About REEdI

REEdI will transform the way we deliver undergraduate engineering education in Ireland. The project is a collaboration between the Munster Technological University and the University of Limerick.

Building on the success of world-leading cutting-edge models of engineering pedagogy, we combine an innovative method of curricula design, content delivery utilising new immersive technologies and student access to world class Science Foundation Ireland research center’s to deliver a transformative programme of self-directed and self-scheduled learning for the next generation of engineers. This affords a wealth of advantages in undergraduate engineering education provision. Our approach aims to be positively disruptive and transformative.

The REEdI consortium are experts in eLearning, smart manufacturing, industry 4.0, AI, Industrial-Internet of Things (iIoT), Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR), and best practise in engineering education innovation and reform. REEdI was co-developed with manufacturing industry leaders, national and international leaders in the field of Engineering Education, leaders in work-based placement models and world class research centers. The team have a wealth of experience in delivering multi partner industry/ HEI linked projects on time and within budget. MTU Kerry as the lead partner, has proven capability, and a strong track record with regards to repeat industry collaboration projects. Therefore, there are strong networks, relationships and communication channels in place to drive REEdI into the future.

What they say…

PROJECT LEADS

“Employers require access to Engineering Graduates with the right blend of practical, technical and professional skills to ensure that talent does not become a significant barrier to growth for their businesses; through the work and vision of REEdI, we aim to set the agenda for Engineering Education regionally and nationally. We will do this by championing equality, diversity, student centred and student directed approaches to learning, bringing in significant elements of eLearning, work-based learning and innovative technologies such as Virtual and Augmented Reality to provide an immersive learning experience; all to create the next generation of Engineers for our region and our Island”
