The Vehicle and Weapon Engineering course from Cranfield University is designed to offer equally a broad and in-depth coverage of technologies used in the design, development, test and evaluation of weapon systems and military vehicles.
Special attention will be given to recent advances in defence technology; and to educating students in the analysis and evaluation of systems against changes and developments in the threat.
The course also offers a critical depth to undertake engineering analysis or the evaluation of relevant sub systems.
The taught element consists of 10 core and 4 Optional modules covering major aspects of defence technology, providing a balanced and broad coverage of key aspects, issues and constraints associated with the design, development, performance and integration of weapon and vehicle systems.
Takes you on to employment within the defence forces or defence research establishments and defence industry.
