In terms of Engineering industrial links, Imperial is the winner imho.

And then you can probably pick any other of the Russell group.

Appreciate you are an engineer (?) but that not what I hear from colleagues in engineering. They think courses such as Bath and Loughborough are very strong for making links with industry to get their students good placements for internships, years in industry and grad schemes.

Do they actively help students get plscements or is it very much up to the student whether they get one or not ? In other words Student has to apply and do applications themselves.

Some non-RG universities have decent engineering departments as well like strathclyde or herriot-watt

Certainly Loughborough do a lot and are in regular contact with employers. Of course students have to do the applications themselves.

Oxbridge don't have good links - you need to look for those offering a year in industry and/or those strong in Formula student.

No - not Imperial and RG is irrelevant - accredited courses and a year in industry to get a job these days.
