Internship Part Time
Searching for internships led me to see some internships that are part time only requiring 10-18 Hours per week for the spring semester. Why do employers do this knowing that you will be really limited in what you do in regards with time with both getting trained and projects? Is there a high chance it will lead to a summer internship? Can anyone input some of their experiences?

Mechanical Building Services experience
I've recently taken an interest mechanical building services as I am excited by the various structural projects that I could potentially work on.
My question: (hopefully someone with experience).. what is it like working in this sector as a mechanical engineer? Are ME's regarded as highly as other disciplines? How is the career progression?
I also love the idea of working in busy cities- but if the industry doesn't allow me to utilise my engineering degree I'm not sure it's for me!

How to attenuate too much play (1 degree) for a satellite dish?
Long story short, someone screwed up along the line before I got to the project. Now there's too much noise/play in the rotations of the system. It's a satellite-tracking dish. It bobs by about a degree when stationary. What's the best approach to this? I've thought about rotational dampers.

Looking for a wire material that holds its shape and is Solderable
I am looking to order a large batch of wire pins that have a diameter of around .025". The wire lengths are about .35" long and bent in the middle to form a right angle.
However before I make an order, I need to figure out a good material. These wire pins will be soldered to a PCB and have some very small repetitive force on them, so I am looking for a material that is both solderable and can hold its shape. I have been playing around with different steels and stainless steel wires from Mcmaster, but while they are very rigid and hold their shape, they don't solder very well if at all.
Anyone have any materials, surface treatments, or platings in mind for this part?

I applied to a city engineer position and they want me to come in to take a written exam?
The folks who run some city in California have sent me an e-mail inviting me to come in an take a test in their community center in two weeks. Has anyone ever had to take such a test and what did it entail?
