Cranfield University is an exclusively postgraduate university that is a global leader for education and transformational research in technology and management. We bring together aeronautical engineering, materials and manufacturing knowledge with expertise in the security and defence fields. As the academic provider to the UK’s MOD, and with close commercial partnerships with leading organisations such as Airbus, BAE Systems, Boeing and Rolls-Royce, Cranfield has been at the forefront of aerospace and defence technology for over 60 years. We offer a unique gateway for teaching and research, underpinned by advanced facilities, some of which are unique. From the development of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and infrared camouflage materials, through to humanitarian de-mining activities, and insights right across the business of flying, Cranfield is providing specialist knowledge to military personnel, emergency services, governments and NGOs in the UK and around the world.
