REEdl is based on a world leading model of self-directed, project centric learning.  This approach uses Virtual Reality and Augmented reality (VR/AR) in supporting the education of student engineers along with access to world class research centers.

A REEdI Engineering programme is comprised of three core pillars surrounded by innovations in pedagogy, technology and the REEdI Ways of Thinking (REEdI-WoT), embedding excellence into programme design. The REEdI approach aims to be positively disruptive and transformative, with a vision to set the agenda for engineering education nationally.

Innovative methods of teaching and delivery will be promoted on this project, so that learners will benefit from improved quality and more engaging ways of learning on enterprise-focused courses, providing lifelong learning and upskilling opportunities for all.
