    Both are good, I would also recommend The MSc Sustainable Energy Technology course at Uni Of Sussex.
    I have an offer from Sussex as well, but the modules are given by chemical process engineering. So they weren't really appealing to me.

    I see, I would say Nottingham are the best choice as a lot of the energy companies like Edf energy are based in Nottingham.

    What if I would like to work in London? Sam answer would be true? And why did you recommend Sussex?

    they have a pretty good department, and specialise in that turbo-machinery, gas turbine engines. They also recently got funded $1.5 million dollars by GE Aviation for research on their rolls Royce trent engines. A lot of energy companies are also around the south, as well as navy marines and automotive companies such as Nissan, Bentley, jaguar.

    All your choices where good though you'll equally get a similar degree from each but since you want to work in London then maybe the best choice is Sussex or Brunel?

    Why is that really? Because you are not the first person to tell me that if I want to work around London, I should consider universities around London

    because employers around the London area are more than likely to visit close well known universities and offer their students information on graduate jobs/internships as well as info on CV preparation/interview skills etc.

    For example @ Sussex they are events every month where some big name employers come to the university and give talks to students about their business's and what they look for (giving tips and hints) etc. these are only open to engineering and science students and are formal events. Various big name companies have been and still continue to come, example companies are Thales, BP, ABS group, BAE systems, KPMG etc.

    The course in sussex is not accredited If you say that it doesn't really make a difference to be graduated from an accredited course, my heart says Nottingham.)

    it is but there are other ways of getting chartered, you can sit an additional exam if u end up not doing an accredited course but tbh I would save myself the hassle and prevent additional exams and just do one that's accredited.

    In the context of Mathematics, this is incorrect.
