“Cranfield has been a global leader in the research, development and practical application of aerospace technology since 1946. Aerospace is in our DNA – and we are still the only University in Europe with access to our own airport and runway!

“Our master's programmes attract students from around the world, drawn by the combination of academic excellence and strong industry focus. Our work embraces the entire spectrum of aviation, helping to define and deliver the Aircraft of the Future, the Airport of the Future, the Airline of the Future and Airspace Management of the Future.

“Our long and close relationship with business is perfectly illustrated by our new, world-leading Aerospace Integration Research Centre. 

“Co-funded by Airbus, Rolls Royce and the Higher Education Funding Council for England, this £35 million collaboration between industry and academia will, through the integration of airframes, propulsion and other systems and technologies, soon be developing the breakthrough solutions that will radically change the design of aircraft in the future.”
