COIMBATORE: Sunil Kumar Sharma, an alumnus of Coimbatore-based Gedee Technical Training Institute, is one of the eight medal winners from India at the WorldSkills competition that was held in Brazil last week. The 20-year-old was a part of the 29-member team that represented India in plastic die engineering skills at the 43rd WorldSkills Competition held at Sao Paulo, Brazil between August 11 and 16. “The competition is considered the Olympics of skill development and is all the more important at a time when the Indian government is looking to develop vocational skills among the youth,” said Sunil’s teacher M L Sebastian. Of the 29, five members were from Tamil Nadu, and two won medallions of excellence during the meet.
“My task was to make a plastic product that was designed by me. It was divided in three segments: design using software, casting a mould for the design and fabricating the product. I designed a joystick and used polystyrene to make it,” said Sunil who returned to Coimbatore from Brazil on Thursday. Sunil added, “It took me almost 19 hours to complete the task.” A total of 11 countries participated in the plastic die engineering skills contest. Sunil, a native of Rajasthan, was a student of diploma in tool and die engineering at the Institute from 2011 to 2014. His study was sponsored by a company in Maharashtra, where Sunil’s father Madanlal Sharma is a cook. “After completing my course, Gedee Training Institute helped me undergo training in mould making. I visited China and Taiwan in the last 12 months for my training,” said Sunil. It is because of this training and the guidance at Gedee Institute, that Sunil acquired skills in mould making. He lives in a hostel here in the city, and Friday will be his last day in Coimbatore. He now aspires to join an engineering college in Pune. “My aim is to become a specialist in mould making,” said Sunil. – Courtesy   / Visit    The WorldSkills Competition    /   WorldSkills India – An initiative of the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC)
