Recently launched at the ICE’s London headquarters, The Future of Engineering (www.engineeringtv.org) is a comprehensive online hub that hosts a selection of exclusive, industry-related films, interviews and features.

As one of the leading voices in transforming engineering education, TEDI-London shares its insights and expertise in one of the initiative’s documentaries, entitled Putting the Smart into Cities.

The documentary (viewable at www.engineeringtv.org/putting-the-smart-into-cities) explores the ideas, innovations and individuals at the forefront of the development of sustainable, smart cities across the globe. Including commentary and analysis from a host of leading industry organisations, Putting the Smart into Cities addresses the present and future challenges of urban living, from transport and communications to the built environment, work and leisure.

The Future of Engineering also features a dedicated profile of TEDI-London and a film about its current ideas and operations, which can be found at www.engineeringtv.org/partners/tedi-london.

Professor Judy Raper, Dean and CEO at TEDI-London, says, “TEDI-London is unique because it's completely transformed engineering education. Our curriculum takes the fundamentals of an integrated engineering programme and delivers it in a completely different way. That delivery is part of a virtuous circle because we take diverse students who want to learn that way, and we provide better outcomes in projects through having diverse students.”

Addressing the smart city challenge, David Porter, Vice President of the ICE, says, “The ICE’s vision for the future is really embodied in the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals, and we work very hard to try and support the delivery of those. We need to deliver all those SDGs in a way that helps people and the planet to thrive.”
