Lecturer Ludhang said the two teams from UGM went through to the semifinals and the UGM 1 team ranked fourth in the final. The first place is Navamindradhiraj University, Thailand, followed by Chiangmai University, Thailand.
“Our students also won gold and silver medals in the individual category,” he said on Thursday (4/4) at UGM campus.
The UGM student winners are Maria Fransiska Pudjohartono (gold nobel) and Bernadeta Fuad Paramita Rahayu who earned silver nobel.

Ludhang expressed his pride on the achievements because this was the first time the UGM team participated in an emergency competition, which challenged the students in emergency skills.
