The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) has introduced INCOSE Canada as the organization’s newest chapter led by Chapter President David Morris.
“By promoting professional development through training and certification opportunities, INCOSE Canada looks forward to educating and connecting systems engineers on an academic and industry-wide level,” said David Morris.
With 70 chapters overall, INCOSE is dedicated to connecting systems engineering professionals with outstanding networking opportunities while producing state-of-the-art products to discover solutions for today’s social and technical problems.
In addition to these goals, INCOSE Canada aims to facilitate the formation of local INCOSE branches throughout Canada and encourage their involvement. As a national chapter, INCOSE Canada will focus on advocating for the increased professionalism and breadth of use of systems engineering in industry, academia and the federal government.
Over a career of 38 years, Morris has wide experience in the engineering of land, sea and air projects in the UK Ministry of Defence, industry and Canada’s Department of National Defence (DND). First as a naval architect, then a systems engineer and systems engineering manager, Morris oversaw construction, modernization, and regulations of the government’s systems including submarines, SAR aircraft, frigates, and multiple role replenishment ships. He is also a member of the Society of Naval Architects and Engineers.
Morris will be joined by fellow INCOSE Canada officers Vice President Michael Meakin, Secretary Liviu Dancea and Treasurer Philippe Krutchen. INCOSE Canada has selected Daniel Amyot as director of programs, Steven Gibbon as director of communications, and Derya Marquette as director of membership.
