Welcome! The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) is a not-for-profit membership organization founded in 1990 to develop and spread the interdisciplinary principles and practices that enable successful systems. We have grown to more than 19,000 members meeting in over 65 local chapters in over 75 countries which translates to boundless opportunities to network, learn and have fun.

As members we represent a broad spectrum – from student to senior practitioner, from technical engineer to program and corporate management, from science and engineering to business development. We work together to advance our technical knowledge, exchange ideas with colleagues, and collaborate to advance systems engineering. There are many exciting challenges ahead and we are glad you are joining us!

Below is an overview of INCOSE – our organization, available resources and opportunities for involvement. Use the links provided to learn more.
