    Hello guys,

    I want to study Communication Engineering and I was accepted at both York and Warwick. Which uni do you think is better to study Electrical Engineering? Also, are they considered top or middle class unis? Warwicks course is really good but the rankings are low... Can someone help with my decision? Also, do you know any better unis for this particular course?

    Thanks in advance!

    The fundamental difference is Warwick starts as a general engineering course and then you specialise into EE, Mech, etc.

    Thanks for the reply! What I didn't specify was that this is a MSc programme. All the courses are specifically for this field. You still prefer York? At the rankings York is much better but Warwick is a better uni overall and the programme is much better...

    Warwick appears under General not EEE.

    If the course is better for you go there.

    No. Warwick is ranked well for engineering. And employers don't care anyway.

    Which ranking are you looking at that includes both York and Warwick?

    Electrical Engineering because Communication Engineering is a sub-category of EE

    I was looking at QS and the Shangai one. The other ones do not include Warwick in their top 100

    Afaik neither are ranked in QS 2016 or Shanghai for EE

    Can you link it please.

    And I'll say it again, the course content is much more important.

    Edit: just double checked QS, the filter wasn't working in mobile. Warwick is ranked, York it seems isn't.

    You are right. Only Warwick is in 100-150 place. I guess only the course material matters...

    You were extremely helpful thank you so much for your advice!!! I'll buy you a beer anytime 😂
