"best" based on what criteria? aren't engineers supposed to be logically competent?

best social life? best employment prospects? best teaching? best research? you will have to think harder about this question

If it's like that, then just look at a university ranking, it will be much faster that way...

I prefer Pepsi, Five Guys and Pizza Express :dontknow:

Bristol
Southampton
Edinburgh
Warwick
I would disagree with Edinburgh purely because of their awful organisation, especially within engineering.

It's a bit secluded as well.

I am currently studying Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Warwick uni. I just wanna say this beforehand to let you know what lenses I’m using. Eitherway imma try and be as most objective as possible.

In terms of the course we all undertake General Engineering for 4 terms and we then specialise for the other 5 terms (every year we have 3 terms). Many don’t really value what having a solid general engineering knowledge means.

I have been to 3 internships and none of them was about a pure subject, they all asked for people with skills and knowledge in various domains. One of them was at Land Rover, as an electrical intern in the production line of the SVR. I worked with automatic robots handling the processing; metal welding systems; fire protection systems; stock management systems; painting robots and line production control.

I can assure you that all my general engineering modules aided me towards this internship. I was assigned to keep an eye on all those systems (obviously I was an assistant). Believe me, what employers are always looking for is multidisciplinary knowledge and skills. The modules included in General Engineering are:
* Dynamics and Thermodynamics
* Electrical and Electronic Circuits
* Engineering Design
* Engineering Mathematics
* Engineering Business Management
* Introduction to Engineering: Professionalism and Practice
* Materials for Engineering
* Statics and Structures
* Systems Modelling, Simulation and Computation
* A Modern Foreign Language
* Dynamics and Fluid Mechanics
* Electromechanical System Design
* Engineering Mathematics and Technical Computing
* Technical Operations Management

After finishing the 4 terms doing General Engineering you specialise for 15 months in your major.

The courses are solid and dense, and we don’t only develop knowledge but also skills. The latter is the most valued by employers. The course structure enables you to work in high-paid management/direction/senior jobs. Just go to google/indeed/glassdor and search for jobs. Read what they require and then you’ll realise what the labour market is demanding.

I’ve got many friends at Imperial coursing EEE. And Believe me, whenever you ask them about something which is not analog/digital circuits, signal processing... they “feel impotent”, and that’s what a friend of mine literally told me (she’s a 3rd year student that I’ve known since I was a kid).

Obv I don’t wanna talk **** about other unis. Imperial is top 10 in the world for loads of courses. Same with Southampton/Bristol/Edinburgh, they’re top unis, specially Bristol and Southampton. They’re really good if you wanna focus on one stream and isolate yourself from the other stuff.

For instance, in the “Statics & Structures” module we get taught about civil engineering (trusses, final element analysis, shear stress, bending, (2nd) moment of inertia, flexural rigidity, poissons ratio...). In such module we needed to study the circuits for the systems that are used to measure the deflection and deformation of bridges. The students specialising in civil engineering gained a knowledge on circuit systems used to measure the deflection of structures (integrated circuits with Wheatstone bridges...). And that gives you more analytical skills that are attract employers.

I hope this was useful. You can also check unistats to see how students from each uni actually rate their courses.

Manchester.

I would also rate them better than Oxbridge and Imperial at least for EEE.
