Many of our on-campus, specialist research facilities are unique; from an operational airport to wastewater treatment works.
Our comprehensive range of equipment provides you with unparalleled opportunities for your research and studies. Read about some of the specialist facilities in each area on our specific theme pages.
The Kings Norton Library at Cranfield campus was designed by Sir Norman Foster
Our extensive and specialised libraries on both sites offer a vast array of sector-specific resources. Our librarians will support you in accessing and using them, and respond quickly to requests for one-to-one help. There is also a dedicated study skills team to help with your personal and professional development and use of academic language. Our aim is to ensure you succeed academically at Cranfield but also that, when you graduate, you are familiar with the resources widely used within your industry.
Our IT services offer innovative online and on-campus, real-time, interactive opportunities integral to your learning experience. These bring you closer to our state-of-the-art facilities even if you need to work remotely at times. In addition to high-performance, commercially-relevant software such as CFX, Fluent and Matlab, you will also have access to specialist engineering applications to develop and test your own software.
“I had access to a wide range of learning resources: library, intranet and Symplicity for career techniques development, which are available online and accessible from any location. I enjoyed the fact that the classes were smaller in size, which means classes tend to be very interactive.”
