The Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences Students Carry Out Internship in Japan

On the 22nd and 23rd of February 2024, 8 (eight) students of the Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences (FPIK) at Diponegoro University traveled to Japan for their internship program at several companies in Japan for two semesters. Not only was it a bold step, but it was also a valuable opportunity for students’ personal growth in the international workforce. Additionally, this departure indicates that the Merdeka Belajar Kampus Merdeka (MBKM) internship program that FPIK Undip has implemented for a few years remains.

Eight students who flew to Japan for the internship are Capture Fisheries Technology (THP) and Marine Science study program students. Their internship at a Japanese company focused on shellfish aquaculture and seafood processing. The FPIK Undip students can learn straight from the leading industrial practices as interns at several Japanese companies.

A few months prior to departure, the students had taken an intensive Japanese course offered by Kokorono Siji Job Training Institute, which prepared them for employment in Japan.

The departure of these eight students is the beginning of the departure of several other FPIK students who passed the internship selection in Japan. Through this program, students can implement their knowledge and gain priceless experience in the fishery and marine industry.

The Dean of the Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences (FPIK) Undip, Prof. Ir. Tri Agustin Winarni, M.Sc., Ph.D., was proud and appreciated all students who passed the internship program in Japan.

“We hope that the MBKM internship program in Japan will continue and go well so that the students can return to Indonesia and remarkably contribute to the progression of the nation’s fisheries and marine sciences sectors,” Prof Tri Agustin said.
