My vision as President of INCOSE Canada is to Collaborate with members of the Canada Chapter to help members develop and prosper in the practice of systems Engineering. I will engage with other INCOSE Chapters in creating and offering programs, webinars, conferences and working groups as a resource for all to advance their vocational competencies. There is also work to be done within the INCOSE Canada Chapter to streamline processes and procedures to run the Chapter effectively. At a time when all organizations are wrestling with digital transformation, the Canada Chapter must embrace thought leadership and the compelling imperative to bring together all members across Canada.
Greetings! My name is Terry Fitzgerald (CSEP) and I have volunteered for INCOSE Canada Chapter in an unofficial capacity for 18 months now. Since I started, I have developed our incose.net website, maintained our LinkedIn group, organized Zoom meetings and helped to run this Chapter election. I am passionate about MBSE and applying system science to systems engineering. If elected Vice President I will work with the board and committees to improve membership engagement by advocating for regular CSEP certification clinics, localized face-to-face meet-and-greets, reading groups, reach out to Canadian academia and Industry to speak on systems engineering topics and elevate the Chapter to be a center of systems engineering excellence in Canada. Thank you!
My name is Hai Tao (Tony) Wu. I’m a systems engineer with 10 years of experience in systems integration, design, modelling, testing & commissioning, and verification & validation. I started my career in software development and artificial intelligence research, then ventured into the realm of Aerospace engineering designing engine control systems, and currently pushing the implementation of MBSE for the successful delivery of major projects and programs in the rail and transit industry. Throughout my career, I can see how the practice of systems engineering has evolved and it’s getting recognized and widely adopted by different industries. Therefore, I’d like to become more involved in the community to influence, encourage and promote systems engineering to colleagues and young professionals alike through INCOSE, so that we can advance the boundary of systems engineering practice collectively.
If I’m elected to be the next communications director, I will not only continue the usual communication on important news and notices to our members, but also work with the Technical Program Director and Membership Director to promote our technical meetings, conferences, workshops, seminars and courses to wider professional communities and students so that we can raise the awareness of systems engineering and INCOSE in both industrial and academia environment to encourage more people to participate and join our profession. I will also work with the Webmaster to leverage existing recourses to deliver better and more efficient communications between the board of directors, the Council, and our members.
