Are you cut out for our Pioneer Cohort?
NMITE will have a new way of educating. Our approach will range across disciplines and integrate deeply with creativity and design – delivering work-ready graduates that employers and industry desperately require. Future students will ‘learn by doing’ via a curriculum that has been co-created with industry and the community to meet the engineering demands of the 21st century.
NMITE hopes to open its doors to 50 Pioneers (subject to Validation) as the first cohort of students. During 2020/21, we will then be aiming to have 250 students based at NMITE as part of a distinctive and innovative movement in Higher Education.
We will be looking for
- People from a range of backgrounds who have a passion for creativity, innovation and ‘problem solving’
- Resilient ‘future engineers’ who have the grit and perseverance to flourish in a challenge-based environment
- Highly skilled communicators, instinctively curious, agile and scholarly in their approach
- World citizens who are socially aware with a strong appreciation of both the context and the implications of their work, both locally and globally
If you have a true interest and passion for engineering and want to find out more about our proposed new model of education in a small rural city then look no further. Accelerated programmes offer better value for money, and our close links with industry will support a course that will enhance key employability skills that the engineering industry says current graduates are lacking.
By working on projects and real world engineering challenges throughout, our future students will gain professional skills including effective team working, communication, presenting, taking initiative and being able to overcome problems that arise.
