Mastercam Supports WorldSkills 2019 in Kazan, Russia
Mastercam will be attending the 45th WorldSkills Competition in Kazan, Russia. WorldSkills 2019 takes place August 22 – 27 at the Kazan Expo International Exhibition Centre, a new venue that was built especially for the event.
Improving our world with the power of skills, WorldSkills is an organization working to raise the profile and recognition of skilled people and to show how important skills are in achieving economic growth and personal success. WorldSkills Competition takes place every other year in a new location each time. This year, students from 67 countries will compete in 56 skills in Kazan. In 2021, the competition moves to Shanghai, China.
Mastercam sponsors four manufacturing and engineering technology competitions at WorldSkills: CNC Turning, CNC Milling, Plastic Die Engineering, and the Manufacturing Team Challenge. We are also helping out with a fifth competency in the FutureSkills block, programming a part on a DMG MORI machine using Mastercam.
As the official CAM sponsor and a Global Industry Partner, we are looking forward to exciting competition at the world championships of skills this year. Special thanks to our Mastercam Reseller in Russia, Colla Ltd., for putting in so much work preparing for WorldSkills Kazan.
WorldSkills provides a stunning showcase for skills competition and development on a global stage. The planning and organization necessary to host an event like this are tremendous. Mastercam is proud to partner with such a fantastic organization. We continue to be impressed by their efforts and impact.
We also want to acknowledge the extraordinary efforts of schools, teachers, students, families, and communities that go into preparing for competition at this level. Good luck to all of the students competing—see you in Kazan!
