Hey, so i'm about to start my engineering foundation year at Portsmouth Uni. After the foundation year, I will progress onto engineering degrees from either mechanical, electronic, civil, computing or petroleum. I'm extremely interested in the energy / utilities industry (we'll always need electricity / clean water) but am having a hard time deciding which engineering specialism would be best. I'm leaning towards electronic or mechanical, but can't really decide. I would've gone for electrical engineering but they don't do that course at Portsmouth unfortunately. Any information on which degree would be best to get into this type of industry would be great!

You can get into the energy/utility industry with civil, mechanical and electrical. Which is best depends on what part of the industry interests you the most, for example if you want to work on power generation then EEE would be the best choice etc.

Also they are very few unis that offer just electrical engineering, it tends to be "electrical and electronic engineering" as they go hand in hand.

Electrical all the way. Specialise in power engineering and you'll have many opportunities.
