Kwame Mensa Yawson Ghanaian student testimonial

Studying at Cranfield is exciting and thought provoking. I chose Cranfield because of the links Cranfield has with industry and its multi-cultural environment. I found that the course gives you the opportunity to be taught by people within the industry.
