Membership Details

At present we have 1000+ individual members, having started with 50 at our inaugural event at Shrivenham in September 1994. Members come from diverse backgrounds covering purchasers, system developers and academics. Industries represented include aerospace, automotive, defence, transportation, construction and telecommunications. A goal for the UK Chapter is to achieve a steady and sustained increase in the number of members, and to further broaden the base of that membership to include new industries.

If you undertake tasks which are characterised by the interaction of multiple factors across multiple domains, often exhibiting less obvious behaviour, you're either doing or need to be doing some Systems Engineering, and INCOSE exists to help you.
