Vocational School of Universitas Gadjah Mada sent three students to the meeting between polytechnic students entitled Asian Kosen Experience Program 2012. It is held in Toyama, Japan, from 10-15 September.
Chair of Mechanical Engineering Diploma Program in the Vocational School, Dr. Wikan Sakarinto, said that the three students were selected to represent Indonesia after passing a series of tests, competing with other participants. The three are M. Shalahudin, David Sitompul, and Moeh Imam. "They will show off their skills in a number of events and polytechnic contests, particularly, mechanical and electrical engineering,” he explained on Monday (10/9).
The three students will compete together with other students representing various Asian countries, including China, India, Malaysia, Srilanka, and Thailand.
Wikan said the event would also be made a forum to expand international networking, for example opening student internship in Japan and other Asian countries.
