Hi there!

That's a lot of university offers, congratulations!
For Cranfield is it the Advanced Mechanical Engineering MSc you hold an offer for?

If so there's a lot of information available on the course page on the website: https://www.cranfield.ac.uk/Courses/...al-Engineering
If you scroll down to the "Your career" section if shows you the kind of roles previous students on this course have gone on to do.
Cranfield also has a dedicated careers service that runs training sessions on employability etc, as well as organising regular careers and networking events. They can also help you out with things like writing a CV and preparing for an interview.
Cranfield has great links with industry, and is very well known within the wider engineering community, which helps with employability.
If you want to know more about what it's like to study the course here there's some posts about it on our blogs, as well as posts about other aspects of life at Cranfield: https://blogs.cranfield.ac.uk/?s=adv...al+engineering

Is there anything else you'd like to know?

Hi RRS.1627,

Congratulations on your offer to study with us! We understand it can be difficult to choose the right university for you, but here are some great advantages of undertaking the MSc Mechanical Engineering with us here at Northumbria :

- The course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and fully meets the academic requirements to become a Chartered Engineer. This accreditation also means the course's content is always in line with the latest developments in the sector.
- Employability is embedded throughout all aspects of the course, meaning you will leave with the necessary skills to really excel within the sector
- As a research rich university, you will be able to lead your own research based on your interests. You will be supported by a team of research-active industrial practitioners, renowned researchers and technologists, whose combined knowledge will ensure you leave with an in-depth understanding of key mechanical engineering practice and research.
- During the course, you will have access to our dedicated engineering laboratories, which are continuously updated. Our facilities include mechanical and energy systems experimentation labs, rapid product development and performance analysis, materials testing and characterisation, 3D digital design and manufacturing process performance.

These are just some of the reasons why Northumbria is a fantastic choice. You can read more about the course on the website at https://www.northumbria.ac.uk/study-...sc-ft-dtfmey6/. We hope this helps and please do let us know if you have any further questions!

Best

These university reps really aren't doing their universities reputation any favours.

The OP was applying for postgrad courses. There is no limit to how many of these you can apply to, as you apply directly to the universities, rather than through UCAS.

In my opinion Cranfield is by far and away the strongest in terms of industry links and reputation, followed closely by Loughborough and Leeds. I'd suggest focusing on those three, personally.

1 has the best reputation in general, 8 has the best reputation for engineering. i'd shortlist 1, 3, 4 and 8 and prob go for 8 overall.

Hi RRS.1627 :hello:

Congratulations on all your offers and for receiving an offer to study MSc Mechanical Engineering at Loughborough!

There's lots of factors to consider when it comes to making a university decision. Perhaps have a think and weigh up the importance of each to you and what it is you want from a university, to help narrow down your decision These factors could include...

Course - look carefully at the topics and modules you will study on the programme. Would you be happy studying all of them? A degree is a big commitment, so it's important that you will be happy studying the course for its entire duration. You might also consider the course's reputation, accreditation, facilities and career opportunities post-study. Our graduates have gone on to work for a variety of reputable companies including Airbus, BAE Systems, Caterpillar, Chicago Bridge and Iron and Jaguar Land Rover in Mechanical, Structural and Developmental Engineering roles.

Recent graduate destinations include:
  • Airbus, Mechanical Engineer
  • BAE Systems, Structural Engineer
  • Caterpillar, Graduate Engineer
  • Chicago Bridge and Iron, Pipeline Engineer
  • Jaguar Land Rover, Product Development Engineer

Student support - take a look at the support services available at the university to ensure they have everything you need to succeed during your studies and beyond. In terms of employability, Loughborough ranked 1st in the UK and in the top 20 globally for employer-student connections in the QS Graduate Employability Rankings 2020, due to the relationships we have developed with all kinds of businesses from across the world. We also have a superb Careers Network team that can help you develop your skills, understand your strengths and explore your career options across a wide range of industries, both in the UK and internationally.

Our services and resources include:
  • one-to-one advice and drop-ins with professional careers consultants
  • workshops on career planning and job hunting
  • guidance and advice from employers and alumni
  • links to thousands of job vacancies and internships
  • specialist support and advice for international students
  • practice job interviews and assessment centres
  • access to information, career planning tools and further resources via our comprehensive website.

Location - Would you prefer a city or a university market town like Loughborough? What are the transport links like if you want to travel? Loughborough is well-connected by road, rail and air, and offers everything you need as a student and more within easy reach, offering a friendly, close-knit community environment.



Campus - linked to location, what sort of campus would you prefer? At Loughborough, we have a stunning 440-acre single-site campus to call home, with everything you need as a student and more, including green open spaces, landscaped gardens, woodlands, academic buildings, accommodation, sports and leisure facilities, the Students' Union, and a variety of restaurants, shops, bars and cafes.



Accommodation - would you prefer to live on or off campus, and what options are there? At Loughborough, we have three self-catered halls of residence available for postgraduates, either on or a short walk from campus. There's also a wide range of private accommodation available too within easy reach of campus.

Student experience - what extra-curricular activities and opportunities are there for you to get involved with to meet new people and develop your skills? For example, we have lots of opportunities available with the Students' Union, LU Arts and Loughborough Sport.

I hope this helps! You'll find lots more information at our online prospectus, including reasons to study here and student stories. You can also find independent student reviews on StudentCrowd.

All the best!
-Dan
