About

The Aerospace Manufacturing course at Cranfield University teaches the sought-after capability to manage major improvement programmes in the aerospace manufacturing industry or instigate intervention that delivers improvements to the performance of their businesses.

Overview

Key facts

The Aerospace Manufacturing course offered by the Cranfield University combines the university's long standing expertise for delivering high-quality Masters' programmes in both aerospace and manufacturing. 

Courses receive strong support from the global aerospace industry, both the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) such as Airbus and Rolls-Royce, as well as their tiers of supplier. 

There is a strong emphasis on applying knowledge in the industrial environment and all teaching is in the context of industrial application. Many features of this course are shared with the Engineering and Management of Manufacturing Systems MSc, but this course specifically prepares graduates to embark on a career in aerospace manufacturing.
