Many congratulations to our client NMITE (New Model Institute for Technology and Engineering) which has confirmed that it is now accepting registrations from potential students having received validation from The Open University. Its Pioneer Cohort of 50 students will start in March 2021 on its MEng in Integrated Engineering and will have their academic fees and accommodation costs covered in full for the first year thanks to a host of supporters and partners.
Run by a fantastic group of people, led by the amazing Professor Elena Rodriguez-Falcón
NMITE is an interesting story. The idea for a new higher education institute in Hereford was initially proposed by local MP Jesse Norman, an idea that then got picked up and run by a group of people including Karen Usher a founding Trustee of NMITE.
NMITE can now address the UK’s shortage of work-ready graduate engineers with its focus on an integrated engineering programme to train and nurture learners ready to tackle global challenges – such as sustainable food production, access to safe water, and clean energy – which do not fall neatly into traditional mechanical, electrical or materials engineering boxes.
Engineers-in-training will experience NMITE’s “learning by doing” with regular real-life projects and no lectures or traditional exams and unlike other engineering institutions they will not be required to have a Maths or Physics A-level as these subjects will be taught within the curriculum. NMITE is looking for entrepreneurial and socially-minded individuals who want to change the world for the better. As part of the admissions process, NMITE will be evaluating a person’s attitude, mindset and passion for engineering alongside their qualifications.
