    If you get an offer, would you go? I've heard satisfaction rates for MechE are pretty low

    Possibly (depending on replies From other universities)

    I like the fact how they have business finance as part of the degree. Plus UCL is a world renowned institution and it seems located in London 😍

    I don't know why the department has such low satisfaction rates (do you know why?). It has pretty high entry requirements too...

    No doubt, job opportunities after you graduate are plentiful in London(especially with a UCL degree).
    But the probem would be UCL lack of focus on any of the Engineering subjects. I guess they employ sh*t professors.

    Ohh right that sucks man,
    I'm going to have to reconsider what university I accept depending on my offers

    I have applied to
    Cambridge - Engineering
    Imperial College London - Aeronautical Engineering
    Southampton - Aero/astronautical engineering
    Glasgow - Aerospace Systems
    UCL - Mechanical Engineering with Business Finance

    Where have u applied and for what course?

    man, you've applied to some top notch unis. You must have amazing grades.

    I've applied to
    Imperial-Electrical
    Manchester-Electrical
    UCL-Electrical
    LSE- Management
    Oxford- Biochemistry

    I have no idea why on earth i applied to Oxford for Biochem and LSE for management. The thing is that I'm also applying to other countries...so I'm only interested in going to either UCL or Imperial in UK.

    Oh wow! You must have great grades too!

    I achieved AAAAA in Scottish Highers (we don't have A*)
    And I am predicted AAA in Advanced Highers

    What about you? (I was also wondering how you could fit in biochemistry, management and electrical engineering in one personal statement haha😃)

    My grades are on the first post of this thread.

    I managed to integrate Business and Engineering pretty well into my PS. However, I didn't write anything about Biochem....i just hope i can get at least an interview from oxford

    Very good! How did you cope with the PAT?
    I tried some of the questions and they were tough!

    Current 1st year Engineering student here at UCL (Chem Eng. but our departments often interact so I can answer questions). Ask me anything if you have questions
    Hi there, Why does the mechanical engineering department have such a bad reputation in UCL?
