    I'm trying to decide between engineering at Durham or intergrated mechanical and electrical engineering at bath.
    In Durham as the first two years are a broad engineering and then I would probably choose either mechanical or electrical depending on which I like most, the bath course is both mechanical and electrical for the whole 4 years.

    Which do you think has a better reputation for engineering, which gives a better education what do you think I should choose?

    There isn't a better place to go as the standard's are very similar. One advantage of Bath is they do a number of sandwich course giving work experience.
    You need to consider course content, how you feel about Durham's college system, chance of work experience, how near you want to be to home etc and make a decision on that basis. Any difference between these and a number of unis in standard's will be negligible and certainly not a reason for making your choice.
