Join us for an introduction to the happenings of INCOSE working groups. What are INCOSE Working Groups and what do they do? The are groups of INCOSE members who focus on a specific area of systems engineering, so to create products, present panels, and help develop and review international standards pertaining to the subject area. The WG members are distributed, communicate via email and teleconference and meet in person at INCOSE international conferences. Your time spent is also fully creditable as Professional Development Units (PDUs) to INCOSE certifications (ASEP and CSEP).

There are 47 working groups within INCOSE! You can surely find one that’s right for you. Please see the full listing HERE.
