Welcome to our media centre

The New Model in Technology & Engineering (NMiTE) is Britain’s first wholly new purpose-built university in 40 years. Our role is to radically evolve the way engineering is taught to undergraduates.

Why?  Because Britain’s businesses cannot get sufficient graduates who combine great academic results with the essential leadership, employability and entrepreneurial skills that industry says it needs. 

Our teaching approach, successfully pioneered in America and elsewhere around the globe, is all about solving this problem and ensuring British industry has the right graduates it needs for future success.

KEY FACTS – New Model Institute for Technology & Engineering

We’re Britain’s first wholly new, purpose built university in 40 years

Our partners include the world leading  University of Warwick and Olin College of Engineering (USA)

We are located in the City of Hereford and will start building our campus in early 2017

We will be welcoming our first cohort of students in 2019 and expect to grow to 5,000 students over a decade

We will specialise in teaching engineering and produce high quality graduates employees in four interdisciplinary programmes: Feeding the World (Agri-Engineering and Food Production), Shaping the Future (Manufacturing and Advanced Manufacturing), Living Safely (Data and Resources Security), and Living Sustainably (Green, Renewable and Smart Living)

We’re shaking up how these subjects are taught by pioneering real-world problem based teaching methods that emphasise teamwork, design, communication, collaboration, inter-disciplinarity, and innovation to develop leadership and entrepreneurial skills as well as high academic standards
