Student Profiles

Lauren Carter

"I believe my MSc was invaluable in preparing me for my current role – covering a broad range of subjects has been extremely useful when liaising with different departments.
I got my job through the links Cranfield had with the company I’m currently working for, who were really impressed by the range of subjects covered as well as the detail and professionalism of my project.”

Dariusz Kukowski

"During my time at Cranfield I met many people from all over the world from Canada to New Zealand. On my Aerospace Vehicle Design course alone there were over 20 nationalities. All these different nationalities on campus are what helped make Cranfield so unique."
