Please do not bother Tyler if you are not an engineering student OR do not have the required skills (read listing again please). Tyler is a busy guy and I don't need him asking me, “Dude, WTF did you send this guy to me?!? He doesn't even remotely qualify!!” Let me tell you that if your comprehension skills are shit to begin with, you're probably not going to even get considered. As with most intern jobs, it will probably start with the administrative grunt work that nobody else wants to do, but there will definitely be opportunities to work on the cool stuff here and there. Good luck and maybe I'll meet you in the final panel interview.
