Cranfield is among the first 7 universities to partner with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation (EMF) as a Pioneer University. There are now over 60 universities on all continents associated with EMF.
Cranfield University, south UK
Over 2,000 degree graduates in our specialist areas every year. We graduate the highest number of engineering and technology postgraduates in the UK. Cranfield is one of the top four universities in the UK for Mechanical Aeronautics and Manufacturing Engineering.
Circularity in Practice – Short Course
Duration: Two days
Location: Cranfield campus
Cost: £1,250 discounts available
Participants will have the opportunity to use state of the art tools and techniques to analyse their own business or ideas for a business venture and investigate opportunities to introduce circular principles across the range of business functions including procurement and supply chains, design, manufacture, use and waste management.
(The Technology Innovation and Management for a Circular Economy course, has been withdrawn. )
To better suit the needs of industry
Cranfield provides a suite of short *(CPD) courses for professionals, senior managers, and executives providing further knowledge and skills to manage the transition to a circular economy.
The transition towards a circular economy has been rapid over recent years. These Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Courses provide industrial professionals, senior managers, and executives with the knowledge and skills to transition within their organisation to a circular economy.
“Short courses” range from half-day sessions to several weeks. The majority are around a week long. Scheduled short courses are mostly classroom based.
Besides the Circular Economy courses, other areas of CPD study include:
Agrifood, Aerospace, Defence and Security, Design, Energy and Power, Environment, Management, Manufacturing, Transport Systems and Water
A EMF Pioneer University – Cranfield University
As the UK’s only exclusively postgraduate university, Cranfield’s large-scale facilities and unrivalled industry partnerships is creating leaders in technology and management globally
Explore our international activity
At Cranfield, our students engage in, and then shape, the global debates that matter – the resilience of our cities’ infrastructures, how to develop the next generation of technology leaders, the future of flight or the practices needed to deliver safe water and sanitation.
Here at Cranfield we are developing the Nano Membrane Toilet which will be able to treat human waste on-site without external energy or water. This toilet is designed for single-household use (equivalent to 10 people) and accepts urine and faeces as a mixture.
The Nano Membrane Toilet is a development in response to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s ‘Reinvent the Toilet Challenge’. The innovative, affordable and sustainable toilet developed by the team can be used without the need for connection to water, power or sewage supplies and has no waste collection requirement.
