I did my MSc in Thermal Power and it was very industry focused in terms of its theoretical application to everyday challenges, especially within industry. In doing my MSc it was natural progression that I was going to come back to do my doctorate. I founded my own company EGB Engineering and am the Exec Director.

Cranfield gives good teachers, interesting lectures, updated group projects with the best technology available currently, and most importantly the perfect preparation and connection with industry that helps start your professional career.

The reason why I wanted to come to Cranfield is because it's one of the best ranked schools. I really like coding and using computational tools to solve engineering problems. I think the course is really relevant and useful for today's digital era.

I think space is the future – this is my chance to be right at the forefront of that. My thesis was the interaction between engineering and medicine in space. For me the course was perfect. I was looking for something fairly specific and I looked around, but I didn't apply to anywhere else.

I feel that the MSc in Advanced Motorsport Engineering at Cranfield was an incredible experience I would not have been able to have anywhere else. I completed my thesis project with Mercedes AMG F1 which has further progressed into a full time job as a Test and Development Engineer.

Cranfield offers an inspiring, challenging and rewarding academic environment. I find staff very competent, motivating and flexible. Having the possibility to share knowledge as industry professionals among each other is truly valuable. I can highly recommend the course!

All the things I learned on the course were very useful for my career. The pace of assignments and workload was high but it really helped me to face these issues in the real world. The assignments were challenging but they really make they make you think which really helps you to see the bigger picture.

I applied for this course as I wanted to be more refined in the computer software field. Beyond the course, I can apply what I have learned in the modules, so that I can achieve a sense of accomplishment in my study. In addition, there are many choices in the topic of the thesis which combines interest and professionalism.

I wouldn't have been able to have the career that I've had without the course. Its door-opening - having the course and having the Cranfield network leads you to have the opportunity to take on new jobs.

My previous experience and my passion for robots enabled me to hunt for a university that provides a master’s degree which is research-intensive and industry-orientated in the field of robotics. I found Cranfield University, which is renowned for its intensive research. I was very excited to begin my journey to study an MSc in Robotics at Cranfield.

This course has such a strong reputation in the aviation industry and is recognised and well known by many experts. During my master's we had many industry experts and CEOs visiting and giving lectures

The course is well structured, intense and enjoyable. Cranfield University academics are supported by industry experts and this mix of teaching styles works for me. In the day job it would take many years to gain the same depth and breadth of topic understanding that we will enjoy after our two years of study.

Cranfield University has definitely fulfilled my expectations with regards to studying abroad. Considering the nature of my field of knowledge in structures and impact damage, the Cranfield Impact Centre was the most fascinating and impressive one for me, embodying an FIA approved test house for F1 crash tests.
