A Student Division is comprised of a group of undergraduate or graduate students who wish to become actively involved in INCOSE while enrolled in an accredited course of study at a college or university. Student Divisions are operated as a component of a nearby chartered INCOSE chapter. In order for a Student Division to be created, it requires:
- A student body interested in becoming involved with systems engineering/INCOSE,
- A faculty member who is a member of INCOSE and willing to act as the Division mentor and liaison between INCOSE and the university, and,
- An active sponsorship and participation by a chartered INCOSE chapter.
