ITS Campus, ITS News – Even at the age of 19 years and 10 months, Naufal Shafiy Putra Angkasa has won an engineering degree. Effort and prayer are his pledge keys to being the youngest graduate at Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember. The youngest graduate from the Department of Marine Engineering will graduate on Saturday (24/9).

Finishing college at a young age is a special privilege for this man who is familiarly called Shafiy. The choice of undergraduate studies in Naval Architecture and Shipbuilding ITS is a manifestation of his interest in ship construction. In addition, he has a mission to contribute to Indonesia’s maritime sector, which is still lagging behind other countries.

According to this alumnus of SMAN 2 Sidoarjo, Indonesia’s seas are still heavily polluted by unprocessable plastic waste, thus destroying the marine ecosystem. This is why Shafiy chose the topic of his Final Project entitled Technical and Economical Analysis of Recycled Plastic Splicing Methods. In his research, Shafiy used a gluing system and plastic webbing for the skin of the ship’s hull.

During his studies, Shafiy admitted that he never had difficulty getting along and communicating with his classmates. Even though he is quite far apart in age, he can adapt and communicate well. “The high solidarity of Marine Engineering friends has been honed during regeneration, age is not a limitation, it is even like family,” explained the man from Sidoarjo.

Being the youngest graduate, Shafiy often encounters small pebbles along the way to getting a bachelor’s degree. Due to his young age and his status as a student, he often feels emotional instability. This is normal because he is still a teenager. He is grateful to have supportive family and friends who can help him overcome small obstacles during college.

When he was a student, Shafiy did not just swallow the knowledge given by the lecturer. After the lecture, he reread the material given as a new insight into the future. Not only that, this man who is interested in the construction sector is also involved in the Baito Deling research project. Here he learned the process of making boats with bamboo laminate. “Usually, boats are made of aluminum and wood, but I was interested in joining Baito Deling because they made boats from bamboo,” he said.

According to him, students should not only focus on the academic field but also on non-academic experiences. Therefore, this young graduate is also active in the Marine Engineering Student Association (HIMATEKPAL), where he became a staff of the human resource development division (PSDM) and the following year became the head of the PSDM division.

Shafiy also felt the need to equip himself in the world of marketing. In his third year, he became a digital marketer for Baito Deling and studied project management. The knowledge he gained while at Baito Deling made him grateful because it could be useful for his career path later.

He has the principle that learning knows no time and age. For his juniors, Shafiy also advised, there is no stop to finding the time. “Be a human being who is useful to those around us so that it has a positive impact on us as well,” he concluded. (ITS PR)
