Meet Loy Chen Yi

Loy Chen Yi has always marvelled at the complexity of machines and equipment, and wondered how the different parts work together. For Chen Yi, preparation is the key to success at the world’s biggest vocational education and skills excellence event.

He wakes up at eight every morning and after a quick breakfast, he carries out programming using the MasterCAM software, and practises on a Computer Numeric Control (CNC) Milling machine. His training goes on until evening and this repeats itself the next day. Chen Yi’s rigorous training in machine operations and knowledge of engineering tools has put him in good stead for WorldSkills Competition 2017!
