  • To grow an efficient, effective, and sustainable enterprise.
  • To be renowned for our impact and influence – regionally, nationally and internationally.

The School of Aerospace, Transport and Manufacturing (SATM) is a leading provider of postgraduate level engineering education, research and technology support to individuals and organisations. Aerospace is one of the major themes at Cranfield University and our capability is world-leading, offering a multi-disciplinary approach that integrates design, technology and management expertise.
