Diponegoro University (Undip) officially deployed 10 Student Creativity Program (PKM) Contingent Teams to take part in the 35th National Student Science Week (PIMNAS) in 2022 at the University of Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM) on Tuesday (29/11) at the SA-MWA Building, Undip Tembalang Campus.
This activity was also attended by Vice Rector I for Academic and Student Affairs, Head of the Academic and Student Affairs Bureau, Deputy Director of the Academic Directorate of Student and Alumni Affairs, Supervisors and Assistant Lecturers, and students participating in the 35th PIMNAS.
Vice Rector I for Academic and Student Affairs, Prof. Faisal, S.E., M.Si., Ph.D. in his remarks expressed his gratitude and gave high appreciation to the 10 Undip PKM Contingent Teams. “Undip is very grateful to the students and lecturers who are members of the Undip PKM Contingent Teams who have struggled to expend energy and spend their time preparing the Undip PKM Contingent to take part in the 35th PIMNAS.” he said.
According to Prof. Faisal, the participation of the 10 Undip PKM Contingent Teams in the 35th PIMNAS will bring Undip a good name. “A big university is not just a name, but one of the indicators is our participation in this PKM and PIMNAS activity.” he explained.
Furthermore, Prof. Faisal hoped that the Undip PKM Contingent Teams could optimize all the preparations and exercises that had been carried out a few days ago. “Our efforts have been maximized, now we have to leave it to God Almighty.” said Prof. Faisal.
“Please don’t be too burdened that you have to bring the championship because we have appreciated the achievement by participating in a national scale event. Apart from that, the process is also appreciated because that process describes how PKM is fostered at Undip. Insyaallah, in 2023 all Faculties are required to participate in PKM. We will make it mandatory and we will make it a performance indicator. Since some Faculties are centers for research. We have mapped out how the journey of PKM and PIMNAS in Undip will be.” he concluded.
