    They're part of it, are you?

    Our students come from all walks of life, from all over the UK, and each with their own story to tell. 

    You might come from a traditional academic background, or have previous experience in industry. You might have A-level Maths and Physics. You might not. And you might have started your journey on what you thought was the right career path, before discovering engineering, and NMITE. Perhaps you even began your studies at a more traditional university, found it wasn't right for you, and now want to switch to our unique hands-on learning model.

    No matter where you've started, we aim for you to graduate on a level playing field and to be fully prepared for your future career.

    Challenging the status quo

    We’re changing the engineering landscape head-on - deliberately breaking down stereotypes of all shapes and sizes to build a more inclusive world. That means we're actively seeking to develop talented individuals from all different backgrounds and heritages to help diversify and strengthen the engineering sector. The NMITE community, simply put, is built differently.
