The Engineering & Design Institute (TEDI-London) is brought to you by three global heavyweights in higher education: Arizona State University, King’s College London, and UNSW Sydney.

TEDI-London was founded to address the critical shortage of engineers worldwide and enhance the quality of engineering graduates with the right mix of technical, social, and contextual skills to tackle the challenges of the Sustainable Development Goals and change people’s lives. Targeting a more diverse cohort of students than traditional engineering degrees, TEDI-London aims to attract and empower socially aware and globally focussed engineers through its innovative, industry informed and project-based curriculum.

From its founding in 2019, through to starting up with an inaugural cohort in September 2021 and welcoming the second cohort in September 2022, TEDI-London continues to push boundaries and challenge the norms in engineering education.
