INCOSE Certification Program academic equivalency

Graduates of the program can bypass the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) knowledge exam when applying for the Associate Systems Engineering Professional (ASEP) or Certified Systems Engineering Professional (CSEP) certifications. INCOSE is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to furthering education, research and advancement in systems engineering to solve the world's technical and societal systems issues. Course work meets Academic Equivalence standards recognized by the INCOSE Certification Program. This satisfies requirements for one of the ASEP and CSEP certifications. Speak to an advisor for more information.

Nondegree-seeking enrollment

Prior to acceptance into the program, you may enroll in up to 9 credit hours as a nondegree-seeking (in some cases, post-baccalaureate) student. Enrollment does not guarantee acceptance. Learn more about nondegree-seeking university student admissions.
