  • Strong mechanical aptitude and familiarity with aspects of mechanical, civil and electrical engineering. 
  • The ability to support the RFP process, read technical specifications and develop technical writeups for proposals. 
  • Fluency with MS Office applications (Excel, Word), MS Project Scheduling and Acrobat.
