Good facilities. Huge number of very interesting and important projects under development. Highly diverse group of students and staff. Very close to London (Uxbridge) with all that offers. Opportunity to work part-time and earn as you learn.
Pay's not great, to be honest. The Uni seems obsessed with grabbing cash off overseas students to the exclusion of all else.
Brunel is known for its 'brutalist' building style. You either love it or loathe it.
Brunel is a centre of engineering excellence, recognised world-wide. A connection with Brunel will always look prestigious on your CV. Some of the best minds in engineering, and a laid-back, liberal working atmosphere. Superb resources. A great place to make business contacts for a high-level future in engineering.
Pay is poor. Location (Uxbridge) and campus site both leave you feeling a bit cut off from the rest of the metropolis. Job security for teaching and academic staff can be a headache. There are always funding issues, and there's quite a bit of in-fighting among the senior leaders.
Great contacts in upcoming companies.
