We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
As the UK’s only exclusively postgraduate university, Cranfield provides a mature, focused and professional study environment. We are passionate about not just giving our students a formal education, but a practical experience to increase the chances of employability too.
Our Mechanical, Aeronautical & Manufacturing Engineering education is ranked Top 5 in the UK and 45th Globally by QS World University Ranking 2018.
Our education and award-winning research covers all modes of vehicles and transport across technology, engineering and management, including sustainable transport and intelligent mobility.
Our success in providing excellent practical, technical and business related skills means Cranfield graduates are highly successful in securing relevant employment – with 96% of our graduates in employment or further study within six months (DLHE longitudinal 2017).
We have over 50 years’ experience in transport systems including the aviation, automotive, motorsport, military and marine sectors – with exceptional facilities – many of which are unique to the university sector. These include Cranfield Airport home to the National Flying Laboratory Centre and the UK’s first Digital Air Traffic Control Centre, Safety and Accident Investigation Centre, and the soon to be build Digital Aviation Research and Technology Centre that will spearhead the UK’s research into digital aviation technology.
Our latest facility is a £19 million ‘smart’ roadway test environment for the development of intelligent and autonomous vehicles, making it a UK first. It includes the associated systems needed to integrate emerging technologies into our day-to-day lives.
In an increasingly interconnected world, we specialise in understanding the whole environment in which transport operates: the vehicles, infrastructure, businesses and logistics, and the human aspects of operating, managing and using transport.
Our specialist qualifications are a passport to many exciting career options across a range of growing, globally relevant and intellectually challenging sectors. Working with companies like British Airways, the Singapore Aviation Academy, Heathrow, London Luton Airport, AMG Petronas Motorsport, Siemens, Red Bull Racing and Aston Martin (to name a handful), our research and teaching is helping to define the future of transport globally. Transport Systems students go on to a broad spectrum of successful careers and our alumni operate at the highest levels of transport organisations across the world.
Graduates will also join an influential network of over 60,000 alumni, working across the world in diverse industries. This international community provide excellent opportunities to network with leading professionals at events throughout the world, opening up a host of opportunities to you throughout your career.
“Cranfield understand that industry collaboration is key to career success. This course gave me relevant experience as well as networking opportunities. It has been instrumental in my career and I would recommend it to anyone with the drive and determination to progress their career.”
Sam Rawcliffe, Advanced Motorsport Engineering MSc, 2017
