    Details of BAE's graduate programmes, no particular mention of paying tuition fees on the website but that's probably to cover their backs if a year in industry student isn't up to scratch so that they can't expect it, I think that as long as it's not put down in writing it's just regarded as a possibilty)
    The labs and workshops at Loughborough are truly EPIC as well (at least for Mechanical Engineering, although I'm used to the school's workshop where one of the sanders will randomly start itself up after you've switched it off).
    BAE will accept engineers from all major disciplines, I'm not sure about things like biochemical and electromechanical as they're more specialist I think.
    This year in industry is looking to be expensive though, every time I look up the cost of accomodation in Kent I'm shocked!
    Also... New Dr Who tonight!!!!

    they make all our military shit. for example, the new supercarriers are of BAE design.

    I'm not sure if you can start off with a military engineering focused degree, but you can definitely go on to do postgrad stuff funded by the MoD/ RAF (not sure about RN/ the army), the MoD funds a warship design MEng course for its graduate programme and the RAF has its own university (RAF Cranwell).
    With regards the woodwork teacher, it's a combined disk/ belt sander in a metalwork workshop, all of the staff at school who have engineering degrees call it that so I'll stick with that name (mainly because if I changed it I'd have to go back and change the wording on about 10 pages of my coursework and I'm a bit sick of it now!).

    My dad works for BAE Systems in Govan (Glasgow) worked in the yards for donkies years doing welding now does quality control or somthing like that. Ive got a small collection of commemerative mugs for launches lol.

    Its practically all MOD work they do. I think they did work for some arabian mob too.

    EDIT: Scottish elections are soon, dont really know who to vote for. I think either labour or snp will be in government maybe with a small coalition with minor parties like green or something. Is the alternative vote a form of proportional representation voting? Guess i will have to look it up.

    I worked with them for 5 years in the Middle East, they manufacture all sorts, weapons, missiles, vehicles, planes, subs, boats etc etc, you will need a good educational background and some excellent references, both personal and thru school/college.

    someone had one of these up for £100 on tpu, £80 for ones that don't work isn't worth it, i mean sure if you get lucky with baking or something you could have quadfire but...

    aim for this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ATI-HD-4870x2...TV_Cards_TW&hash=item4aaa8a4245#ht_500wt_1156

    is there a charge for automatic bidding, if not i'll set my limit to £80 and activate it on every card better then mine on ebay

    you could get a 10 year old to eat ice and keep farting in your house? that could perhaps be an alternative to an expensive AC unit... considering that if you asked foxconn nicely enough they'd probably send you one of their kids.

    I'll be away on a nice trip to Barcelona that day. Guess I'll have to wait till I retrun to see if any good stuff blunders happened.

    Try Parcel 2 Go, it will give you prices for a lot of couriers with all sorts of options/prices. Was the cheapest way I could ship my 26KG Silverstone FT02.

    according to this only pacelforce will ship his parcel and it'll cost £60

    id try it yourself mighty mission as i made it a meter in every direction(you never told us dimensions) - either way it looks like the cheapest method of delivery is by car
