Employability

NMITE students are uniquely placed to develop the skills, knowledge and attributes that are critical for 21st-century employment – as graduate engineers and beyond.

Companies tell us they want graduates with subject knowledge, excellent problem-solving skills,  the ability to translate this to real-world environments and the collaboration, communication and project management skills that will make your ideas happen, and make a real contribution to your employer from Day 1.

Developing graduates with these skills is at the centre of NMITE’s approach. We achieve this  through an immersive, employer-engaged, multi-dimensional master’s degree programme where knowledge, contextual understanding, work experience, employability skills, and perspective are integrated into the programme. 

Our learning programme has been designed with input from employers to deliver beyond basic and  employability and employment. Our engineering sprints provide you with opportunities to  apply your knowledge and skills to come up with solution to real-world challenges, a vital skill that will set you apart from other engineering graduates in the world of employment.

Employability support

Bespoke support for each student ensures that you can focus on your unique qualities to ensure that as an NMITE graduate you stand out to future employers. We have been told by employers that  it is important that graduates can take responsibility for their own professional development, so we develop students  who are self-aware, understand their individual strengths and can communicate and demonstrate that, and plan their next learning priorities. Employers are looking for graduates with effective and modern communication skills a presence and confidence that comes through at application, CV, and interview.
