About Cranfield University
Cranfield is world-leading in its contribution to global innovation. With our emphasis on the aerospace, automotive, defence and security, health, environment, management and manufacturing sectors, we have changed the way society thinks, works and learns.
We generate and transform knowledge, translating it to the benefit of society. Our partners, from micro SMEs to the largest blue-chip multinationals, from governments across the world to NGOs and charities, tell us this is what they value about Cranfield. Innovation is part of Cranfield’s ‘corporate DNA’, evolved over 60 years of commitment to this agenda. We pride ourselves on our international culture, welcoming students from 106 countries.
The success of Cranfield rests on the knowledge, skills and abilities of our staff which are key to our competitive advantage. Organisations throughout the world have recognised Cranfield’s excellence in teaching and research.
Recognitions range from those given to us by the Royal Anniversary Trust which awards the Queen's Anniversary Prize for Further and Higher Education, to those made to individual members of staff and departments.
As well as awards and accolades, we are also recognised through research rankings such as theResearch Assessment Exercise which will be superseded in 2014 by the Research Excellence Framework
