Mechanical Engineering Student Association Work Program: Guest Lecture


Science and technology are growing so rapidly in a very short time. This development of science and technology should be followed by the industrial area which subsequently requires experienced human resources.

Current technologies are so many and diverse, engineering students are expected to have extensive insight or knowledge about technological developments. They are also expected to be able to apply the science or even create new technologies.

Engineering and industry are inseparable from our society. Therefore students should be introduced to the hustle and bustle of the industrial world as early as possible, so that when the time comes to take on this world students will no longer feel awkward about working in the engineering field and will not miss the growing technological trends in the society.

One way to gain more knowledge about the world of industry and technology is by having a Guest Lecture, also known as a public lecture, given by speakers with extensive experiences. The guest lecture is expected to be a means to gain more profound knowledge in accordance with the scientific professions studied.

The main theme of the activity is “INTEGRATED ENGINEERING IN MODERN AND RURAL COMMUNITY”, divided into two topics: “Structure Design of Micro Hydro Power Plant” presented by Harsa Dhani, ST, MT (Master of Engineering) from Widya Karya Catholic University, and “Industrial Revolution 4.0 – Digitalization” presented by Ir. Purnomo Budi Santoso, M.Sc, Ph.D from Brawijaya University.
