Body of Knowledge and Curriculum to Advance Systems Engineering Project (BKCASE)


The BKCASE products continue to provide a living, shared and authoritative guide to the full scope of Systems Engineering Knowledge, becoming the most used reference in the world to guide systems engineering graduate education and systems engineering practice.

To work towards this vision, BKCASE created two closely related products:

Guide to the Systems Engineering Body of Knowledge (SEBoK)

A living, authoritative guide to the knowledge most relevant and important to the advancement of systems engineering.  SEBoK discusses what is included in the discipline, how this knowledge can be structured to facilitate understanding, and what documents are most important to the discipline.


grcse_logoGraduate Reference Curriculum for Systems Engineering (GRCSE®)

Curriculum guidance for systems engineering master’s program. GRCSE makes reference to sections of the SEBoK to define its core knowledge and suggests broader program outcomes and objectives that reflect aspects of the professional practice of systems engineering as discussed across the SEBoK.
