Students of the S1 Computer Engineering and S1 Electrical Engineering Study Programs, Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science, Universitas Teknokrat Indonesia continue to conduct activities that can broaden students’ knowledge in the field of IoT and electricity.
In addition to students, lecturers are also required to be able to develop abilities in their respective fields, one of which is by conducting research collaborations with the industry.
On Thursday, 08/18/2022, students of the Bachelor of Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering at the Universitas Teknokrat Indonesia held an industrial visit to the National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN) Tanjung Bintang, South Lampung, theBRIN Mining Technology Research Center, and CV Sapi Sport Tanjung Bintang.
The industrial visit to BRIN was received by the Head of the BRIN Mining Technology Research Center, Dr. Eng. Widi Astuti, MT.
The result of an industrial visit to the BRIN Mining Technology Research Center is collaborative research on IoT-based control systems for processes in mining technology systems.
Then the visit was continued to CV Sapi Sport to test the digital smart collar tool for monitoring cow health by lecturers and students as the output of the Kemendikbudristek RI vocational grant research and student MBKM program.
On this industrial visit, students were accompanied by Vice-Dean for Academic Affairs, Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science, Dr. Si. Dedi Darwis, M.Kom, Head of S1 Computer Engineering Study Program Styawati, S.T., M.Cs., S. and several lecturers including Samsugi, M.Eng., Ade Surahman, M.Kom., and Novia Utami Putri, M.T.
According to the Head of the S1 Computer Engineering Study Program, Styawati, S.T., M.Cs, the industrial visit was to provide students with experience related to IoT-based technology that is currently needed by industry.
Vice-Rector, Dr. H Mahathir Muhammad, S.E., M.M., said this industrial visit was indeed needed so that students knew the details of industrial problems in the field. This is needed so that the knowledge in the classroom can be put into practice in the real world.
Mr. Mahathir argues, that technology makes it easier for humans to do business. Therefore, he wants all of this student’s knowledge to be applied in the industrial realm. Of course, following their competency based on campus.
