About Us

The primary role of the NCSpE is to act as an expert advisory committee to Engineers Australia on space engineering matters, and promote the economic, industrial and intellectual value that developing and retaining Australian expertise in space technology can have.

Consistent with Engineers Australia’s Strategic Priorities 2014 – 17, our primary objectives are:

  • To provide the Definitive Voice of the Profession through contribution to national space policy issues on an as-needs basis.
  • To support EA as a Professional Home for Life by recognising outstanding emerging space engineers through the annual Undergraduate Thesis Prize in Space Engineering, and providing up-to-date information on the Australian space engineering sector via the NCSpE web pages.
  • To support EA’s International Orientation through membership of the International Astronautical Federation, and particularly by supporting the 2017 International Astronautical Congress to be held in Adelaide, South Australia.
  • To foster Tomorrow’s Engineers and raise awareness of space engineering by sponsoring national student education and outreach activities related to space engineering.
  • To build Connectivity and Partnerships through engagement with kindred space-related organisations.

We are affiliated with Engineers Australia's Electrical College and our members come from industry, research and government.
