TEDI-London is an innovative new higher education provider in London wholly focused on engineering. It is co-founded by Arizona State University, King’s College
London, and UNSW Sydney.
TEDI-London’s vision is to transform engineering education to transform lives – both for students and for the users of the products they design and make.
Our mission is to attract and empower individuals and partners from diverse backgrounds and perspectives to develop the skills and confidence to create practical real-world solutions that advance how we live as a global community.
We will inspire, disrupt and transform.
TEDI-London will teach engineering differently – traditional lectures will be replaced with practical project work supported by an online
‘Learning Tree’ to develop the specialist skills needed to graduate as engineers. These projects will be real-life industry challenges and will be
co-designed and delivered with support from employers. The projects will be supported by one to one mentoring and group work.
The goal is to attract and empower a diverse cohort of capable students and give them the skills to solve contemporary challenges through a project-based learning programme.
