17th DINAMIK also held a national seminar on Friday, November 18, 2022. This seminar carried the theme “Building Up Career in Industry 5.0” and invited Muhammad Rahmanda, alumni of the 2014 Computer Science Education Department who is now the President Director/CEO at PT Layanan Cerdas Indonesia as a speaker. There are two seminar sessions, the first session is the presentation by the speaker and the second session is a question and answer session between the speaker and the participants. In the seminar, Rahmanda said to carry out all the activities when we were a student with all our heart and with the best effort without having to think about the results. Because, no matter how good the result is, if it is not accompanied by knowledge, then it is the same as not having qualified skills.
