Bath of Bristol?? plz help Watch
Bath is considered better for Mech Eng than Bristol overall, but only by a small amount. You'd be well off at either, I guess in general Bristol might be considered more prestigious.
It depends on what you want. Bristol has all the big city amenities and the facilities tha go with a big uni, but it also has quite a spread out campus. Bath is in a much smaller town and is a much smaller uni, so you may find yourself making the trip up to Bristol every once in a while. However I doubt Bristol could compare to Bath's new huge sports village which is absolutely free for use by students.
I was a little concerned by Bristol's reluctance to show us their facilities for engineering. They showed us one engineering lab very briefly at the end of the tour, and wouldn't let us see what else was available. There is a new building currently being constructed next to the main engineering faculty though, and apparently they're going to expand their equipment into that building so perhaps it's not so bad.
I want to know which one is better for Mechanical Engineering.......
