Tim Ekadanta/ Ekadanta Team

Ekadanta team successfully advanced to the final stage of Petroleum Integrated Days (PETROLIDA) 2024, an international competition by Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) in collaboration with Unilever. As UII representatives, the team consisted of Rifki Nurul Mukarim, Nisrina Faiza Mufid, and Atiqoh Fairuz Hamidah. They successfully placed 4th in the International Business Case Competition.

There were many stages that they had to go through to get to that point. Starting from preliminary, semifinal, and final. In the preliminary stage, there was a case study in the form of a problem faced by the company, they brainstormed and made an executive summary of the solution to the problem. Next for the semifinal stage, they make a full report or solution proposal related to the given case study. At this stage, they held discussions with their advisor, Putri Dwi Annisa S.T., M.Sc., to optimize each aspect of the assessment that was considered so that it could provide an appropriate solution for the company.

Final Presentation/ Presentasi Final

Team Ekadanta’s effort and dedication paid off, they were selected to advance to the final stage to present their solution in front of the judges in person. At the final stage, they prepared various things such as leaflets, x-banners, and Pitch Deck PPT. Not to forget, they also practiced to be fluent in the presentation which was done in English.

Of course, all the processes they went through were not free from obstacles. One of them is the short preparation time for the final, as well as UII students who are in the midterm exam period (UTS). To overcome this, the Ekadanta Team tried to equalize their free time to take the time to practice together.

“Becoming a finalist in an international competition is a new and valuable experience for us. It’s not easy, but thanks to teamwork and great also supportive supervisors, we are able to commit in striving to give our best,” said the Ekadanta Team.

Therefore, Sekar said, “I also participated in several activities such as Community of International Students (CIS) to gain experience and develop my soft skills.” She also shared some tips to support the smooth running of the lecture, “Try not to skip classes because college is actually your own needs. To build good relationships with your peers, get to know your friends, take advantage of organizations or UKM to channel your interests and hobbies.”

Meanwhile, Sri Cempaka revealed, “Actually, i went through the lectures quite relaxedly because most of the lectures took online class. A few tips from me might be to be smart managing your time studying engineering requires good time management. So that we can divide our time between studying in class, practicum, group work and resting.” she said.

Happy Studying at IUP IE UII

While studying at IUP IE UII, both graduates feel very happy because they get a lot of experience while learning. For example, they go on educational visits every year. “Joining IUP IE UII is very exciting because here there are international mobility activities. So that students can find out the world of work abroad because the program invites students to go there. I went to Turkey and it was really fun.” Sekar said.

Similarly, Sri Cempaka said, “I gained useful knowledge while studying here. Not only theoretically about industry, but also practice such as the knowledge of socializing in the industrial field with people around me.” Additionally, they hope that IUP IE UII will be better in the future, “⁠Hopefully in the future IUP IE UII will continue to develop and maintain the quality it has and can even improve this quality with better facilities as well.” they said.

As an Industrial Engineering student, understanding industrial practices in developed countries such as Japan is extremely valuable. Through Factory Visit, students visited several leading factories in Japan, such as Yamaha, Suzuki, and Toyota. Annisa said, “IP students are invited to visit well-known factories that already have sophisticated industrial systems, such as automation and so on. So that later the implementation of the industrial world that they have learned during college can be reflected in the industries visited, such as Kaizen, Poka Yoke, and 5S (Seiri, Seiton, Seiso, Seiketsu, Shitsuke).”

City Tour and Cultural Immersion

Furthermore, there was the City Tour and Cultural Immersion. The destination cities include Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, and Fukuoka. IP students are invited to explore the beauty and uniqueness of Japanese culture through visits to historical sites, parks, and bustling city centers. On this trip, they will have the opportunity to experience cultural immersion, deepening their understanding of the country’s history and traditions.

“It was amazing, we visited a leading Japanese corporation and one of the top universities in the world. We even got to see stuff we’ve only talked about in class, like Poka Yoke and the Toyota Production System (TPS), right there at the source. The university visit was just as impressive, with its stunning campus and engaging classes. The highlight, however, was learning about their emphasis on hydrogen energy as the future of energy,” said Alfina Dewi Hendryani, one of the IP students who participated.
