The KLAUS team also felt great support from the study program in quickly finding a mentor who was in line with the topic being presented. The team leader, Axel expressed his impressions while participating in the Healthkathon 2022 competition, “We really feel challenged when saw other teams who are greater than us. Hopefully, in the next competition, we can get the first winner, and we hope that the application we made can bring a good impact on society. In this competition, we really hope this application can actually be implemented so that it can be useful for society, especially BPJS participants. For students, please be active at any competition and don’t worry about winning or losing, the important thing is the experience and you can be implementing what you have learned in college to be a creation.”
Congratulations to the KLAUS Team for bringing the name of Computer Science and the Indonesian University of Education to the national level. Hopefully this achievement will motivate and be the start for students of the Computer Science Education Department in providing achievements in their respective fields.
