the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA)?  Great!

As an engineer at DCMA, you’ll be working with the very latest in technologies related to defense systems, weapons, and advanced warfighting equipment.  If this sounds exciting, it is–you’ll be in the thick of producing everything America’s military needs.

About the only thing you won’t be doing is designing things.  While the product design work is done by Defense contractors, your contribution is essential, serving as DoD’s eyes and ears during the entire procurement process.  From initial design to final production, you’ll use your engineering skills to make sure the government gets what it pays for.

Our men and women in uniform rely on us for delivery of quality state-of-the-art products.  In vital situations, the most important factor is performance.  That’s why, at DCMA, we focus on excellence from start to finish–reviewing designs for feasibility, monitoring prototypes, participating in every stage of production and testing.  Through it all, we work closely with our DCMA Contract Specialists to ensure the work is done in accordance with the terms of the contractual agreement.

With projects underway all over the United States and around the world, there are plenty of opportunities for travel and even relocation.  And because DCMA is committed to continuing education, career growth and advancement are a big part of the picture.

In most cases, an engineering degree from an ABET accredited college or university is required; for more specific information on educational requirements, please carefully review our vacancy announcements.  You will need excellent verbal and written communication skills as you will be interfacing with customers and reporting on contract progress on a regular basis through briefings and/or written reports.

Every day, you will apply your engineering knowledge to programs that benefit the brave men and women who defend our country.  It’s a fantastic feeling!
