JJ recently left us after his summer placement at Labman. He was a team player, a hard worker and he will be missed! We just got chance for a quick catch-up before he left. Wishing you all the best in your future endeavours and hopefully we will see you again soon!

"Working at Labman this summer has been a lot of fun and a great learning experience. I’m very glad that I’ve had the opportunity to come all this way to meet and work with all the great people here. My favourite thing about working at Labman has been designing and making drawings for various parts on all projects. While designing these parts I have gained a much greater knowledge of how to design parts more effectively for use and manufacturing efficiency.

Non-work related, Labman is nothing short of amazing when it comes to all the activities and events it holds, and I’m sure it’s nearly impossible to be bored while working here. I’ve enjoyed all the get togethers, parties, and in general hang outs with everyone while here. I’ve overall had a great time and I hope to eventually come back for another internship, or maybe even a job".
