UK engineering programs circa 1980

Terms searched: none

It's 1980(ish) and my MC, Adam, needs to decide where to apply to uni.
He's looking for a school with a strong engineering department; right now he wants to study aero-/astronautical engineering ... but that could change.

Unfortunately, he doesn't quite have the academic resume to get into any of the big(gest) name places. So he's looking for somewhere - in the UK or Ireland - that gets an A- or B+ for content and a B or B- for reputation. (Tuition is not an issue; both parents are moderately successful white collar.)

Anyone have ideas as what is going to be on his final list?

Also: was acceptance entirely about grades, or did they look at things like school activities, community service, etc.?
