Cranfield University


At the forefront of aerospace technology for over 60 years, Cranfield takes a practical and holistic approach right across the business of flying.

Cranfield's clients value our multidisciplinary approach. We bring together aeronautical engineering, materials and manufacturing with expertise in aviation business processes and practices. We play a big part in the aerospace business sector with close commercial partnerships with Airbus, BAE Systems, Boeing and Rolls-Royce, to name just a few. We have worked with Boeing, for instance, to develop a Cabin Simulator at the University, a unique facility which focuses on factors that influence human survival in aircraft accidents.

Cranfield has also partnered with key aerospace players including BAE Systems in a £32 million national programme called ASTRAEA to develop technology and regulations to bring uninhabited air vehicles into routine, non-segregated operation in UK airspace.
