A Message from the Council President
Welcome to the IEEE Systems Council website!
We are an international community of 20 IEEE member societies and over 22,000 individual participants who share a common interest in systems engineering and systems thinking. Our goal is to engage the worldwide technical community in a full spectrum of professional development including publications, conferences, technical committees, special interest groups, distinguished lectures, short courses, networking, and other activities that are valuable for career advancement. To celebrate excellence, we present awards to individuals or groups in recognition of exceptional achievements or significant contributions in our fields-of-interest. We also conduct interesting and engaging activities for student members and young professionals at conferences, local chapters, and student branches; and offer merit-based scholarships for undergraduate and graduate student members. I encourage you to explore the SysC website to learn more about the valuable products and services that SysC provides to help you grow professionally.
IEEE members can join SysC as participants at no cost. Participants can collaborate on research, network with colleagues, and stay current on news and events. Go to the IEEE membership catalog or follow this link to join.
