    I'm looking for a course in Space technology. My two options are:

    1. Surrey: Space Engineering
    2. Cranfield: Astronautics and Space Engineering

    I've been wanting to work for ESA and attempt the YGT (Young Graduate Trainee) programme they have to offer each year. Now I know Cranfield university is renown for it's links in engineering industries, especially within the Aerospace & Defence areas.

    Surrey on the other hand has it's own space centre devoted to space research and presumably has close ties with SSTL.

    I can't quite decide which would be the better option, I'm purely taking this post-graduate course to give the best chances of applying for Space graduate jobs. Any help towards this matter would be much obliged!

    Kind regards,
    Dylan R.Fisher

    Looking at the modules I would go for Cranfield, their course looks a level or two above Surrey's although potentially to the point where it could be too intense.
