For a better world, it takes an engineer.
It takes NMITE, it takes you.

We take sustainability and ethics seriously through every single one of our degree modules. Why? Because our students work on real-world problems. Problems that require the best possible solutions, and it's our job to teach them how!

As an NMITE student, you'll find out how to consider everything from materials and energy, to functionality. From impact and structure, to aesthetic. You'll learn exactly what you need to know, and how to apply it to modern problem solving. Employers require graduates with a multi-disciplined mindset and work-ready practical skills. They require NMITE engineers.

If you've been searching for an engineering degree that can provide you with the education and employer experience you need to make a difference (and fast!) - you've come to the right place.

Where in the world is NMITE?

New Model Institute for Technology and Engineering (NMITE) is based in the up and coming rural City of Hereford and plays host to some of the most talented independent businesses within the UK, as well as some big names within the engineering sector. Situated on the Welsh border, Hereford has a thriving food and music scene, is ideally located and accessible via many direct train routes. Hereford has the benefit of having not one, but two rivers flowing through the City, providing an abundance of water activities, pebble beaches and natural beauty. 

Where is NMITE?
Daniel James, Explorer Cohort

I enjoy working in an environment that has strong ties to industry, everything we do feels worthwhile and purposeful.

With the 9-5 learning, I have a far better work-life balance than many of my peers who are studying in traditional higher education.

My current experience of NMITE has been amazing. It feels great to be part of such a new and exciting organisation where I feel appreciated and listened to.

Daniel James, January 2022 Cohort
Natasha Tait, January 2022 Cohort

For the first time since possibly my primary school, I’m excited to come in every day and learn. NMITE has exceeded my expectations, not only in their teaching but also in how active they are in seeking out feedback from students and acting on that feedback.

With the way NMITE’s course places a heavy emphasis on applying knowledge practically, I feel confident that I’ll be more than work-ready when I graduate.

Abu, member of the Pioneer Cohort

To me NMITE is a blend of academic life and working in the field. I would say it’s reflective of the workplace whilst also keeping connection with the academic side of things. The course opens your eyes to look at the world from multiple perspectives.

Abu-Huraira Ishfaq, September 2021 Cohort
Kim, member of the pioneer cohort

I like how the MEng course is structured, it feels like I’m coming to work because you study 9 to 5 and you have the project sprints to keep you really focused - You are constantly learning.

Kim Pickett, September 2021 Cohort
NMITE Blackfriars Campus

Can’t recommend NMITE enough!

My son is doing the MEng & absolutely loves it.

The highly stimulating course taught by superb professionals, Hereford as a beautiful safe city and the supportive colleagues and staff.

Anyone looking for a modern, pioneering, alternative way to study engineering should definitely look into this. Don’t think you’ll be disappointed!

    Student Life

    Coffee with friends, or late nights exploring. Cocktails (or mocktails) and laughter till morning. White water rafting, live music, performance arts... Hereford; it's a City that's small, but a City no less that does have it all!
