Through works that raise tourism issues in West Java.
Fajar and Zulfikar created a work “Regional Potential Dashboard for Tourism Sector Development in West Java Province” by using the Tableau platform which raises the topic of tourism in West Java.

“This competition is very memorable for us, because this is the first time we have participated in a competition and did not expect to be in 3rd place, especially since competitions in the data field of this size that rarely held. Our hope by participating in this competition, the work we make can benefit for many people and the wins we get can motivate fellow students so they have the courage to work and compete in the field they are in.” Said Fajar and Zulfikar.
“In addition, the Study Program really supported us when participating in this competition, even though we only informed (the Study Program) when we had been declared champions. But the Study Program really supports us both morally and materially. Even at the peak of the event, Mr. Lala came to the event to support us.” They continued.
