The WorldSkills competition is the biggest vocational education and skills event in the world. Participants are selected from competitions held in over 70 WorldSkills’ member countries and regions and represent the best of their peers in more than 45 skills.

Competitors execute specific tasks demonstrating technical ability in their field, including construction and building technology, creative arts and fashion, information technology, social services, transportation, engineering, and more.

Competitors in Mechanical Engineering Skill 05 use Inventor® 3D CAD software to develop the parts, assemblies, animations, and drawings of the design as it would be done in a commercial engineering department. Autodesk provides competitors and mentors free* software and learning materials.

WorldSkills is dedicated to supporting competitions as a means of promoting vocational education and training nationally, regionally, and globally. Learn more at
