INCOSE Academic Equivalency Recognized for Naval Postgraduate School
SAN DIEGO (19 April 2021) – The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) is excited to announce the award of Academic Equivalency to the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) for students to prove their knowledge of systems engineering through their SE3100 course. The Naval Postgraduate School draws talented military officers from around the world, bringing exceptional individuals into the systems engineering practice. INCOSE awarded this equivalency in January 2020.

With this equivalency in place, students who demonstrate systems engineering knowledge through approved coursework will not have to take the INCOSE Knowledge Exam to certify. This knowledge demonstration is key in the CSEP journey, so this equivalency is highly beneficial to the Naval Postgraduate School students.

Kerry Lunney, INCOSE President stated “Collaborating with the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) to establish the academic equivalency to the INCOSE systems engineering handbook is highly beneficial to all. For most participants in the academic equivalency from NPS who already have work experience in systems engineering, it is a good stepping stone towards obtaining their CSEP qualification. For INCOSE and NPS it demonstrates a great partnership.”
