We are sorry to say goodbye to this live wire! Before he returns to finish his engineering degree at Cambridge University, Michael tells us about his internship at Labman:

The fantastically diverse environment to which you’re put in the deep end, has been incredibly insightful. From dealing with such a variety of top and lower level engineering problems I’m privileged to have a practical understanding of the workings of business and projects.

Learning about push-in fasteners for connecting tube to metal was such a lesson that I’ll never look at problems like that the same. It is a small piece of trivial knowledge but for a first-time professional like myself this has really opened my eyes to the beauty of standardised components!

Finally, the people at Labman have been better than I could’ve hope for. There’s so much support, humour and skill so tightly squeezed together it makes life a lot easier. This also brings me to the extra-curricular activities which add a massive relief if stress has had you caught up.

All-in-all my internship was a terrific experience, one I will use the lessons from for the rest of my career.
