Having difficulty deciding on which course to pick at Imperial...

Narrowed it down to Mechanical vs. Aerospace vs. Design Engineering

My other choices are:
Cambridge - General Engineering
Bristol - Engineering Design
Sheffield - Interdisciplinary Engineering MEng
Leeds - Mechatronics and Robotics

Any prospective/current/past students to weigh in??

Thanks in advance

No opinion, but if you're still unsure by the time you need to submit your application because of the early Cambridge deadline then leave your final choice blank and add it after further research.

most of your courses but Leeds are more or less ''general'' engineering so i think it'll be best if you choose design eng for imperial as well

cool man, appreciate the input. Do you know how much of the course is product design based?? Would prefer a more mathematical course if possible

If you want a more mathematical course, I wouldn't be looking at design courses. In fact, if you want a more mathematical course, more applied maths/physics courses might also be worth a look too.

As above, design engineering courses tend to be less mathematical. Imperial's design engineering course is a spinout of it's fairly successful innovation design engineering masters that is co-taught with the Royal College of Art. They also accepted non-engineering grads for that, and didn't require very intensive mathematical background. Thus, unless you're artistically inclined, you may find it disappointing.

Of the courses indicated, Aerospace would probably be the most mathematical, followed closely by Mechanical. You may want to reconsider your other options if you want to apply to very mathematical courses - while those two courses at Imperial, and the Cambridge course naturally, will both be quite mathematically advanced, the others are less likely to be (particularly in the design engineering bracket). You may want to consider applying to an Engineering Mathematics/joint honours in Maths and Engineering course for some of your other ones (such as Bristol's very good course).
