4/14/2017

Held every two years, the WorldSkills Competition is the greatest vocational education and skills excellence Competition in the world. Shanghai is currently bidding for the 46th WorldSkills Competition in 2021. After a series of activities and in-depth study by the committee, the election themed “New youth, New skill, New dreams” has selected 5 bid ambassadors. Fu Yicheng, year 2 Manufacturing Systems Engineering student from SBC has been chosen to be one of the 5 bid ambassadors for this competition and is the only student amongst the ambassadors.

In order to expand the influence of Shanghai’s bid to host the Competition in 2021, the Competition Organizing Committee organised a bid ambassador election activity from 23rd February 2017. SBC student Fu Yicheng is very creative  and has previously won the Junior Edison Award when he was in high school. Fu Yicheng said he doesn’t like a learning style which focuses simply on passing examinations. ; however, he feels he is lucky that SBC provides him an environment where teachers encourage students to innovate.

Fu Yicheng told us that his short-term goal is to go abroad to study: "I want to promote my own projects into industry but there are difficulties, at least my personal ability is not enough, so I want to continue my studies abroad and continue to promote the industrial application of my ideas." The international atmosphere in SBC also helps Fu Yicheng to achieve this" small target " and, in the long run, he hopes to undertake scientific research.
