Systems Engineering Body of Knowledge

The SEBoK is a globally recognised authoritative Body of Knowledge for the Systems Engineering community. It has been created by the Body of Knowledge and Curriculum to Advance Systems Engineering (BKCASE) project which has been jointly run by Stevens Institute of Technology and the Naval Postgraduate School using financial support from the US Department of Defense. The SEBoK has been created by an international collaboration of leading Systems Engineers.

With the first iteration of SEBoK recently completed it has been handed over to INCOSE and the IEEE to be made available as a world-wide, free to use for the Systems Engineering community.
