Dr. dr. Sri Winarni, M.Kes as the resource person in this event led the MBKM FGD which was attended by the Undiknas student team. The MBKM policy was created by the Indonesian Minister of Education, Culture, Research and Technology to prepare relevant human resources in the era of industry 4.0 and society 5.0. The MBKM program can be followed by all active students in Indonesia with a maximum time of 3 semesters to study outside the study program or outside the university. The legal basis for implementing MBKM at Undip is the Regulation of the Minister of Education and Culture of the Republic of Indonesia Number 3 of 2020 concerning National Higher Education Standards and the Undip Rector’s Regulation Number 17 of 2021 concerning Implementation of Learning in the Framework of the Independent Learning-Independent Campus Program at Undip.

The MBKM program for 6 months can be converted to a maximum of 20 credits, of which value conversion can take two forms, namely structured form and hybrid form. The form of learning activities for the MBKM program can be in the form of Domestic and Foreign Student Exchange (CTS) and Non-Exchange Student Activities. Please note that before running the MBKM program on other campuses, participants must ensure that their home campus and related campuses have collaborated for the implementation of the program and that the students participating in the program have been declared to meet the requirements.

In the question and answer session, the enthusiasm of Undiknas students was seen in discussing the MBKM program and its implementation at Undip. It is hoped that this company visit can be useful as well as become a provision for students in carrying out the MBKM program. (Titis – Public Relations)
