IEEE International Systems Conference Networking Event
1 Rideau Street
Ottawa, ON K1N 8S7
Are you an undergraduate or graduate student? Have you graduated in the last few years? Are you interested in a career path revolving around “the big picture” or the systems you work on, viewing the system as a whole?
Local systems engineering professionals are also invited! We are offering a unique opportunity to meet, learn from, and network with, the systems engineering community.
Come join us for a networking event with the many national and international experts that will be attending the IEEE International Systems Conference 2014 (SysCon2014) in Ottawa. IEEE Systems Council and IEEE Young Professionals Ottawa will be holding a reception at the conference venue, the Fairmont Château Laurier, followed by an information session about systems engineering. More details about the conference at http://ieeesyscon.org.
Attendance at the networking session is free of charge. To complement this networking event, we offer reduced-price access to the conference on the day of the event. The cost is particularly low for students!. Conference sessions on the day of the event cover topics such as:
– Control Systems
– Machine Learning
– Service Systems
– Engineering Processes for Complex Systems
– Systems Reliability
– Systems of Systems

Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary field of engineering, focused on the design, management, and analysis or complex engineering projects and systems over their entire life cycle. Systems engineering is applicable to many disciplines of engineering and is sometimes regarded as a discipline in itself. This field deals with issues such as robustness, reliability, safety, maintainability, manufacturability, risk management, requirements management, and more. An understanding of the systems engineering approach is important in all engineering disciplines and work in this field is rewarding, challenging, and exciting. An information session that will be held following the networking reception will give attendees the opportunity to learn about some of the foundations of systems engineering, in a nutshell, and have your questions answered.
