Taiwan Tech announced today (October 24th, 2017) that Taiwanese competitors won four gold medals, one silver, five bronze and twenty-seven medallions of excellence at the 2017 WorldSkills Competition. A competitor trained by Taiwan Tech won gold in the electronics category, setting a record of winning the championship in the electronics category at three consecutive competitions.

 

It was mentioned in the university’s press release today that the biennial WorldSkills Competition this year was held in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Taiwan selected 47 competitors to participate in 42 skill categories, and Chinese Taipei won a total of four golds, one silver, five bronze and twenty-seven medallions of excellence. Twenty-nine of the contenders are Taiwan Tech students, winning two gold medals, one silver, two bronze and sixteen medallions of excellence. The competitor in the electronics category helped Taiwan Tech set a record of winning the championship in the category in three consecutive competitions.

 

President of Taiwan Tech Liao Ching-Jong said that for several years, Taiwan Tech has been developing tailor-made programs in applied science and technology for Taiwanese competitors to proactively nurture their special expertise as well as fortifying their professional and language skills so as to enhance their international competitiveness. The university has sent quite a few students abroad for exchanges and internships, hoping that they will become world-class competitors with international levels of technical expertise.

 

Taiwan Tech students trained by Associate Professor LinYuan-Hsiang of the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering have won gold medals consecutively in 2013, 2015 and 2017, marking the best performance in the electronics category in the last 10 years.

 

Gold medal winner in the electronics category Tsai Yu-Chih, who studies in the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering, followed in his older brother’s footsteps and majored in electronic engineering. He has always aspired to win honors for the country. Tsai said that to win in the electronics category takes not only technical skill but also a solid foundation in professional theories. In addition to accumulating hands-on practice, he has never ceased to learn from failure. He expects himself to always do his best and reads a large number of books and articles in their original languages.

 

Tsai Yu-Chih has strived to improve his patience and precision for this competition as he did not always pay attention to details. Besides striving for excellence, he also constantly reminds himself to be as careful as possible and reduce the chances of error. His efforts paid off in this year’s competition, in which he got almost full scores in three items out of four.

 

Lin Yuan-Hsiang, who is responsible for training competitors in the electronics category, won a gold medal in the 1993 WorldSkills Competition. He is also the first Taiwanese competitor to win gold in the electronics category. Lin said that since he has had the experience of representing Taiwan at the WorldSkills Competition, he is aware of the skills that are needed to train students for this international competition. Besides, since the coaching team of Taiwan Tech is composed of former competitors, they are able to pass down their experience and help students achieve outstanding results.
