What's different about NMITE's Engineers
NMITE Engineers are beyond work ready. Recruited to study at NMITE because of their grit, curiosity, passion and courage, they are individual thinkers who understand the details and the context in which they sit. Their lenses see systems and feel connections. They are challenged by (and relish) complexity. They love to adapt and are good at leading others through change. They are lateral thinkers with core hands on experience, and they are integrated. Not only with multiple engineering disciplines, but also with real world context and practicalities.
The details: All NMITE engineers have completed a 3-year accelerated MEng Degree in Integrated Engineering that gives them the work and life skills needed to become great engineers. Working via a “learn by doing” curriculum based on real-world challenges provided by our Partners, they develop significant skills in problem-solving, project management, communications, and collaboration. They understand that no challenge is single disciplinary and that every problem has important context and constraints. And, if you become a Partner, they will learn about and work with the unique opportunities and needs of your particular business and industry.
Communities of Practice
Interdisciplinarity is at the heart of NMITE’s academic programme and a fact of life in today’s world. We relish bringing together and collaborating with seemingly unconnected organisations who are faced with similar challenges. Whether it’s the MOD and a sports team looking at smart fabrics or organisations interested in the digital aspects of rural healthcare, the value of bringing together different perspectives looking for similar solutions is a key part of NMITE’s commitment to supporting our partners, our community and our learners.
