ITS Campus ITS News – To have a strong multiplier effect on Indonesia, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) continues to work toward the growth of student-owned businesses. This time, ITS successfully recruited 249 graduate students for the Bangkit program, a career offering from Grow with Google in partnership with the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology (Kemendikbudristek) which was held in a hybrid manner, Tuesday (6/9).

The program, sponsored by the Merdeka Learning Campus Merdeka (MBKM), once again recorded an important moment in the journey of the learning movement, where more than 3,000 students from hundreds of universities in Indonesia became independent students. This program has provided 900 hours of lessons for students to take part in industry-based training in technology, coupled with soft skills.

At the ceremony for the release of Bangkit 2022 students, Minister of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology (Mendikbudristek) Nadiem Anwar Makarim revealed that this program is crucial for the survival of the student society. Seeing the development of the internet, which plays a very important role in work in the era of society 4.0 and digitalization, will also be a new opportunity for students.

Furthermore, the challenges faced certainly require supporting digitization in work and information technology (IT) to obtain educational opportunities for students affiliated with the digital industry. Beyond that, IT will also create new jobs and provide opportunities to gain academic insight. “The Bangkit (Program), in this case, opens an interesting and challenging alternative to follow,” said Nadiem in his presentation.

Nadiem expressed his happiness that Bangkit 2022 has attracted 63,000 students from 32 provinces in Indonesia in the three years of implementation. Then, through ability selection and administrative files, as many as 3,100 of the best students were accepted as participants. The majority or 67 percent of Bangkit’s participants this year came from small and medium-sized cities.

Seeing the achievements of Bangkit and ITS, ITS Vice Chancellor I for Academic and Student Affairs Prof. Dr. Ir Adi Soeprijanto MT assessed the enthusiasm of students and support from campuses throughout Indonesia as reflected in the number of registrants this year. This support makes Bangkit a program that teaches hard skills and soft skills that are memorable and useful for future life.

Adi revealed that ITS’s achievement as the largest producer of graduates in this activity proves that enthusiasm is the main element. Although it has been said that this is the result of joint work, especially institutional support. “However, the main element is the spirit of our extraordinary students. Congratulations,” he said proudly.

Bangkit’s success in producing digitally talented students is thanks to the support of Bangkit’s main partners, namely GoTo, Traveloka, and the Directorate General of Diktiristek Kemendikbudristek. Do not forget to appreciate the support of founding partners, university partners, and all public and private contributors. That way, the ITS Electrical Engineering Professor hopes Bangkit can also be used as the gold standard for Merdeka Campus programs.

Additionally, ITS believes that all Awakening Program graduates would use their knowledge of innovation and problem-solving techniques as much as they can to advance the nation and humanity. “In accordance with the ITS tagline, which is Advancing Humanity, and the ITS 62nd Anniversary tagline, which is Innovation for Indonesia,” he said.
