Britain’s first purpose-built Engineering university
26 March 2019
The New Model in Technology & Engineering (NMiTE) aims to secure university status and become Britain’s first wholly new purpose-built university in 40 years.
Its 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.
Its 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.
It aims to be Britain’s first wholly new, purpose built university in 40 years and its partners include the world leading University of Warwick and Olin College of Engineering (USA).
It’s located in the City of Hereford and building the campus is now underway as it will be welcoming the first cohort of students in 2019 with expected growth of around 5,000 learners over a decade.
It will specialise in teaching engineering and producing graduate employees equipped with the qualities demanded by today’s engineering employers. The MEng degree will be attained in three (46 weeks) years rather than four and teaching will centre on real-world problem based methods that emphasise teamwork, design, communications, collaboration, inter-disciplinarily, and innovation to develop leadership and entrepreneurial skills as well as high academic standards.
