Description

WorldSkills International (WSI) is a global not-for-profit organization that aims to support national agencies in the promotion of vocational education through competitions, often referred to as the Skills Olympics. Autodesk, Inc., is a global partner of WSI, and Autodesk technology is used in a number of competitions covering manufacturing; architecture, engineering, and construction; and media and entertainment. This class aims to provide insight into the benefits of engaging students in WSI competitions to help improve standards. We will showcase how the training of students in the use of Inventor software for their participation in the Mechanical Engineering Design CAD competition has been a catalyst for improvement for all students at New College Lanarkshire by way of integration into the curriculum. You will also hear from Autodesk customers who are reaping the benefits of a workforce that is highly skilled due to employee participation in the competitions, and you will see the latest design project used for the U.K. team's training, which incorporates Inventor software, the Autodesk 360 cloud-computing platform, and the Fusion 360 3D CAD design app.

Matt Bell soon found a passion for design engineering while studying as an engineering apprenticeship. Matt was quickly using the skills he'd developed in the workplace as a design engineer to support young designers through teaching the use of CAD tools at a local college, and he soon moved into education on a full-time basis. In 2006 Matt accepted the appointment of WorldSkills (WS) U.K. expert for mechanical engineering design, and he trained U.K. competitors to success at WS events in 2007, 2009, 2011, and 2013, in addition to EuroSkills gold in 2010. Matt has spearheaded the WS national competition since 2007. The competition is now the largest engineering competition in the WS portfolio, providing a fantastic opportunity for young people to showcase their talents. Matt recently accepted the appointment of cluster lead for all WS U.K. engineering competitions. In 2011 Matt joined Autodesk, Inc., as an education manager, and he's thriving on the challenge to ensure that every student has access to the very latest digital design tools.
