Teaching Faculty

TDSI selects our pool of talented lecturers based on their many years of relevant working experience. The university collaborates with industry experts and scientists who have implemented large-scale national projects to share their superior knowledge to the students. Our professors are able to relate concepts and theories with applications, as well as work on real-life case studies with the students.

Going beyond our well-grounded academic structure, professors also act as mentors to encourage active interactions and intellectual debates between teammates. Students are constantly challenged to think critically, dissect theories, and to overcome inter-disciplinary boundaries when developing solutions.

With direct access to some of the world's best professors amidst an international cohort, we expose our students to multi-perspectives in a diverse, dynamic and multi-cultural learning environment. In TDSI, we nurture graduates to be boundary breakers and systems builders.
