The MITRE Institute Systems Engineering (SE) Capability Enhancement Project (SECEP) committee, along with more than 150 MITRE systems engineers and technical experts, built this competency model to help MITRE staff enhance our strategic capability in systems engineering. This model reflects MITRE’s brand of systems engineering, which is a “government view and approach” to systems engineering. In our independent partnering role as an FFRDC, we take the government’s view and support its needs. Contractors would have a somewhat different systems engineering competency model than the one described here. MITRE’s Systems Engineers generally become systems engineers by two mechanisms: 1) They may start their career in a deep technical specialty and broaden their system view over the years as they take on more project responsibilities; 2) They may be trained in systems engineering through either academic or corporate related education. In either case, on the job work experience is a critical requirement for becoming a good systems engineer.
