TEDI‑London is a new higher education provider founded by Arizona State University, King's College London and UNSW Sydney.
TEDI-London opens in September 2021 and we will offer degrees in global design engineering.
As a society, we are on the cusp of a technological revolution that is changing the way we work, live and socialise with each other.
The increasing need for engineers in our ever-changing world has resulted in an estimated annual shortage of over 50,000 engineers in the UK.
To ensure our students are prepared and have the right skills employers want, we have been working with experts including representatives from the Royal Academy of Engineering, American Express, Network Rail, Makerversity, Infineon Technologies, and Waterman Group, to develop our curriculum.
Students will work on real-life projects from day one. These projects will be real-life industry challenges and will be co-designed and delivered with employers. The projects will be supported by one-to-one mentoring and group work.
A mixture of individual and group projects will allow students to develop teamwork, problem solving, project management and leadership skills in addition to developing their technical competence and critical thinking.
Projects will be developed around key themes or disciplines such as computing and robotics, smart cities, energy and sustainability. All students will undertake significant individual projects in years 3 and 4, that can be done in collaboration with industry.
The Learning Tree is TEDI-London's online matrix of networked topics and modules. We are creating a fully-equipped virtual study system that will allow students to seamlessly learn, share ideas and solutions, collaborate with other students and academics, be assessed, track their progress and explore their particular area of interest.
The online modules will give students the skills and knowledge they need for the projects they undertake and to support their developing interest in specific types of engineering. Students are expected to complete the online curriculum as well as the projects in order to graduate.
TEDI-London students will be expected to take responsibility for their own learning and the Learning Tree will support them in developing the knowledge and skills necessary to complete their projects successfully and graduate as professional, highly-skilled engineers.
The TEDI-London curriculum includes elements of design thinking, leadership, financial management and economics, as well as social sciences and philosophy. Ethics and its study will be interwoven into the online modules and the projects. Through the project management and collaboration skills gained on the hands-on engineering projects as well as the design, digital, business and communications skills gained through our online modules, students will develop a broader set of skills to prepare them for the engineering jobs of the future.
