National Committee for Engineering Associates and Technologists

The National Committee for Engineering Associates and Technologists (NCEAT) represents the interests of the two occupational categories of engineering associate and engineering technologist.

The roles of engineering technologists and engineering associates are essential to the wider engineering team, which also comprises professional engineers.

NCEAT identifies strategies and makes recommendations to the Engineers Australia Board to address the specific needs of engineering associates and technologists. This includes a three-year rolling plan aligned to Engineers Australia’s strategic priorities.

In addition, the committee:

  • Liaises with and provides support to the college boards, divisions and technical societies about activities to support engineering associates and technologists.
  • Communicates with the cohort to identify their ongoing needs and direct them to the right people to help them.
  • Arranges events and other activities aligned to the NCEAT plan which might not be met through other channels.
  • Identifies common issues and liaise with Engineers Australia staff about resolutions.
