Products & Publications

The International Council on Systems Engineering proudly offers its free weekly and monthly web-based service to the greater Systems Engineering community.

Once a week, the INCOSE Technical Operations Training Working Group presents the INCOSE Systems Engineering Handbook V4.0 Tutorial series over a six month period beginning in October.

Once a month, INCOSE Technical Operations presents recognized experts in the field who discuss the "State of the Art" in Systems Engineering.

These presentations occur live, via the internet. Each lasts one hour, and includes the opportunity for attendees to submit questions to the presenter. We record the webinars and INCOSE members can access these recordings from the Member's Only pages of INCOSE Connect.

Please access the INCOSE Connect Library for a complete library of TutorialsWebinars and Recordings sponsored by INCOSE Tech Ops, Chapters and Working Groups including the Training Tutorial Webinars.

Webinars Qualify for PDUs

INCOSE Certified Systems Engineering Professionals can claim 1PDU credit towards their re-certification by attending a webinar or watching a webinar recording. To qualify, a CSEP must have attended through at least 75% of the webinar for webinars that last less than one hour, or through 45 minutes of the webinar for webinars that last for 1 hour or longer. Attendees of INCOSE webinars who have other professional certifications or licenses may find that these webinars can apply to the PDU requirements for re-certification or license renewal.

All times listed are UTC. Please convert the time to your own timezone to determine when it will be presented in your local time. Please be careful to account for daylight savings time.

Upcoming Webinars

Additional webinars will be announced on the home page INCOSE News and Events as soon as they are confirmed.  We are always looking for new topics. If your company would like to sponsor a webinar, if you have an idea for a webinar or would like to present one, please send an e-mail with your suggestion to the webinar coordination team.

Please join us Friday May 17th at noon CDT for the INCOSE Natural Systems Working Group Community of Practice Webinar. Our guest presenter is Marc Weissburg, Co-director of the Georgia Tech Center for Biologically Inspired Design(CBID).  We will also introduce you to the INCOSE Natural Systems Working Group.
Georgia Tech's CIBD ( brings together a group of interdisciplinary biologists, engineers and physical scientists who seek to facilitate research and education for innovative products and techniques based on biologically-inspired design solutions. The participants of CBID believe that science and technology are increasingly hitting the limits of approaches based on traditional disciplines, and Biology may serve as an untapped resource for design methodology, with concept-testing having occurred over millions of years.  Experiencing the benefits of Nature as a source of innovative and inspiring principles encourages us to preserve and protect the natural world rather than simply to harvest its products.  CBID is committed to training the next generation of interdisciplinary professionals: The 21st century engineer is an inventor who is equipped with core strengths in engineering, but is also able to speak the language of biology and utilize its structures, processes, and principles. The 21st century biologist is a naturalist who is able to team with engineers and physical scientists to examine biological structures, processes, and systems in terms of evolved solutions to problems and as sources of engineered designs.  The 21st century architect is a designer who turns to the natural world for inspiration as to function, form, material and ecological footprint.
Topics to be covered:
v  INCOSE Natural Systems Working Group
v Georgia Tech CBID - an introduction  
v The instructional process and applicable knowledge/skills of acquired by Georgia Tech graduates
v Relevant research areas available through the Georgia Tech staff
v Enabling search and AI tools (
v Conclusions and Questions
Speaker Biography:
Marc Weissburg is a Professor of Biology and Co-Director of the Georgia Tech Biologically Inspired Design. He received his Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the State University of New York, Stony Brook. Located in the Environmental Science& Technology (ES&T), his research interests are: 1) Chemical ecology: chemically-mediated orientation and guidance in marine invertebrates, behavioral strategies for orientation in relation to fluid flow in aquatic environments; and 2) Sensory ecology and physiology: sensory physiology of chemo- and mechano-perception in marine crustaceans, development of chemosensory systems, neuroanatomy of crustacean chemosensory and mechanosensory systems, signal structure and transmission of chemical and fluid mechanical signals. He has been teaching biologically-inspired design and studying the pedagogy of teaching this design methodology for the past 8 years, for groups ranging from middle school children, engineering and biology undergraduates, to professional scientists and engineers.
