Regarding competition and learning, he has his own unique insights to share with us.
I joined SDC in the first half of the semester. Freshman including sophomore mainly participated in the training organized by SDC and did some preliminary research work with seniors in the indoor group. In my junior year, I was fortunate to be the leader of the interior team, responsible for interior design, including furniture and lighting design.
How does the senior think the SDC competition is different from other competitions? How does participating in the competition help professional learning?
First of all, it is a real-world construction project. We need to consider issues such as structure and price. The second point is to broaden our horizons, because SDC is an international competition. The participating teams include many excellent schools at home and abroad. Everyone Interpreting decathlon from different directions and different angles, so you can see a variety of programs worth learning; another point is teamwork, this competition requires 30 to 50 people to work together, and different groups need to coordinate with each other . This is also very helpful for our future work. When we truly move towards social work, we will also face cooperation and cooperation between different types of work.
How do seniors plan their time and deal with the relationship between learning and competition?
I think time is squeezed out. The first way is to increase time and make good use of the winter and summer vacations and weekends to participate in the competition. There is also to improve efficiency. For me, if there is a DDL (Deadline), I will be very anxious and work hard to do this. If there is no DDL, I feel that I am not doing things so seriously.
In fact, studies and competitions are not contradictory to each other. They are complementary. For example, when I participated in SDC, I did a lot of interior design and did a lot of refined design. By the time I was a residential area in my senior year, I had With some experience, it will be relatively easy to design.
From the perspective of seniors, what are the skills that we must master but are easily overlooked?
I feel that there is no correct answer to this question, and it needs to be justified. Who are you, your Party A or your teacher, what is your task, and what kind of design you want to make. When it is practical, it must be practical, and when it is conceptual, it must be conceptual. You are doing a design class , Do a practical project or do a competition, the required goals are different.
