Experts in Water Sciences

Cranfield Water Science Institute (CWSI) has an international reputation for its transformational research and teaching in the science, engineering and management of water in the municipal, industrial and natural environments. We have been working in water for over 40 years. Our academic and research staff, including scientists, engineers, technologists, policy specialists and social scientists are engaged in delivering postgraduate teaching, research, consultancy and training in an international arena.

We run MSc programmes, supporting a large cohort of PhD research students, and we work closely with a range of clients across industry and government helping them to address their water challenges and move their businesses towards a more sustainable green economy.

Our core research activities are therefore focussed around seven main areas:

Our ethos is to provide an environment which is intellectually challenging, where research excellence is encouraged and where students, staff and ideas flourish.
