International Council on Systems Engineering

The International Council on Systems Engineering or INCOSE (pronounced as in-co-see) is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to the advancement of systems engineering and to raise the professional stature of systems engineers. Founded in 1990, INCOSE has over six thousand members representing a broad spectrum – from student to senior practitioner, from technical engineer to program and corporate management, from science and engineering to business development. Members work together to advance their technical knowledge, exchange ideas with colleagues, and collaborate to advance systems engineering.

The organization's mission is to advance the state of the art and practice of systems engineering in industry, academia, and government by promoting interdisciplinary, scalable approaches to produce technologically appropriate solutions that meet societal needs.

INCOSE is governed by a Board of Directors. Its technical activities are led by a Technical Board with oversight over thirty-nine working groups operating under seven technical committees focused on Education & Research, Modeling & Tools, Process & Improvement, SE Management, SE Initiatives, Standards, and SE Applications. It publishes periodicals, manuals and instructional materials; sponsors conferences; develops standards; and works to promote education and registration of systems engineers.
