NMiTE Integrated Master’s Programme:
Integrated Engineering (MEng)
The NMiTE Accelerated Master’s in Integrated Engineering is a novel, forward-looking degree that seeks to break the mould in engineering education with an innovative, student-centric learning methodology and a curriculum fuelled by real-world challenges. The degree is designed to respond to the changing nature of professional engineering, modern understanding of effective teaching and learning, and the need for engineers to have a deep appreciation of both technical and non-technical topics.
The programme will equip graduates with:
- Coherent and detailed engineering knowledge acquired through challenge-based learning in the context of real-word engineering problems.
- An ability to integrate, synthesize, apply and gain knowledge, both engineering and non-engineering based, to solve complex and novel problems.
- An ability to communicate appropriately and effectively, recognizing and accommodating the needs of varied technical and non-technical audiences.
- Experience of and the abilities needed to work in teams, exercising initiative and personal responsibility, acquired as a result of the focus on the extensive challenge-based group learning within the degree.
- Knowledge and understanding of the economic, social, ethical and environmental context of engineering, gained through learning and interacting with employers and the community as an inherent part of the teaching philosophy.
- The ability to approach and solve open-ended, complex and novel design problems with creativity, imagination and technical robustness, gained through extensive individual and team design project work.
Essential to the educational approach of NMiTE is engagement with industry, NGOs and community groups to source projects that facilitate challenge-based learning. NMiTE is actively engaged with a range of relevant stakeholders to support this ambition through appropriate partnerships. Contributions are of various types and include: co-developing modules; equipment contributions; sharing facilities; teaching on modules; providing project placements; and financial contributions.
