Warman Student Design & Build Competition

The Warman Competition is an annual event, typically held in September in Sydney, Australia. Year two engineering undergraduate students from the Asia Pacific, Australia, and New Zealand compete in the National Finals.

In the Malaysia campus, we run a campus-level competition in Semester 1. The winning team with a good working device will be sent to Sydney to compete at the National Finals. With the introduction of the Arduino (microcontroller) workshop in our design course, the quality and reliability of the devices build were improved tremendously.

In 2015, Mechanical Engineering students of Monash University Malaysia clinched a podium finish for their very first time as they emerged as the 3rd place winner of the 2015 Warman Competition National Finals in Sydney, Australia. Our 2017 team was placed 5th as the competition celebrates its 30th anniversary and brought home the Judges' Prize. The victory in 2019 was made even sweeter when our students hit a new record another podium prize as the First Runner Up.

With greater support and collaboration with our counterpart teams in Clayton and those who have participated in the competition from our campus, we hope to improve the student experience and network in the Warman Project. Through this activity, students are exposed to hands-on skills and are competitive at an international level. The Warman Competition was put on hold from 2020-2021 due to  Covid-19 but we had one perfect run during the 2022 competition which was held online with a total of 15 universities participating.
