The Chesapeake Chapter of INCOSE serves the systems engineering community in Baltimore, MD and its suburbs. INCOSE is an international professional organization dedicated to advancing the practice of Systems Engineering.
The Chesapeake Chapter is very active and prides itself in the many endeavors it has undertaken. An organization such as ours relies on the willingness of its membership to put as much effort into it as they receive in return. We enjoy a high membership renewal rate because the members are involved and receive value for their time and money. Consider being part of this thriving organization.
The Chesapeake Chapter is the Northern and Central Maryland area chapter of INCOSE, formed to support INCOSE in the expansion of systems engineering understanding, practice, definition, and evolution. In addition, the Chesapeake Chapter is responsible for the expansion of INCOSE through increased membership of both individuals and organizations. We will further the systems engineering effort through an aggressive approach to informing the local, national, and international systems engineering community of our highly professional organization dedicated to systems engineering excellence. We will respond to our stakeholders' needs with enthusiasm and will provide them with and/or develop the information that meets their specific requirements. We will focus on understanding and disseminating the changing role of systems engineering as we enter the 21st century. We will meet these needs through providing a forum and communications channel to exchange systems engineering information, questions, concepts, application to future technologies, etc. on a local level, providing a service that cannot be achieved at the national and international level.
The Chesapeake Chapter of INCOSE is proud to recognize the following organizations for sponsoring our endeavors to expanding the understanding and appreciation of Systems Engineering in the local area:
