Please read the BKCASE Newsletter

rickREAD THE BKCASE NEWSLETTER.  Hopefully, all INCOSE members received an email last week with a link to the BKCASE newsletter.  BKCASE stands for Body of Knowledge and Curriculum to Advance Systems Engineering.  It is responsible for two things:  The SE Body of Knowledge (SEBoK) and an associated Graduate Reference Curriculum (GRCSE).  This is a special edition of the regular update we send to those involved, or interested, in the BKCASE project each month.  In it you will find articles and updates on the project and links to our website (  On the website you can find information on the history of the project, our current activities and how to get more involved.  This is a one off mailing and you will need to subscribe if you want to continue to receive the newsletter.

I became involved in BKCASE in 2009 along with a number of others from the UK and other EMEA chapters of iNCOSE.  In 2012 the projects original funding ended and its products became jointly supported by INCOSE and IEEE. In January 2013 I became the BKCASE Editor in Chief.  In this volunteer role I work with an international Editorial Board to manage the continuing evolution of the SEBoK.  A growing number of UK members contribute to this, directly and through the INCOSE working groups  If you would like to learn more, are considering getting involved or think your company might be interested in helping to sponsor this work, please READ THE BKCASE NEWSLETTER.
