Professional Development
The difference between Professional Registration and Certification

One of the challenges for INCOSE UK members is to understand how best to develop their career as a professional involved in the discipline of Systems Engineering.

As a Professional Affiliate, INCOSE UK has an established pathway which provides a cost-effective route for Systems Engineers who are members of INCOSE UK to become Chartered Engineers (CEng) registered through the Engineering Council. The scheme also supports registration as an Incorporated Engineers (IEng) and EngTech.

Professional Affiliates are engineering institutions closely associated with, but not licensed by, the Engineering Council. They are influential and work to further the knowledge and understanding of a particular area or aspect of engineering and technology. INCOSE UK is able to offer their members the opportunity to become professionally registered via an agreement with a licensed institution.

The INCOSE Systems Engineering Certification Programme (established in 2004) offers three levels of technical certification for systems engineers (Associate, Certified Professional, Expert) and - depending on the level - includes an assessment of academic background, and validation of both knowledge and experience either through an exam and references, or formal interviews with experts.

If you are interested in developing skills and knowledge in specific systems engineering areas, there are a number of training courses and training providers available.
