“We’re delighted to announce Dietrich’s as a sponsor now as we are just embarking on our plans for The Centre for Advanced Timber Technology (CATT), showcasing timber as a construction material,” explains Toby Kinnaird, head of partnerships. “This relationship with Dietrich’s provides us with access to leading industry software that would be extremely expensive on a commercial basis but which will be invaluable to us in our teaching particularly with our learning by doing focus”.

As part of the agreement, in addition to supplying the software, Dietrich’s will provide training for NMITE academics on an ongoing basis. Founded 37 years ago, Dietrich’s has been in the UK for 15 years and is a well-known supporter of software and training in education establishments.  

“We are delighted to be supporting NMITE at a particularly exciting time. We look forward to working with them and helping them and their future students get the most out of our tailor-made wood-based software which has already been used by over 10,000 customers for their demanding CAD tasks,” said Terry Baity from Dietrich’s UK office. “As a world market leader ourselves we are delighted to partner with NMITE and are impressed by their intention to deliver the world’s most distinctive and innovative engineering curriculum.”
