Student Association of Vocational School’s diploma program in Mechanical Engineering UGM held "free tune up" service for two-wheeled vehicles for two days, 5-6 October, at Education and Training Centre workshop “Suzuki-Gadjah Mada” of Department of Mechanical Engineering. The free tune up service is intended for two-wheeled vehicles of all kinds of brands.
"This service is only held for two days for the public. We target at about 200 consumers who will have their bikes fixed here," said committee chairman, Ardyan Prahardika, to the reporters on Tuesday (5/10).
In this special service for minor tune ups, the replacement of spare parts and oil are offered cheaper. "We also provide services to replace the brake and spare parts," he explained.
According to Ardyan, the tune up service of the two-wheeled vehicle was held regularly every year by the mechanical engineering diploma program, as one form of community service programs. Special for this year, the free tune up workshop is involving about 60 student technicians. "Most of them are students in their fifth semester majoring in automotive," he said.
In addition to providing experience for students to handle motor vehicles problems, this event also prepares them for an internship at automotive companies.
