They're on a par, in reality.
Go and visit both, see which feels 'right' to you, examine the course, consider if you want to live in Guildford or Brighton... you need to look beyond the league tables to get the best result for you.

For academics it depends on the subject, like for Engineering and Physics, Surrey definitely has the upper hand. However the city of Brighton sounds like a pretty great place to live as a student, whereas Guildford is pretty limited without trips to London.

As for engineering the "best mechanical engineering student in Europe" in the 2013 awards was from Sussex uni (bear in mind students from Imperial, Southampton, Bristol all send in applicants for this award and Sussex came on top...)
It may not have as big of a reputation as Surrey overall but it is definitely up there in top 30 easily when it comes to academics they can compete with the very best.

You need to look at the research focuses of both departments because this will shape what modules you can take.

I think surrey has risen up over the last few years whilst Sussex has dropped (they use to really high according to league tables)
But take positions in the table with a pinch of salt
