    If you work hard, then yeah it could be. I remember my friend saying it's ultimately up to you whether you sink or swim. Regardless of what uni you go to. It could be that you go to a excellent uni but you do absolutely crap in what you're meant to do. I hope everything works out for the best for you, good luck

    Mechanical Engineering graduate here. It's worth it yes. Getting a good degree(2.1 or higher) is one thing but more importantly as an engineer it's very crucial you secure yourself placements during the summer and/or even a year in industry between your 2nd/3rd year. These students whom did placements at Tata, Cummins, BMW etc now have jobs already secured with the same companies during their final year because they did well and were wanted. One of my friends did this and went to Cummins for 25k or so and another for JLR.

    It's alright, to be honest I'm not so good with knowing what jobs are best for graduates except for the fact that graduates often apply to jobs that aren't usually related to the degree they took and it's fine. If you want more information ask the student service at your uni. Sorry i couldn't be of more help

    If the course is accredited it doesn't matter how mediocre the uni is. Professional accreditation is all that matters.

    Work hard, get 2:1 or more, a good placement and/or work experience and you'll have no problem finding work.

    As long as you get a 2.1 or higher, then yes it's worth it.
