Detroit, MI – University of Detroit Mercy’s College of Engineering & Science recently received The International Council of Systems of Engineering (INCOSE) award on Academic Equivalency for the INCOSE Associate Systems Engineering Professional (ASEP) and Certified Systems Engineering Professional (CSEP) certifications.
With this equivalency in place, students who demonstrate knowledge of systems engineering through approved coursework will be credited as passing the INCOSE Knowledge Exam, which is  a mandatory step toward ASEP and CSEP certification. This award represents an important new benefit for University of Detroit Mercy students.
“At INCOSE, academic equivalency demonstrates the strength of specific university systems engineering programs in meeting the knowledge requirements for certification,” INCOSE President Garry J. Roedler said. “It also shows the strength of universities working closely with INCOSE to embrace and evolve the requirements in their systems engineering programs towards meeting accepted competencies. With the positive relationship that the University of Detroit Mercy has with the automotive industry, this should help us strengthen the application of systems engineering to the automotive domain.”
INCOSE first awarded this academic equivalency in January 2019. For more about INCOSE, please visit For more about Detroit Mercy’s College of Engineering & Science, visit
