Pretty similar I would imagine. Did you look at Edinburgh or Glasgow? I think for CS they're two of the best half-dozen in the UK. You'll be fine with either of those you've picked though.

Aberdeen Comp Sci grads regularly get interviewed by the computer world's big players like IBM, and due to being in Aberdeen get the first choice of the IT work in the oil and gas. My dad's an IT consultant and a large percentage of his office have Aberdeen computer science degrees.

If you think that an employer is going to base his decision on the reputation of the university, especially when it comes to Aberdeen and L'boro, you're wrong. If you lose out on a job it'll be because someone with decades of experience got it, not because someone from a university that is ranked higher in some league tables applied for it as well.
