Namibian Institute of Mining and Technology
The Namibian Institute of Mining and Technology (NIMT) is a technical vocational training institute in Arandis, Namibia, established in 1991. It offers courses in mining, manufacturing and engineering. In 2007, De Beers donated N$2.1 million to open a second, northern campus and in November of that year a campus was opened in Tsumeb. NIMT also operates a campus in Keetmanshoop in southern Namibia.
In September 2009, thieves broke into the main office of the Institute by smashing a window and disabling the alarm. They stole N$350,000 and used a duplicate key to gain entry to the safe. The funds were designated for the registration, accommodation and transportation of trainees. Police believed they were somehow affiliated with the Institute and a N$20,000 award was offered for information.
