I am going to apply to be applying for universities soon and my 5 options are Coventry university,Harper Adams,Bolton,staffordshire and teesside university.Which university do you guys think will be the best for mechanical engineering?And also I originally planned to study aerospace engineering but I heard it would be better to do a bachelors in mechanical and a masters in aerospace, so what is your opinion on this ?

Harper Adams? Are you looking to go into agriculture? It's a specialist university that mostly educates people in farming or agricultural technologies.

Also check that any courses are accredited by iMechE (they may well be, but you do need to check).

All of them are accredited by institute of mechanical engineering except Harper Adams

In As level I got a B in physics and C in both maths and chemistry but I missed a B in both of them by a few marks and I am retaking then in January so I think I’ll get Bs and Cs overall

Hi - I'm afraid Doonesbury isn't quite correct. While Harper Adams has its routes in agriculture and is based in the countryside, engineering stretches far beyond with off-road, motorsport, military vehicle, design and development and more. Even has the first UK student rally team and a project working on driverless cars.

Who accredits the Engineering degree?

Institution of Agricultural Engineers (IAgrE)
This course is accredited by the Institution of Agricultural Engineers (IAgrE), and MEng graduates are eligible for initial registration for Chartered Engineering status. The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) describes an Incorporated Engineer as an applications-based engineer who works with the technology that is available, while a Chartered Engineer specialises in analysis, creating the technology of tomorrow.

Yup. So, Agricultural and not IMechE.

I'm sure it's a very good course especially for budding agricultural engineers. But I think you'd agree it's not a typical route for someone who wants to go into aerospace.

I guess Harper Adams is not a good university for aerospace engineering, I think my best option would be Coventry because it’s ranked 12th in the UK.And also do you think I should do a degree in mechanical engineering and then masters in aero or a degree in aero first?

You can get a career in aerospace with a MEng in MechEng.

Note that student funding is different for the postgrad MSc, and therefore a 4+ year integrated masters may be financially a better route.
