GEMASTIK or the National Student Exhibition in the Field of Information and Communication Technology, is a program of the National Achievement Center, Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology. This program is aimed at increasing the competence of Indonesian students, so that they are able to take on the role of agents of change in advancing ICT and its use, both while still in their studies and later after graduating. This year, GEMASTIK is being held for the 15th time with the theme “ICT for Indonesia to Recover Faster, Rise Stronger”. The implementation of GEMASTIK XV will be carried out using the offline method for division I to division III from the initial round to the end of the activity, as well as the online method for division IV to division XI. This performance was held with one of the universities appointed by the National Achievement Center, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology as the organizer. GEMASTIK XV held 11 branches/divisions of competitions in the field of ICT (Information and Communication Technology), both with competition formats and work competitions. The following are the 11 branches/divisions of the GEMASTIK XV competition, namely:
1. Division I Programming
2. Division II Cyber Security
3. Division III Data Mining
4. Division IV User Experience (UX) Design
5. Division V Animation
6. Division VI Smart City
7. Division VII Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Scientific Paper

Their struggle to become Gemastik XV 2022 finalists is not easy. It takes seriousness and continuous effort in reaching the point that is achieved. The Expecto Patronum team has gone through basic Competitive Programming training held at the Computer Science Study Program and has tried to take part in various Competitive Programming competitions. Likewise with the Healthiest Team, which has participated in quite a lot of activities in the field of User Experience (UX). Each achievement point is the start for the next achievement.
Even though they haven’t managed to bring home a medal when they appeared and competed in the Finals, of course this achievement is something that really needs to be appreciated. Hopefully this achievement will further motivate students of the Computer Science Study Program and Computer Science Education to continue to work and achieve achievements.
