Forensic Engineering

I was attracted to Cranfield University because of the uniqueness of the course. MSc Computer Aided Engineering is one of the emerging courses which is only offered by a few universities and Cranfield University is one of the leading universities in computational engineering research. It has state of the art teaching, learning and research facilities that reflect the emerging advanced technologies in all areas, which are essential in finding optimised sustainable solutions towards human development.
