MANUKA, ACT, Australia--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--With a growing need for skilled systems engineers in Australia, Systems Engineering Society of Australia (SESA) has brokered an agreement between the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) and Engineers Australia (EA) to develop a dual path for certification, called “Chartered Australian Systems Engineers” (CASE). The agreement was announced in time for the INCOSE International Symposium, set for 15-20 July 2017 at the Adelaide Convention Centre in Adelaide, Australia.
“Critical to the successful delivery of complex projects, the practice of systems engineering is experiencing explosive growth in Australia – and is fundamental to the overall growth of the Australian economy and its operation within an international context”
According to Alan Harding, president of INCOSE, the new designation comes at an important juncture for the systems engineering profession in Australia – especially since there is a shortage of experienced systems engineers in this country.
A systems engineer works in a wide variety of fields and is known for an ability to look at both the larger picture and how the individual components work together.
“Critical to the successful delivery of complex projects, the practice of systems engineering is experiencing explosive growth in Australia – and is fundamental to the overall growth of the Australian economy and its operation within an international context,” said Harding. “With the increasing demand for more technically integrated products and systems, systems engineering is poised for fast growth and provides a strong career path – with opportunities to build or master new skills – making the CASE agreement a crucial industry milestone.”
Ray Hentzschel, president of SESA – INCOSE’s Australian chapter, noted that the agreement is especially significant as it marks “the first time systems engineering is being formally recognized as a practice area by the peak body, Engineers Australia.”
