Hey, I have a few questions regarding the engineering course at Durham
Well first of all, how well do employers respect the course? From the people in industry that I know, most would recommend oxbridge, imperial, bristol, and southampton. The thing is, I would like for one of my UCAS choices to be general engineering (giving me more time to consider which branch to comit myself to). The rest of my choices are for aeronautical engineering, and that's where Durham seems to slip up. On the site they state:
Durham engineering degrees are accredited by: the Institution of Civil Engineers; the Institution of Structural Engineers; the Institution of Engineering and Technology; and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
So why is it not accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society? How much will it matter if it is not accredited? Chances are I will go into aeronautics, so this is very important for job prospects is it not? Durham's course looks really good, but it'd be a really bad idea to go for it when their aeronautics branch isn't accredited.
Claims damages because he didn't get a first
