We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Manufacturing at Cranfield University is unique in its multidisciplinary approach that brings together expertise in the areas of design, technology and management.
We a key role in ensuring the UK stays at the cutting edge of manufacturing research. Cranfield has been selected to lead three (with involvement in a further two), of the nine new EPSRC Centres for Innovative Manufacturing across the UK. The Cranfield Innovative Manufacturing Research Centre (IMRC) is also a driving force for both the rapid growth of established areas of manufacturing expertise and the development of new research areas. Our excellence in postgraduate manufacturing education and training is recognised by a number of professional institutions including the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), the Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET) and the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS).
We have close partnerships with some of the leading manufacturing organisations such as Rolls-Royce plc, AstraZeneca, Pfizer, General Motors and BAE Systems. Research partnerships are undertaken with more than 500 organisations of all sizes every year. Our work uses facilities on a full production scale, transforming great ideas into effective products, technologies and services.
We create an ideal learning environment for you to pursue your qualification in manufacturing to launch you into the next stage of your career.
