INCOSE Academic Equivalency Awarded for Systems Engineering Certification for Cornell University

SAN DIEGO (May 3, 2019) – The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) has presented Cornell University with an Academic Equivalency for students to meet the knowledge requirement for the INCOSE Associate Systems Engineering Professional (ASEP) and Certified Systems Engineering Professional (CSEP) certifications. INCOSE first awarded this academic equivalency in July 2018. Now that this equivalency is in place, students who demonstrate knowledge of systems engineering through approved coursework will not have to take the INCOSE Knowledge Exam to get certified. There are 130 students who met requirements in Fall 2018 who are now eligible to become ASEPs or CSEPs upon meeting the other certification requirements.

“At INCOSE, we are pleased to have the Systems Engineering Certification Academic Equivalency in place with Cornell University,” INCOSE Garry Roedler stated. “Academic equivalency demonstrates the strength of specific university systems engineering programs to meet the knowledge requirements for systems engineering certification. 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.”
