UK internship (no longer) available

Anyone interested in a northern UK based internship ? We are an engineering design company, with many areas of expertise in electronics, software and mechanical design and manufacture, and our current crop of interns are returning whence they came.   We have some amazing projects coming up at the moment which will eventually look great on anyone's CV. 

This is an entry level position, for which we will pay expenses only, for a suitable applicant to gain access to our tools and knowledge. We aim to have fun along the way.

Internship available for 1 month, 3 months or 6 months, starting Mid-September or later.

Now, that my internship is over, I figured to give you a short idea, of what I've learned:

Welding (MIG and TIG), if Eliot teaches you how to do it, don't forget to wear gloves...
How to use the laser cutter (best thing ever ;-))
How to use the plasma cutter
How to work with sheet metal (cutting (using a big press), bending, spot-welding, filing/ sanding and polishing it)
Surface mount soldering using soldering paste and improving my soldering skills
Finding the correct electronic components in storage (even though I'm still ridiculously slow...)
I already knew how to work with wood and make PCB's, but if you want to learn that, you are definitely at the right address

I probably forgot something, it was just so much.

After work I was allowed to use the work shop for private projects, so my family got self made Christmas presents.

In the picture you can see stuff I made for fun: an 18 Shot Nerf gun for my brother, a wooden bowl made from a topographical map of the lake we live at for my mum, a Japanese puzzle box for my dad and some lock picks for me.
Pleasure having you over, thanks for all your hard work. :)

Hi Steve,
Are the internships still available?
All the best,

Sorry, as Kiteman says, I now live in the USA.

Don't be sorry that you live in the USA. Ok, that thing with the tea way back was a bit overboard.


Worker dormitory housing at Autodesk? Sorry.

A dormitory is much to fancy, the nest under my desk is just fine.

This post was made in 2011, so I'm guessing they aren't.

Not only that, but Steve doesn't even live in the UK any more!
