NMiTE (New Model in Technology and Engineering) is an initiative backed by government, educators
(including the University of Warwick) and industry, to transform engineering education in Britain.
Located in Hereford, NMiTE aims to be the city’s first University.

NMiTE – New Model in Technology & Engineering – is an initiative backed by government, educators (including the University of Warwick) and industry, to transform engineering education in Britain. Located in Hereford, NMiTE aims to become the first wholly new UK university in 40 years.
The NMiTE project is crucial to Britain’s competitive future. Engineers are key to mastering major world challenges – from sustainable food production to cybersecurity – but the UK is critically short of them.
We don’t have enough engineers; we don’t have enough women engineers; and employers tell us too many of the engineers we do have lack the right skills for the future.
NMiTE is here to change all this, and fast.
We’re going to change how engineering students are selected; we’re going to change how they learn; and we’re going to change how they graduate into employment.
In doing this we’ll be creating a new model of higher education for a new generation. And helping create a brighter future for Britain.
