“I am very grateful for KEMAKOM’s achievement as the best Association at FPMIPA because this is proof that KEMAKOM pays attention to the abilities and talents of its students in organizing and in competitions between students. Many competitions were won during 2022 both at local, national, and international levels. Hopefully, this can be used as encouragement for other students. I hope that KEMAKOM can maintain this achievement even better than this year.” – said Dr. Wahyudin, M.T., Chair of the Computer Science Education Study Program.
“Really appreciate the enthusiasm of students who have participated in competitions and even won championships. Hopefully, this enthusiasm can be passed on to many other students. The experience of participating in competitions or contests is beneficial for testing your sincerity and fighting spirit, and honing strategies in preparation. In addition, participating in competitions can foster a spirit of sportsmanship, that winning or losing is normal, there are factors beyond our control so our job is to try our best. Congratulations to Kemakom” – said Dr. Rani Megasari, M.T. as Chair of the Computer Science Study Program.
