INCOSE: Understanding and Applying the INCOSE Systems Engineering Handbook

March 1 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm


The objective of the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) Systems Engineering Handbook (SEH) is to describe the state-of-the-good-practice for Systems Engineering (SE). It also serves as the basis for the INCOSE certification examination. The objective of this one-day tutorial is to provide an overview of the 2023 fifth edition of the SEH and explain how it can be used to plan, manage, and realize complex systems within the context of demanding business constraints. Participants are introduced to key SE terminology, concepts, and principles in the handbook. The participants will complete several exercises to solidify the concepts being presented. Each student will receive a complete set of lecture notes and an annotated bibliography.

All participants are asked to purchase or download a copy of the handbook from the INCOSE Store prior to class. INCOSE members can either download the digital version for free or can download a 55% discount code for the physical book from the INCOSE Store.

Note: This tutorial is an overview of the handbook and does not include the level of detail typically presented in an INCOSE Systems Engineering Professional (SEP) preparation course
