    Hahahaha what an idiot. I cant believe he thought 6 degrees at Imp is worth 1 at Oxford LOL.

    Speaking from my degree, I've seen some of the "programing" they do in interdisciplinary subjects like the biomedical engineering. Possibly worth 3 introductory lectures in my course lol
    yes but then they have to also do another 3 intructory lectures from my course and so on.. its hard when it adds up.

    Someone told me that the maths we do in eee is harder than some 1st year maths degrees at other unis .

    Btw, what kind of computing projects have you covered so far?

    Imperial does engineering - its true I know a guy who knows another guy and he said it was true as well. I don't know but I reckon my sources are pretty reliable. You might want to get third party data just to be really sure.

    I am not biased. i applied to Imperial, Ox, UCL,Southampton and Durham and I chose Imperial after a massive amount of research. I chose ox over cambridge because the said business school has the leading social entrepeneurs program (in the world) and the fact that david deutsche and penrose are at ox but otherwise id have chosen camb due to the nokia nanotech lab and because it has better industrial connections (nothing on imperials). thing is, Imperial trumps both those oxbridge aspects combined with the LCN (lond nano centre-shared with UCL) and the Tanaka business school.
    let me guess... you didn't get into oxford so you went for #2, imperial.

    Don't you think your reasons for choosing a certain uni are a little bit too specific? I mean, especially the quality of business schools and industrial connections sound very nonrelevant to me. I would chosse my uni on basis of how much I like the place and not on how detailed stress-analysis is taught. And now the reasons why i will choose cam over imp:
    - the place is much more welcoming, i just dislike big cities
    - the rent and prices
    - teachers and porters were quite friendly at interview
    - there are no scheduled lectures in the afternoon
    - i like old buildings
    - i won't have to explain which uni i was studying at when i am looking for a job
    When I look at them my thoughts look pretty trivial compared to yours...

    There's a lot of people in the world who do not know about Imperial, and it looks like a whole bunch of them lives in Austria. I'm not sure if every personnel manager around here would really appreciate an undergraduate from Imperial simply because he might have never heard of it. He may even be a little suspicious because the MEng only takes 4 years of studying compared to 5 years for a DI in Austria/Germany. (Although admittedly the quality of training might be a lot better at IC)
    Other than that I don't think that the quality of a business school is utterly important for the employment perspective since it is very likely that the difference between those two elite universities is negligible. IMHO on that level its the personality that matters most. I don't see how people who e.g. call everybody not agreeing with them a moron could have a great career ...

    i dont even know how to resond. u consider the (basicaly non existant) rep of Imperial among your local (as in austria) personnel managers as justification for your statement earlier that Imperial grads will have to explain their uni to prospective employers? be gone.the business school stuff. u have no idea. unfortunately you cant see that because of that very fact and i sure as hell aint gonna spend hours educating you to that effect. seriously i cant even be arsed to verbally abuse you any further. be gone from this thread.

    if the personnel manager is doing his job right, then he WILL have heard of Imperial, even if he's living in Austria and keeping a whole incest family in his cellar.
