Tomorrow’s challenges won’t be solved by yesterday’s thinking. The great issues of the 21st Century will be answered by a new type of engineer. Globally focused, socially aware and from diverse backgrounds, the engineers of the future will work together to solve problems and improve lives. TEDI-London has been created to educate and inspire these engineers.
If you’ve these qualities and share our values of inclusiveness, courage, inspiration, collaboration and integrity, you’ll find this is an engineering education unlike any other.
A NEW TYPE OF ENGINEER FOUNDING THE FUTURE
WHY ARE OUR STUDENTS UNIQUE?
TEDI-London is the brainchild of three leading names in engineering education. Arizona State University, King’s College London and UNSW Sydney were already working together to tackle global problems as part of the PLuS Alliance when they saw need for more diverse, creative-thinking engineering students. TEDI-London was the answer.
These founders have given TEDI-London the best possible start in life. Dating back to 1828, King’s College London is one of the top 50 universities in the
world. Arizona State University gets ranked ahead of
MIT and Stanford for innovation in education. Indeed,
it’s a world leader in advancing the UN’s sustainability
goals around poverty, clean water, energy and
gender equality. And UNSW Sydney is a top-50 global
university with the world’s No 1 engineering faculty
according to the Times Higher and QS Rankings.
From different backgrounds and with
diverse experiences, our engineers all
look at familiar problems in fresh ways
and all want to make a difference.
As such, you could have studied any subject and
come from any academic background. What we
look for in every application is a combination
of Attitude, Aptitude and Ability. It’s about
more than technical brilliance. It’s also about
your initiative and what motivates you.
Many of our projects support the UN’s Sustainable
Development Goals: good health and well-being,
affordable and clean energy, climate action
and sustainable communities. Sharing these
values makes our students different, too
The TEDI-London programme will comprise the following compulsory (core) modules. There are no optional modules.
HOURS OF STUDY
WORKING WITH INDUSTRY
The following criteria is intended as a guide to help you gauge if TEDI-London is for you:
- If studying A Levels, IB, BTEC (or any post 16 education) you’ll be on track for approximately 120 UCAS points or equivalent
- If studying A Level Maths qualification (or equivalent) you should be on track to achieve a grade C
- No maths A Level? No problem. You can sit an online numeracy test instead.
- You will need to pass our Assessment Centre task and interview.
WE LOOK BEYOND ACADEMIC QUALIFICATIONS
We have designed an admissions process that allows students to demonstrate both their passion for engineering and their existing knowledge through a small project and interview process.
“The biggest reason why TEDI-London is so amazing is because from day one you’ll be doing something that will make a difference. You’ll be working on real-life projects in interdisciplinary teams to actually make a difference to the world.”
