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.

SoSE from the SE Standards, INCOSE SE Handbook, and Dual V-Model Perspectives

System of Systems Engineering (SoSE) continues to be one of the most complex and least well-understood SE disciplines. Knowledge of the SE Standards, the INCOSE SE Handbook, and the Dual-V Model significantly aids this understanding, including the relationship between SE and SoSE, and helps apply them to SoS. The goals of this presentation are to: 1) define system, SE, SoS, and SoSE from the SE Standards and INCOSE perspectives; 2) describe the SE Standards, INCOSE SE Handbook, and Dual-V Model; 3) show how to apply them to SoS; and 4) encourage and challenge the participants to understand, select, tailor, and apply them to SoS. Individuals may have an understanding of portions of SE and SoSE based on other sources. The SE Standards, INCOSE SE Handbook, and the Dual-V Model provide a more complete and common understanding.
