Humber grads Theo Willert and Avery Bird have won bronze in the mechatronics category at the WorldSkills 2017 competition in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
The two electromechanical engineering grads, who previously won gold in mechatronics at Skills Ontario and Skills Canada, also won Best In Nation for their performance among the other Canadian competitors.
This is the first time Canadian competitors have won a medal at the bi-annual WorldSkills competition. They were the only Canadian team that medaled this year.
Theo and Avery were coached by Neal Mohammed, Anthony Nyman and Mauricio Toigo, and were supported by many others in the Humber community as well as numerous industry partners.
Congratulations to Theo and Avery!
