The National Committee on Engineering Design

Welcome to the National Committee on Engineering Design homepage. The NCED is a committee of ENGINEERS AUSTRALIA which aims to further Engineering Design in Australia.

The National Committee on Engineering Design aims to promote design excellence and awareness through media of publications, conferences and both national and international exhibitions. Engineering Design addresses issues of creating and delivering innovative, useful, reliable and economical technical solutions to meet human wants or needs. One of our main objectives is to promote links between industry, and tertiary and secondary learning institutions for the strategic development of design learning and experience in all aspects of design.

The Warman Student Design-and-Build Competition is sponsored and funded by Weir Warman International and organised by the NCED. Now in its 25th year, the competition is an annual event for second-year students in the Mechanical Engineering courses at universities throughout Australia and New Zealand. The competitions main focus is on educational issues and identifying and encouraging the designers of the future.
