As a specialist postgraduate university located at the heart of the UK's Cambridge – Milton Keynes – Oxford arc, our world-class programmes, unrivalled facilities, close links with business, industry and governments, and international outlook all combine to attract students and teaching staff from around the globe. The result is a long track record of creating leaders and innovators in our specialist areas of science, technology, engineering and management. Our graduates are in demand and their association with Cranfield brings benefits throughout their careers.

Why Cranfield?

  • Being the only solely postgraduate university in the UK, means that every single lecture and practical session is specifically tailored and designed at MSc level and is not an extension of previous material taught in undergraduate degrees.
  • Our courses and assessment methods are specifically developed to solve real industrial problems. You will be working in industrial work environments in teams for your Group Projects and develop solutions to real world problems in your MSc thesis.
  • You will be taught in collaboration with industry. We offer teaching that is delivered by industrial speakers.
  • Our courses are informed by our Industrial Advisory Panel (IAP) and regularly change to adapt to industrial needs.
