I'm looking to apply to a general engineering course in 2021 and have found the general engineering MEng offered at Sheffield. I'm looking to apply to courses similar to that of Cambridge and Bristol, where the first couple of years are general and after you specialise into a single discipline. Although Sheffield ranks fairly well in other engineering courses I can't find any information on the quality of this course. Could anyone tell me how their course compares to courses of the same structure offered at Cambridge, Bristol, etc? I'm struggling to find universities that offer this type of course, and allow specialisation into mechanical and aerospace, as there are the disciplines I'm most interested in. Is there any other unis that I should consider that offer this type of course, apart from Cambridge, oxford, Bristol and Durham?Thanks.

I know Lancaster do this and it's got a very good reputation for engineering (increasing each year)

Other Russell Group Unis do it: Warwick, KCL, Exeter, just to name a few of the top of my head. There are others but you're looking for general engineering rather than a fixed focus like mechanical.
Even other Unis such as Leicester do it.

I've had a look at the courses offered at Warwick and Exeter but they don't offer specialisation into aerospace; only civil, mechanical, electrical etc. I'm most interested in either mechanical or aerospace at the moment so I don't want to go to a uni that offers only mechanical in case I decide I'd rather do aero in the final years. I've heard that a lot of jobs for aerospace engineers are available to mechanical engineers, but not the other way round, so I'm not sure whether I should still apply to these uni's that only offer mechanical and not aero or I should find courses that offer both. Thanks for the reply.

My son has firmed an offer for this course for 2020. Liverpool and Bath do similar courses and both offer aerospace as a specialism later. You could also look at Mechanical engineering courses which allow you to pick from specialist modules in your 2nd, 3rd or 4th years.
