Cranfield University is an exclusively postgraduate university specialising in technology and management research whilst demonstrating global leadership in the quality of its education provision (both to students and to executive-level professionals). Cranfield University is number one in the UK for training and producing engineering and technology postgraduates. In the recent Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 exercise, 81% of our research was judged to be world-leading or internationally excellent. Cranfield University has also been awarded the prestigious Queen’s Anniversary Prize in Further and Higher Education four times, for our Fellowship in Manufacturing Management (2005), work in Humanitarian DeMining (2007), Aviation Safety through research and training in air accident investigation (2011) and for our research on water and sanitation for developing countries (2015). The IMEC (Intelligent Mobility Engineering Centre), one of Cranfield University’s new facilities, will enhance Cranfield’s position as one of the UK’s leading centres for education, training and research for the rapidly growing intelligent mobility and transport systems sector. The MUEAVI (Multi-User Environment for Autonomous Vehicle Innovation) road is a £9 million research facility. Also opening in autumn 2017, it is a mile of ‘smart’ roadway that will be used in the development of connected and autonomous vehicles, including the associated systems needed to integrate technologies into our day-to-day lives. MUEAVI will be unique, as it will be integrated into the heart of the campus, providing a new arterial road and a pedestrian friendly boulevard, while also serving as a ‘living lab’ research environment.
