Aerospace Engineering

  1. Jun 3, 2009 #1

    I am currently holding offers for Aerospace Engineering from the following unis:


    My reply date is tomorrow and I am having a hard time deciding which offer to accept.
    Personally I'm attracted to Manchester the most (I like the course content, the city, etc.) but I'm not sure how the quality of teaching compares to the other two since Manchester ranks worse in league tables. e.g. Bath is 7th, Manchester 15th in Aero in Times Good Uni guide 2010.

    Could you, please share your opinion on this?

    Sorry, I know this is late, but I'd suppose Loughborough is the better choice. After all, isn't it ranked 5th in UK? And manchester is a rather large university, and I'd wonder how much personal attention you could receive....

    thanks for your reply, nope its not late, i have to reply today :)

    How about Bath? It ranks even better in the tables. The only thing I don't like is that it follows the same curriculum as the mechanical/civil/manufacturing/etc. engineering courses in the first two years. But then again, it might be good.

    I actually haven't looked at Bath as a school, but usually mech and aero degrees have the first two years in common. So, which one did you decide on? Good luck with your studies BalintRigo...

    Thank you Abraham!

    I chose Bath. It ranks among the best unis in Aero eng. I know a few people that go there and they are all very satisfied. Bristol is also very by with companies like Airbus, Rolls Royce and a lot of students go for placement there.

    Any other opinions? Maybe someone who studies Engineering in Manchester?
