Terry Fitzgerald

Terry Fitzgerald (CSEP) had started volunteering for the INCOSE Canada Chapter since Spring 2021 and was elected as President-Elect for 2023 and now assuming the role of President for 2024. I believe in the mission of the Chapter - to be a hub of systems engineering professionals and know-how within Canada and I look forward to working with the board, committees, members and the wider public to grow the craft of Systems Engineering within Canada.

Vice-President and President-Elect

Tony WuTony Wu

My name is Hai Tao (Tony) Wu. I’m a systems engineer with 10 years of experience in systems integration, design, modelling, testing & commissioning, and verification & validation. I started my career in software development and artificial intelligence research, then ventured into the realm of Aerospace engineering designing engine control systems, and currently pushing the implementation of MBSE for the successful delivery of major projects and programs in the rail and transit industry. Throughout my career, I can see how the practice of systems engineering has evolved and it’s getting recognized and widely adopted by different industries. Therefore, I’d like to become more involved in the community to influence, encourage and promote systems engineering to colleagues and young professionals alike through INCOSE, so that we can advance the boundary of systems engineering practice collectively.

Membership Director and Treasurer

Ivan TaylorIvan Taylor

As President and Senior Researcher at Policy Dynamics Inc., established in 2001, I have a Master's degree in Information and Systems Science and a Ph.D. in Public Policy. I have peer-reviewed for the Social Systems Issue of INSIGHT Magazine, and the INCOSE International Symposium. I have provided several presentations at INCOSE's International Workshop, Social Systems, and Resilient Systems Working Groups.

Technical Program Director

Ivan Rodrigues (P.Eng., CSEP) has been a member of INCOSE since 1997 and a CSEP since 2007. He has attended several INCOSE Annual International Symposiums and previously served as a SEP assessor. He has fulfilled various product development roles in the Defence, Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), and Cellular Communications industries, spanning the full V-model from use cases and requirements elicitation, through requirements derivation and analysis, to systems level architectural design, integration, and V&V. Further to his Mechanical Engineering degree, Ivan has completed graduate studies in Electrical Engineering as well as the MIT xPRO Architecture and Systems Engineering certificate program. He is currently the Senior Manager of Systems Engineering within Hexagon’s Autonomy & Positioning Division, where he and his team have developed world-class, IATF 16949, ISO/IEC 15288, ISO 26262 and ASPICE compliant SE processes, tools, best-practices, and an effective SE community of practice (SECoP).

Communications Director


Arman Nikkhah

I am a systems engineer with more than 7 years of experience in Automation, Robotics, Systems Design, Requirements Management and Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE). I started my career as a Mechanical Engineer working on Dynamic Modeling, Design and Control of Robotics Platforms and then continued my role as a Systems Engineer where I moved toward systems design, safety and reliability of various systems. I have Contributed to the implementation of MBSE for various projects in Robotics, Automation, Fuel Cell Systems, Rail and Transit.

Systems Engineering has evolved overtime and I would like to contribute to the INCOSE community by sharing knowledge and being part of the future transition to artificial intelligence systems engineering.


Pengzhou-LuPengzhou Lu

I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Master's degree in Control System at University of Toronto. I set up my career as a system design engineer in the industry of railway signaling. Specifically, I have been working for Thales Canada, Transportation Solutions since 2018. As an enthusiast of systems design and processes, I'd like to contribute and volunteer to the events of INCOSE Canada Chapter to support people to learn systems engineering and to improve the process for anyone who is interested to be certified as SEPs.
