3 Sep 2015By solving how swans keep their heads steady during flapping flight engineers have developed a camera suspension system that allows drones to produce crisper video images.
National Committee on Engineering Design
The NCED is a committee based within the College of Mechanical engineers of ENGINEERS AUSTRALIA which aims to further Engineering Design, particularly in the broad ‘mechanical’ area, in Australia.
The National Committee on Engineering Design aims to promote design excellence, focused on the mechanical technological area, 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 jointly funded by Weir Minerals Australia Ltd and Engineers Australia and is organised each year by the NCED. Now in its 28th year, the competition is an annual event for second-year students in the Mechanical Engineering courses at universities throughout Australia and New Zealand. The competition’s main focus is on educational issues, particularly creativity, and identifying and encouraging the designers of the future.
