Message From The President

Welcome to the San Diego chapter of INCOSE, the world’s largest systems engineering professional organization. Our local San Diego chapter has over 150 members from a broad range of domains, to include (but not limited to) telecommunications, unmanned vehicles, biomedical devices, software systems, and Department of Defense programs. Our chapter is dedicated to assisting systems engineering individuals and teams tackle the complexity of today’s challenges. We all know that engineers must continuously learn new things, to obtain the knowledge and skills to stay sharp, focused and competitive. Our local organization promotes and facilitates this growth by providing monthly membership meetings, socials, tutorials, and conferences, plus networking with fellow systems engineers.

Finally, INCOSE also promotes future engineers via annual Science-Technology-Engineering-Math (STEM) fundraising and awards to local schools. Teachers are awarded small sums which are used to encourage students in the design and engineering of STEM projects. We top this off every year with a fun event for local K12 students where they can show their projects.

Please check our website for upcoming events – many events are free to all. We look forward to meeting you and to the knowledge you can bring to our organization.
