About us

TEDI-London is a new design-led engineering higher education provider co-founded by Arizona State University, King’s College London and UNSW Sydney.

TEDI-London is based ten minutes from major transport hub London Bridge, in an area earmarked for an exciting urban development project – the Canada Water Masterplan. With a bold vision to transform engineering higher education, TEDI-London is a specialist, teaching-led organisation focussed on student aspirations, experiences and development. Our mission is to train future engineers.

Academically grounded yet practical in nature, our flexible, project-based approach will empower students to become independent, socially aware, curious learners, with a global and future-focussed outlook. An emphasis on discovery, creativity and partnership with industry will equip our students with the skills and experience necessary to tackle the challenges of the 21st Century and forge a successful, rewarding career in one of the most dynamic, innovative and diverse of disciplines.

TEDI-London will:

  1. Establish a new engineering school in London that specialises in creating socially aware and globally focussed engineers with a distinctively strong design and entrepreneurship skillset.
  2. Attract and empower a highly diverse body of students, giving them the skills to solve complex contemporary challenges, while providing employers with job-ready graduates through a flexible learning programme.
  3. Offer a curriculum co-designed and co-delivered by employers.
  4. Offer a culture and pedagogy that puts the employability of students first.
  5. Be located within a commercial and public sector eco-system in the centre of London.
  6. Establish over time a student population with gender balance and a 50:50 domestic/ international mix.


Joining us will provide you the unique opportunity to be part of an innovative start-up and push boundaries in the Higher Education Sector.

We want the people who work with us to reflect our ambitions for our students. We are keen to attract a diverse mix of candidates who, above all, share our passion to be different, creative, innovative, and curious about what we are trying to achieve. You will want to try new things and not be afraid to learn from the experience. You will want to collaborate with colleagues – both locally and globally. Continuous development and improvement are part of your DNA.

Who are you?

You have always wanted to do things differently but the size of your organisation, history or internal politics mean you can’t make the necessary changes quickly to take advantage of developments in the world around you.

You might have an engineering background, no teaching experience – but can actively demonstrate the passion and the potential to be a great teacher.

You might work in a professional service or relevant role elsewhere – not necessarily Higher Education and would really relish the opportunity to design and develop your role, your function and organisation.

You might work in a traditional Higher Education setting and have a drive to be part of something different.

We are developing our proposition as an employer and you can be part of shaping our culture, our values and our future as an organisation.

We are already clear – all our employees are of equal value and status, whatever role you do.

Recruiting under Covid 19 restrictions

We know we are at a critical point across the economy here in the UK and elsewhere; this is certainly true within Higher Education. We are in touch with our colleagues and our network across the sector and are acutely aware of the challenges both financially and with regard to learning that they are experiencing. It is unprecedented for us all.

Additional ways for candidates to engage directly with recruiting managers and members of our wider TEDI-London team have been incorporated into the recruitment process to ensure a smooth and engaging candidate experience.
