Chartered Australian Systems Engineer (CASE) Program

INCOSE facilitates the recognition of the following Systems Engineering competencies:

  1. Associate Systems Engineering Professional (ASEP) certification – for graduates wanting to be recognised as knowledgeable but without demonstrated experience.
  2. Certified Systems Engineering Professional (CSEP) certification – for professional systems engineering practitioners who have demonstrated knowledge and experience in many aspects of the discipline.
  3. Chartered Professional Engineering in the Systems Engineering area of Practice (CPEng SE), via mutual recognition agreement with Engineers Australia, for professional systems engineering practitioners who have attained CSEP.
    Further information including ASEP Applications and CSEP applications can be found on the pages linked to the right.

If you require further information, or have questions, relating to the ASEP or CSEP process please visit the INCOSE website.


Details provided here support becoming a Chartered Australian Systems Engineer (CASE) through achieving:
