INCOSE Academic Equivalency for Systems Engineering Certification Awarded to University of New South Wales
SAN DIEGO (May 10, 2019) – The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) is excited to announce the award of Academic Equivalency to the University of New South Wales (UNSW) for students to meet the knowledge requirement for the INCOSE Associate Systems Engineering Professional (ASEP) and Certified Systems Engineering Professional (CSEP) certifications. The University of New South Wales is the first university in Australia to be awarded the academic equivalency. INCOSE first awarded this academic equivalency in January 2019.
With this equivalency in place, students who demonstrate knowledge of systems engineering through approved coursework will not have to take the INCOSE Knowledge Exam to get certified. Knowledge demonstration is a mandatory part of the path to becoming an ASEP and CSEP, so this award is a great benefit for New South Wales University students.
“At INCOSE, academic equivalency demonstrates the strength of specific university systems engineering programs in meeting the knowledge requirements for systems engineering certification,” INCOSE President Garry J. Roedler stated. “It also shows the strength of universities working closely with INCOSE to embrace and evolve the requirements in their systems engineering programs toward meeting the accepted competencies for systems engineering. We have seen an increase in certification applications from Australia over the past two years, and this award will help us sustain that growth.”
