CASE Development

Applicability

This component of the CSEP application is applicable to Professional Engineers that have not yet attained the experience necessary to fulfil the minimum requirements for completing CASE Pathway 2.

The following guidance provides resources to support gaining knowledge in Systems Engineering. Experience will need to be gained through practical application of this knowledge.

Guidance

Support for gaining Systems Engineering knowledge:

  • Systems Engineering training providers
  • Refer to SE Training providers links page.
  • CSEP preparation, including INCOSE SE Handbook knowledge exam training, support
    • Refer to CSEP Preparation providers links page.

Whilst in this stage you may pay the fee and apply for, and undertake the INCOSE SE Handbook Knowledge exam to gain, Associated Systems Engineering Professional (ASEP) certification by INCOSE.

To apply for ASEP, complete CASE Form 1a and submit to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Once sufficient experience has been attained, you may then pay the fee (ASEP to CSEP transition) and apply for CSEP through CASE Pathway 2.

ASEP certification will remain valid for a period of 5 years allowing time to gain the experience to pursue CASE Pathway 2.
