Dieter Hastings, a student at the Centre for Advanced Technologies, won bronze at the Skills Canada National Competition, held last week in Vancouver.

Dieter competed in the design and drafting portion of the competition, earning Seneca its first ever Skills Canada National Competition medal. Last year, Dieter won gold at the Ontario Technological Skills Competition after placing first in the computer-aided manufacturing category.

This event is Canada's only national, Olympic-style, multi-trade and technology competition for students and apprentices. Every year, approximately 500 participants from all regions come together to compete in more than 40 trade and technology areas. Students vie to be crowned the best in their chosen disciplines.
