Dr. Mitchell Kerman, the newly appointed Director of Program Development and Transition at the Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC), has been selected as Stevens representative on the Corporate Advisory Board (CAB)/Academic Council (AC) of the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE).

Effective immediately, Dr. Kerman will succeed Dr. Arthur Pyster, Distinguished Research Professor in the School of Systems and Enterprises and the Chief Operating Officer of SERC.

“Mitchell has the perfect blend of experience, vision and knowledge, and his genuine passion for education and engineering are the precise qualities that will further the mission of INCOSE, and its academic community,” said Dr. Pyster. "With his deep understanding in developing high profile programs for Lockheed Martin and his long involvement with the US Navy, Mitchell is the ideal Stevens representative on the CAB/AC.”

“I am deeply honored and excited to be nominated as the voice of Stevens on the INCOSE platform. Following in the eminent footsteps of Dr. Pyster, my goal is to continue to help align INCOSE with the goals and objectives of the systems engineering academic community,” Dr. Kerman said. "The path forward is to collaborate with the best minds in academia, research and industry, and build and promote systems engineering solutions that are best-in-class and resolve real world challenges.”

INCOSE is the leading global organization focused on advancing the state of the art and practice of systems engineering in industry, academia, and government.

The CAB is the ‘Voice of the Corporate Customer’ for INCOSE, and members of the CAB reflect a tireless commitment to advancing the process, practice and science of systems engineering.

The AC is a university offshoot of the CAB, enabling the academic community to network, and create a platform for sharing and collaborating information on the best practices in the systems engineering arena.
