Have you ever wondered what it would be like to help create and build a unique new university?
The New Model in Technology & Engineering (NMiTE) is being created to offer a new model of world quality, high value engineering education marrying a specialist engineering curriculum with design, humanities, and employability skills. We’re keen to transform engineering education and create a new generation of highly employable individuals with the engineering savvy, passion, and workplace skills and experience to tackle global problems and grasp the fantastic new opportunities this century has to offer.
Our teaching is reinforced by a new model of interacting with employers. From the day you arrive at NMiTE, you’ll be at the centre of a network of faculty, regional and global businesses, entrepreneurs and mentors. They’re here to provide a teaching experience that places real world problem-solving at its heart and that will give you the hands-on experience and confidence you’ll need to deliver the engineering solutions that will improve people’s lives – and make the planet a better place.
NMiTE won’t be for everyone. Our first students recruiting will begin in 2018 for admission in Autumn 2019.
But if you’re convinced you have a contribution to make, if you’re passionate about making the world a better place, whether your A Levels are in Maths, Physics, History or Philosophy, whatever gender you are, NMiTE will be the place to make your mark. Our first students recruiting will begin in 2018 for admission in Autumn 2019. We’ll also be looking for student co-developers to join our Design Cohort – to help us shape and test-run the university courses and operations in 2018.

Admissions will require good grades at A-Level or IB if applying from school. All applicants can expect additional requirements to UCAS applications procedures to include specified essays and interviews. All shortlisted candidates will be required to participate in a candidates’ weekend on site in Hereford, giving you a chance to get to know NMiTE – and NMiTE a chance to get to know you.
A model new to the UK? Yes. A model new to the world? NO! NMiTE is being created by a “collaboratory” of some of the world’s leading higher education institutions to create a unique, powerful, problem-solving and experiential approach to the teaching of engineering. This approach balances sound, high quality technical teaching with learning in design, communications, and humanities. The development of first-rate employability skills will be achieved by students working directly with employers throughout their course of study.
The NMiTE curriculum is designed to build knowledge enabled by critical thinking, analytical problem-solving, innovation, entrepreneurship, effective communication, work-readiness, business, team and leadership skills that all support rapid employability.
And, we want to bring the passion back to engineering.
We’re a totally new kind of university; here to find, equip and empower a generation of engineers to meet tomorrow’s business needs through creativity, design and innovation. Watch this space for news and updates in 2018
