About Us

The National Committee on Engineering Design (NCED) 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 Weir Warman Student Design-and-Build Competition is sponsored and funded by Weir Warman International and organised by the NCED.

Now in its 26th year, the competition is an annual event for second-year students in the Mechanical Engineering courses at universities throughout Australia and New Zealand.
