The Course

This is where change begins.

What you'll learn

During a series of 3.5 week-long Sprints, you’ll study five main pillars of engineering, spanning multiple disciplines, to become confident at using a range of different engineering concepts and practice bringing them together using whatever the situation demands. These engineering specialisms will give you a solid grounding on which to analyse problems and create solutions and, in each pillar, you’ll show your understanding by applying your learning alongside an industrial or community partner.

How you'll be taught

In addition to Sprints, our Toolboxes will equip you with all the skills you need, like drawing, teamworking, programming, communication, certainty, management and business, creativity and design. Working in small teams, similar to the real workplace, you will integrate all of your engineering and toolbox skills to work on substantial community-based challenges with local organisations at the end of each level of study. 

By combining your engineering expertise with what you’ve learned in the toolboxes, along with your experience in numerous challenges and projects, and in Community-based Challenges, you’ll be ready to create solutions, add value, and make a change.

You’ll be supported throughout the course to master not only the mathematical tools needed to be a safe, accurate and efficient engineer, but also the engineering knowledge and work readiness skills needed to apply all of your professional determination upon graduation.

How you'll be assessed

We believe that your assessment should be as reflective of a real workplace as possible and that means no traditional exams. Instead, our assessments take the form of in-studio quizzes, presentations and debates, display of artefacts you’ve developed and built, industrial reports, development of specifications, test reports and project plans, creative media presentations, journal papers and ‘white papers’ and general question and answer sessions where your participation and knowledge can be assessed.

What this means for your employability

A distinctive feature of the NMITE MEng is the integration of our Partners into every stage of learning. Our model of working on real-world challenges brings you into contact with employers of varying sizes and from a multitude of sectors including security, health, energy, sustainability, food production and infrastructure, working on projects that enhance their business. 

Each step of the way through your NMITE journey, your work will be done in partnership with industry, guaranteeing that the learning taking place is not only up-to-date, but reflects a real engineering environment. This interaction with many partners will allow you to build an extensive network and demonstrate your engineering ability to a wide range of future employers. 

Our partners 

  • Provide practical expertise and knowledge 
  • Provide real-world challenges 
  • Provide resources for learning environments 
  • Host student projects

Details about NMITE

NMITE is registered by the Office for Students (Ofs) as an English Higher Education Institution (HEI). Our registration means that we have met the same rigorous requirements as all other Universities/HEIs, including those of the Quality Assurance Agency and our validating partner, The Open University

It is NMITE's intention to apply to have the MEng Integrated Engineering accredited with a professional engineering institution, but such an application cannot be made until the MEng's first students graduate. The course has been designed to meet the educational requirements for MEng for CEng.
