A better world through a systems approach

The International Council on Systems Engineering proudly offers its free weekly and monthly web-based service to the greater Systems Engineering community.

Once a week, the INCOSE Technical Operations Training Working Group presents the INCOSE Systems Engineering Handbook V4.0 Tutorial series over a six month period beginning in October.

Once a month, INCOSE Technical Operations presents recognized experts in the field who discuss the "State of the Art" in Systems Engineering.

These presentations occur live, via the internet. Each lasts one hour, and includes the opportunity for attendees to submit questions to the presenter. We record the webinars and INCOSE members can access these recordings from the Member's Only pages of INCOSE Connect.

Please access the INCOSE Connect Library for a complete library of TutorialsWebinars and Recordings sponsored by INCOSE Tech Ops, Chapters and Working Groups including the Training Tutorial Webinars.

The materials presented here are the professional opinions of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the opinion of INCOSE. Use of these presentations are limited by the author’s copyright. Contact information for the authors is usually found in the presentation or video.

Webinars Qualify for PDUs

INCOSE Certified Systems Engineering Professionals can claim 1PDU credit towards their re-certification by attending a webinar or watching a webinar recording. To qualify, a CSEP must have attended through at least 75% of the webinar for webinars that last less than one hour, or through 45 minutes of the webinar for webinars that last for 1 hour or longer. Attendees of INCOSE webinars who have other professional certifications or licenses may find that these webinars can apply to the PDU requirements for re-certification or license renewal.

All times listed are UTC. Please convert the time to your own timezone to determine when it will be presented in your local time. Please be careful to account for daylight savings time.

Upcoming Webinars

Additional webinars will be announced on the home page INCOSE News and Events as soon as they are confirmed.  We are always looking for new topics. If your company would like to sponsor a webinar, if you have an idea for a webinar or would like to present one, please send an e-mail with your suggestion to the webinar coordination team.

INCOSE Webinar: "Helix - Understanding What Makes Systems Engineers Effective"
Date:  19 November 2014
Time: 15:00 UTC/ 11am EST
Presenter(s): Dr. Arthur Pyster
General Webinar Details: Webinar 69

Helix - Understanding What Makes Systems Engineers Effective Helix is a multi-year research project of the Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC) that is developing a theory of what makes those who perform systems engineering effective. To support that research, Helix has, so far, collected and analyzed extensive interview data from more than 160 systems engineers. During this talk, Dr. Pyster will present results of the Helix Project to date, including an early version of the model that explains what impacts the effectiveness of systems engineers plus an analysis of the education background of more than 2000 applicants to the INCOSE Systems Engineering Professional Certification Program.  
Dr. Arthur Pyster has more than thirty-five years of experience as a successful executive, researcher,
engineer, educator, and manager in government,
industry, and academia. He has created, delivered,
acquired, overseen, or operated numerous leading
edge systems and technologies in telecommunications, aerospace, defense, air traffic control, and information technology domains and led software and systems engineering workforce development efforts in both industry and government.
Currently, he is a Distinguished Research Professor at Stevens Institute of Technology, Chief Operating Officer of the DoD Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC), and INCOSE Director for Academic Matters. Among his previous positions, he was the INCOSE CAB Chair, Senior Vice
President and Director of Systems Engineering and Integration for SAIC, and Deputy Chief Information Officer and Chief Scientist for Software Engineering at the US Federal Aviation Administration. In recent years, he has managed projects that created the Systems Engineering Body of Knowledge, Graduate Reference Curriculum for
Systems Engineering, and Graduate Software Engineering 2009: Recommendations for Graduate Programs in Software Engineering.
Currently, he leads the Helix Project, which is creating a theory of what makes systems engineers effective to be used by organizations and individuals to inform workforce development of systems engineers and personal career decisions, respectively.
Dr. Pyster earned a doctorate from Ohio State University in Computer and Information Sciences and is an INCOSE Fellow.
