The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) is a not-for-profit membership organization founded to develop and disseminate the interdisciplinary principles and practices that enable the realization of successful systems. INCOSE is designed to connect SE professionals with educational, networking, and career-advancement opportunities in the interest of developing the global community of systems engineers and systems approaches to problems. We are also focused on producing state-of-the-art work products that support and enhance this discipline’s visibility in the world.

Vision

A better world through a systems approach.

Mission

To address complex societal and technical challenges by enabling, promoting, and advancing Systems Engineering and systems approaches.

Goals

  • To provide a focal point for dissemination of systems engineering knowledge.
  • To promote international collaboration in systems engineering practice, education, and research.
  • To assure the establishment of competitive, scale-able professional standards in the practice of systems engineering.
  • To improve the professional status of all persons engaged in the practice of systems engineering.
  • To encourage governmental and industrial support for research and educational programs that will improve the systems engineering process and its practice.
 

INCOSE has grown significantly since its formation in 1990 with a membership that represents a broad spectrum – from student to senior practitioner, from technical engineer to program and corporate management, from science and engineering to business development. Members work together to advance their technical knowledge, exchange ideas with colleagues, and collaborate to advance systems engineering.
