Tan Kai Hao Andrew (DCPE 3rd Year, AY1617)
Award: Gold Medal World Skills Singapore (WSS), Information Network Cabling

Andrew Tan has always wanted to be in the Information Technology field as he has a passion for computers.
An avid computer gamer in his growing up years, Andrew had ample opportunities to come into contact with different types of computers. Joining ITE after secondary school sparked a new passion within him as he grew fond of both Engineering & IT.

Andrew also realised the importance of working hard in order to achieve his life goals. This led him to further his studies in Computer Engineering at Singapore Polytechnic (SP) after he graduated from ITE.

He joined the WorldSkills Singapore (WSS) competition in the Information Network Cabling category to broaden his skillset and to have a greater understanding of the industry. In WSS, he is exposed to a wide range of challenges, such as cable management, splicing of fibre glass and troubleshooting. With the additional experience gained through WSS, he is better prepared for work in the industry in future.
