Experiential learning

Bridging the gap between theory and practice is essential in training the future generation of engineers. Building on existing programs under the Centre for Entrepreneurship and Engineering Design, SEDTI provides experiential learning opportunities to every engineering program, so that thousands of students each year get to experience collaborative projects with industry and within multidisciplinary teams.
