About Communications Electronic Warfare , PG Cert - at Cranfield University

The Communications Electronic Warfare PgCert has been designed for officers of the Armed Forces and for scientists and technical officers in government defence establishments and the defence industry.

The course covers a selection of Electronic Warfare (EW) topics relevant to military communications systems, covering the specification, analysis, development, procurement, and technical management of military information systems.

The main focus of the course, being EW in relation to communications systems, assumes a good understanding of these systems before considering how to defend them from electronic attack or intercept.

Entry requirements

A first or second class honours degree or equivalent in an appropriate discipline (usually electronics, electrical engineering or physics). Alternatively, a lesser qualification with relevant professional experience may be acceptable.

Security clearance for Shrivenham

Please visit our security clearance page for further information.

Some Cranfield University courses are delivered at the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom, Shrivenham which is a Ministry of Defence (MOD) site. All applicants to courses that are wholly or partially delivered at Shrivenham must complete the BPSS (HMG Baseline Personnel Security Standard V4 April 2014) prior to registration on the course or must already hold a security clearance to this level or higher.

Your application and BPSS clearance application will be shared during the application process with the MOD who have ultimate discretion over whether to admit applicants to the Shrivenham site. This information will be returned by the MOD to Cranfield University after checks are completed and no copies will be retained by the MOD.

BPSS checks may involve confirmation of the following:

  • Identity (e.g. Photo ID)
  • Nationality and Immigration Status
  • Employment/Academic History (covering the past 3 years)
  • Criminal record (unspent convictions only)

Additionally, applicants are required to give a reasonable account of any significant periods (6 months or more in the past 3 years) of time spent abroad.

This may be revised from time to time dependent on national security requirements. For more details, please consult the BPSS Guidance.

It will take additional time to process your BPSS clearance application once you have completed your course application.

Inability to access the Shrivenham site as a result of failure to meet security clearance requirements will result in a withdrawal of offer, or, if already registered, a termination of registration.
