CEG/CSEG Program

   Certified in Engineering Graphics (CEG/CSEG)

The Certified in Engineering Graphics (CEG) program is designed to serve graduates of both 2-Year and 4-Year Programs. The exam is broad-based, and geared to individuals with a background in the expression of industrial design ideas through engineering graphics, including geometric construction, orthographic views, and standardized annotations. The exam is broad-based, geared to technical programs that result in either an associate (AS, AAS) degree or a baccalaureate (BS, BA) degree.


Certified in Engineering Graphics (CEG) is the initial certification status
awarded to eligible applicants. CEG status is ongoing upon annual dues payments. Reporting of continuing education activity is not required to maintain CEG status; CEG holders may report continuing education activity in order to qualify for Certified Senior in Engineering Graphics (CSEG) status. CEG holders who report 30 PDU may upgrade to CSEG status.

Certified Senior in Engineering Graphics (CSEG) is the higher-level "senior" status and is awarded to:

  • Eligible initial applicants with three years of post-graduate professional experience who have completed 30 PDUs of continuing education activity prior to their initial application for CSEG certification.


Continuing Education is Required for CSEG!

  • CSEG certification is renewable every three years and requires 30 PDUs of continuing education activity within each 3-year CSEG period to be eligible for recertification for another 3-year period.
  • CSEG holders who do not report 30 PDUs at the end of the 3-year certification will lose their CSEG certification.
