Subject Areas
Our courses and research programmes are informed and directed by industry’s needs and challenges.  To best address these challenges, our specialisms are aligned to specific sectors, which we refer to as subject areas.  

Aerospace – 
Through the strong links with industry we have built over the past 70 years, we focus on defining and delivering the aircraft, airport and airspace management of the future. 

Using our expertise in propulsion, aeronautical engineering, intelligent automation, autonomous systems, and computational engineering we are creating tomorrow’s air vehicles and businesses today.  

We have more than 200 doctoral students and 400 MSc Aerospace students drawn from universities around the world. We are the UK’s top destination for aerospace engineering postgraduate students and the largest provider of accredited aerospace degree courses.

Design – 
Innovative companies today (large or small) strive for excellence to create the next breakthrough innovation - whether that be to advance technology, stay competitive in the market place, or to provide positive change for society. To achieve this, companies need to maintain their competitive edge, employing talented professionals with ideas and vision, coupled with the skills to innovate with confidence. We believe that Design Thinking is a powerful process that when mastered will empower our professional learners to unlock their creative potential to generate novel ideas and to translate these ideas into tangible and impactful outputs for innovation.  

Energy and Power – 
Providing a sustainable, secure and affordable energy supply is fundamentally important to our lives. Cranfield is advancing the potential solutions in energy and power to ensure our future needs are met. 

Cranfield’s expertise in energy and power covers a range of the potential energy solutions, from oil and gas, to our developing reliance on renewable energy from the world around us. This presents many exciting opportunities in new technologies and services related to low carbon energy and power generation. 

Our postgraduate community includes around 200 MSc students from around the globe and 150 full-time doctoral students including our Renewable Energy Marine Structures (REMS) Centre for Doctoral Training with the University of Oxford. 

Our expertise is supported by unique industrial scale experimental facilities, including an ocean systems laboratory, gas turbines, an anaerobic digestion plant, and high temperature coating test facilities. 

Environment and Agrifood – 
For 50 years, Cranfield has been contributing to enhancing natural capital and ensuring that global food systems are more resilient for the future. We are recognised worldwide by industry, government and academe for our research and teaching in plants, soil, water and air. 

Our strengths range from environmental governance and risk, to food security. We work with global and domestic agriculture and food companies, environmental agencies, and governments to ensure that our research benefits all in society.

Our postgraduate Environment and Agrifood programmes give the leaders of the future the skills and vocational experience with industry they need to make a difference.  Our near-industrial scale research facilities are unparalleled. 

Forensics – 
Cranfield University’s Forensic Institute has been a home for innovation, expertise, and a strong centre for the student community for years. 

The recent investment of £7.2 million into the latest forensic equipment, teaching spaces and experienced and industry relevant academic staff has meant that 2021 will be a new and exciting horizon for the department. 

Cranfield Forensic Institute (CFI) has become a leading international player in the field known for the best research and postgraduate teaching and we significantly enhance the employability of students by producing postgraduates of the highest quality.

School of Management – 
Cranfield School of Management is one of the oldest business schools in Europe. Our contribution to global innovation is world-leading, changing the way society thinks, works and learns.
