NMITE is built on the generosity and foresight of our Founders and philanthropy is embedded into our core.

More than 100 Founders contributed over £1million to help take the NMITE project from idea to reality. Without their valuable start-up capital and the confidence and support that came with it, NMITE would not be where it is today. The foresight and generosity of this group is a proud part of NMITE’s incredible journey.

Pioneer Fund Donors

NMITE is opening its doors to our first intrepid engineers – we call them the Pioneer Cohort. The members of the Pioneer Cohort will contribute fundamentally to NMITE’s ongoing development and are critical to our success going forward. Pioneers who are eligible will have their academic fees and basic accommodation costs fully paid for their first year at NMITE, thanks to the contributions made by our terrific Pioneer Fund DonorsWe are grateful for their generous support.
