Top-5 Reasons to attend Cranfield University


1. World-class, large-scale facilities

Built on a former RAF base, Cranfield is one of only a few universities in the world to own and run its own airport, maintaining an aerospace heritage stretching back more than 70 years.

Many of our facilities are industry standard, used by other universities and serve as essential, front-line resources for the UK as a whole.  These include the National Flying Laboratory Centre, the National Wind Tunnel facility and the National Reference Centre for Soils. We also host the National Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements, an aircraft measurement platform used by the UK atmospheric research community on campaigns throughout the world. Our Crash Impact Centre is one of just three FIA-approved test centres in the world, crash-testing Formula One cars.

And continuing this long tradition, the Aerospace Integration Research Centre, a new £35 million innovative aerospace research centre that will change the design of future aircraft, has just opened in 2017.
