After years of dreaming, planning, building and finding the right academics, NMITE (New Model Institute for Technology and Engineering) is about to open its doors to a Pioneer Cohort and deliver its different model of engineering higher education developing work-ready, talented engineers.
This group of changemakers who have chosen to study NMITE’s innovative Integrated Engineering Undergraduate Masters’ Degree (MEng), won’t be studying engineering, instead they will be learning how to become engineers as NMITE’s curriculum brings together the engineering disciplines and integrates the liberal arts and interpersonal skills needed by today’s employers to tackle the world’s problems.
As you know, NMITE prides itself on being that bit different so there’s not going to be a massive amount of pomp and circumstance but we wanted to plug the welcome week date: w/c 6 September in your diary and find out what would interest you most in terms of getting up to speed with what NMITE believes will be viewed as one of the most exciting developments in higher education in the UK for many years.
There will be welcome addresses from Professor Elena Rodriguez-Falcon, President & Chief Executive and Professor Beverley Gibbs, Chief Academic Officer, then the Pioneer Cohort will get stuck into the curriculum (no lectures, of course) and at the end of the month (September) the first Sprint and Employment Partner engagement will start.
Aside from that, though, what would you be interested in:
- A visit to NMITE to experience this unique way of learning in practice?
- An interview with Elena or Bev? or the founding director of Centre for Advanced Timber Technology (CATT, currently under construction)? Or with an employer partner?
- Time to talk with a Pioneer or two about joining NMITE and their early learning experience of having done so
We look forward to hearing from you.
