Topic: Developing The New Skills a Systems Engineer Must Master

Abstract: The vision for the future of systems engineering is being shaped by the global context, societal and business needs, technology trends, and expanding applications and approaches. Tomorrow’s systems engineer must address new paradigms like agility, resilience, and model-based systems engineering, and incorporate new technologies, like data analytics, artificial intelligence, and cybersecurity.

Using the INCOSE Vision 2035 as a reference, this presentation will explore trends in systems engineering from the perspective of new skills a systems engineering must master. Approaches and resources for effectively learning these skills will be provided.
