Collaborating with industry

As part of tackling ‘live’ projects, you’ll learn from experienced industry experts who will work with our tutors to help you develop the skills and experience you need to succeed in the workplace.

Regular industry interaction

You’ll be engaging with industry experts in a professional capacity from the very start of your programme. Meeting them during projects and masterclasses, rather than relying solely on internships or placements, will give you the opportunity to network and find out more about sectors in which you may want to work when you graduate.

Build a portfolio

Many of your projects will involve working in small teams to deliver a concept solution to a real client partner. Together, you’ll be responsible for managing the project from end-to-end; including research, identifying a problem statement, design ideation, prototyping, responding to design crits, and presenting your solution.

This allows you to build a portfolio of project experience and delivery, to present, reference and discuss at job interviews – helping you to stand out in the job market.

🌏 The industry is changing fast and 60% of the jobs that current engineering undergraduates will go on to have don’t exist yet. The ability to adapt to change is crucial, and our degree will help you prepare for this.

skills for the future

Our project-based learning approach is rooted in developing not only your technical, but also the broader skills fit for the workplace: communication, team collaboration, project management, commercial awareness and adaptability.

Our course content is also co-designed by industry professionals – who inform us on what is most needed in specific subject and project areas – to ensure that you’re well-equipped for the future of engineering jobs.

💡 Studying our general engineering degree means you’ll develop a broader set of skills across disciplines, so can be deployed across a range of projects – employers love that!

“TEDI-London’s project-based style helps students develop vital skills like collaboration. If a student understands how to work with others and recognise where different team members can add value, they’ll fit much more naturally into a work environment after graduating.”

Design Director, AKT II

Additional development opportunities

Professional student membership: We’re an affiliate organisation of the Institute of Engineering & Technology (IET) and the Institute of Engineering Designers (IED) which gives TEDI-London students membership and access to their related events and wider resources.

Signposted opportunities: Every student is given free access to ‘Handshake’ a modern career development platform which allows students and graduates to discover employers and job opportunities, submit applications, and attend career fairs and other events.

Employability & skills week: In year 1 and 2 there is a dedicated employability skills week with industry sessions throughout. This will cover areas like professional membership and the road to becoming chartered, plus interview and LinkedIn tips, to name just a few!

Students at Canada Water's development centre

Collaborating with British Land

Our founding industry partner, British Land, is a leading UK property company. They support our ambitions for an industry-led curriculum by delivering live projects and collaboration opportunities around their flagship Canada Water Masterplan. This will deliver a new high street and town square, where all buildings will support low carbon living.

🏙 This partnership means that throughout your studies you’ll get to work on innovative urban design projects that support the Masterplan and will have an impact on what the future of our local area will be like.
