Why study Engineering at TEDI-London?

A new and innovative institution, TEDI-London is a great place to earn an Engineering degree and launch a career in one of a variety of exciting roles.  

Engineering has always been an extremely in-demand role. From building skyscrapers to machine design and overseeing public works projects, an Engineering degree gives you valuable skills that can set you up for a stable career across the globe. 

Read on to find out why you should study an Engineering degree at TEDI-London.

Get job-ready 

At TEDI-London, you’ll be working on real-life projects from day one. There aren’t any lecture halls on its London campus; all learning here is practical, interactive, and encourages you to develop your teamwork skills.  

With excellent facilities at your disposal, such as 3D printers and large-scale equipment, you can experience tackling a range of industry challenges. Your degree is led by practising industry experts and emphasises problem solving, project management, and leadership skills.  

That is why, at TEDI-London, you’re considered an Engineer-in-Training, not a student. The degree you study is directly linked to actual Engineering tasks, so you’ll be job-ready by the time you graduate.  

Live in the world’s #1 student city 

You’ll experience living in London — ranked as the world’s #1 student city for five years in a row (QS Best Student Cities 2023). It’s a buzzing, multicultural place, with over 250 languages spoken across the city (Vivid Maps). Whether you prefer shopping, relaxing in beautiful parks, or visiting historical attractions like Buckingham Palace, there’s always something to enjoy. 

TEDI-London’s campus is in Canada Water, right next to the River Thames. This means you’ll have excellent transport links to attractions across the city. All kinds of first-class museums, shops, food courts, and sports venues are just a short train ride away! 

Backed up by years of prestige 

TEDI-London was founded by three prestigious international universities: Arizona State University, King’s College London, and UNSW Sydney. So, despite being a new institution, the curriculum is informed by decades of high-quality Engineering experience.

While being supported by established institutions, TEDI-London has also built its own industry links. These connections mean you’ll work with partners such as Network Rail and British Land, as well as Chartered Engineers from renowned institutions like the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).

Along with these universities and industry partners, TEDI-London is guided by the PLuS alliance. This means you’ll practise globally responsible engineering — a vital skill for the future.  

Benefit from an inclusive admissions process  

TEDI-London welcomes students from a diverse range of backgrounds. You won’t be judged solely on the subjects you’ve studied and the grades you achieved. Instead, you’ll be assessed holistically to see if you fit the institution’s culture and have the potential to become a top Engineer.  

Your offer will be based on a small project, presentation and interview, giving the admissions team a broader view of what you’re like as an Engineer. And if you haven’t studied Mathematics or Physics before, don’t worry! You’ll be able to take an admissions test or study a short refresher course to help you get up to speed.

Get an unconditional offer for further study at ASU

Studying at TEDI-London is truly an international experience. In fact, if you graduate from the BEng Global Design Engineering degree with a 2:2 or higher, you’ll receive an unconditional offer to study a master’s programme at ASU! Choose from:

  • Engineering, MEng, studied online
  • User Experience, MS, studied on campus

Depending on which subject you choose, you could be eligible to stay in the USA and work for up to three years with Optional Practical Training.
