Imperial, UCL and southampton are the best I believe. Theres also oxbridge but you'd have to do general engineering with all that mechanics nonsense for 2 years before specialising electronically.

Manchester, Strathclyde, and Sheffield have good electrical industry links, as do Bath, Southampton, Cardiff and Queens Belfast. UCL, Imperial, Cambridge are all highly regarded. Loughborough is a strong engineering university, but I don't think the electrical department is it's biggest strength.

If you're looking at this area, definitely look at the Power Academy sponsorship scheme run by the IET too - it's a no-ties scheme that provides enormous benefits, both monetary and guaranteed work-experience - but only particular universities are eligible (most of the ones listed above, except Cambridge, Sheffield, UCL and L'boro), so check it out. http://conferences.theiet.org/power-...ties/index.cfm

Southampton is arguably the best for electronics, and is usually battling or beating Cambridge for 1st place in the league tables there, but then again I'm biased For electrical, my personal choice would be Strathclyde (you'll have to learn to understand Scottish though - they don't speak with subtitles), followed very closely by Manchester. The universities concentrate their research on different topics - and I'd base my choice on the research they do, as that is what you will get involved in for your individual and group projects. There is a marked difference in what you study between electronics and electrical. Make sure you know the differences.

It's never one size fits all - go out and experience the universities on their open days, ask the students and lecturers about the place, check out the EEE or EE department website, find out what they're doing and whether it interests you. See if you can find how well funded the department is - the bigger their budgets, the better the research they'll be doing, and the better the prospects will be for you as students.

'Best' is always extremely subjective, unless you look at the rankings, which are extremely objective. Being objective is not always the best solution to a problem.

It depends on several things. Are you interested in power/HV, electronics or communications? Campus or spread? City or rural? Etc.

I go to Bath, who probably have the most expertise in power engineering but also communications to a lesser degree. By having a small dept they have to focus their areas.
