CDIOTM Initiative
The CDIOTM Initiative was pioneered by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), together with leading engineering schools in USA, Europe, Canada, UK, Africa, Asia and New Zealand, to address the gap between industry needs and the quality of engineering graduates being produced.

Students are instilled with engineering fundamentals in the context of the whole product life cycle (Conceiving – Designing – Implementing – Operating), and are able to:
  • Master a deeper working knowledge of the technical fundamentals
  • Lead in the creation and operation of new products and systems
  • Understand the importance and strategic value of research work
Taylor’s School of Engineering is the first Malaysian University to be accepted into this prestigious collaboration, joining the ranks of elite institutions like MIT, Stanford University and University of Sydney.

CDIOTM Conferences and Trainings
The faculty and students participate in various conference and training events organised as part of the CDIOTM Initiative, which facilitate the sharing of best practices and knowledge exchange as well as networking among leading institutions.
