Stevens Institute of Technology and the International Council on Systems Engineers (INCOSE) have signed an agreement that will streamline how Stevens graduate students and alumni can obtain INCOSE's Certified Systems Engineering Professional (CSEP) and Associate Systems Engineering Professional (ASEP) certification. Through the terms of the agreement, Stevens and INCOSE will collaborate to encourage and enable the certification of Stevens' qualified graduate students and alumni who are interested in pursuing certification as part of their academic and professional goals.
The program is open to Stevens' graduate students and alumni who have satisfactorily completed for academic credit the following four core Systems Engineering courses:
SYS 625 Fundamentals of Systems Engineering
SYS 650 System Architecture and Design
EM 612 Project Management of Complex Systems

Boot camp is a one-day event covering application submittal; cross-walk of Stevens core course content with INCOSE SE Handbook, ISO 15288 and EIA-632; and how to take the certification exam. Only those who will complete the CSEP/ASEP application process and take the exam within 1 year from the bootcamp should attend.
