I'm looking for a course in Space technology. My two options are:
1. Surrey: Space Engineering
2. Cranfield: Astronautics and Space Engineering
I've been wanting to work for ESA and attempt the YGT (Young Graduate Trainee) programme they have to offer each year. Now I know Cranfield university is renown for it's links in engineering industries, especially within the Aerospace & Defence areas.
Surrey on the other hand has it's own space centre devoted to space research and presumably has close ties with SSTL.
I can't quite decide which would be the better option, I'm purely taking this post-graduate course to give the best chances of applying for Space graduate jobs. Any help towards this matter would be much obliged!

Looking at the modules I would go for Cranfield, their course looks a level or two above Surrey's although potentially to the point where it could be too intense.

Ive studied a MSc in Space Systems and I can tell you that everyone in the industry knows Surrey is the better choice, the course has close ties to real engineers who work at SSTL.
I studied MSc Space Systems at University of Southampton and it wasn't worth the money and if I could do it all over again I would have gone to Surrey instead.
