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

The College of Aeronautics opened in 1946 on the former Royal Air Force base of RAF Cranfield[, and in 1969 became the Cranfield Institute of Technology which in turn becam Cranfield University in 1993.

The Coat of Arms of Cranfield University combines two cranes, alluding to the University’s name, derived from “Cranuc-feld” meaning a field frequented by Cranes. The three-branched torch in the base refers to learning and knowledge in the sciences of Engineering, Technology and Management, while theĀ  Astral Crown in the cres signifies the College of Aeronautics. The Keys signify the gaining of knowledge by study and instruction, and the outstretched wings of the Owl represent knowledge in the widest sense.

The motto, ‘post nubes lux’, means ‘out of darkness, light’.
