Cranfield University is a British postgraduate university based on two campuses, with a research-oriented focus. The main campus is at Cranfield, Bedfordshire and the second is the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom based at Shrivenham, Oxfordshire. The main campus is unique in the United Kingdom for having its own operational airport (Cranfield Airport) next to the main campus. The facilities at the airport are used by Cranfield University's own aircraft in the course of aerospace teaching and research. The university also has connections in India and Australia.

Cranfield University Video

Words: Paul Fisher Video: Natalee Hazelwood This is the super-sized remote control car created by Bedfordshire engineers when they turned a two-and-a-half tonne 4x4 into the ultimate boys' toy. Dr James Brighton, Dr Kim Blackburn and Dr Terence Richards, from Cranfield University's off-road dynamics facility, spent a month of their spare time turning the giant Hummer H3 into the world's premier hand-held driving machine. And they took the vehicle through its paces for the media on Thursday. Dr Brighton, who has been an off-road engineering lecturer at the university since 1998, said: "This project has shown that working with off-road vehicles can be great fun as well as a great challenge.
