This meeting is intended to explore collaboration in the distribution of employee for the needs of software development companies/factories in Japan. This is a new scheme of PT. Meisou Indonesia, where if the participant is declared to have passed the selection, they will be facilitated with Japanese language training before leaving to Japan. This is also a good thing for graduates of the UPI Department of Computer Science Education who want to go international to Japan to gain experience. In this meeting, representatives from PT. Meisou Indonesia conveyed regarding the need for human resources for the software development needs of companies/factories in Japan through PT. Indonesian Meisou.

PT. Meisou Indonesia previously had a collaboration with the UPI Mechanical Engineering Study Program and was about to dispatch graduates. The new scheme offered to graduates of the Computer Science Study Program and Computer Science Education can be done remotely. Graduates prepare CVs, diplomas and transcripts, to then follow the initial selection which is carried out internally so that only a few are recommended by study programs. Graduates who are recommended study programs will be further selected by Japanese companies in need. For the period of August 2022, 3 graduates are needed. There are 2 patterns of collaboration that will be carried out, the first is to provide recommendations for graduates to work full time remotely and the second is to collaborate in the form of projects to be carried out internally by the Department of Computer Science Education by empowering lecturer and student resources as well as campus facilities that are adapted to the MBKM (Independent Learning) scheme. Hopefully this exploration of collaboration will be able to provide benefits to PT. Meisou Indonesia and members of the Department of Computer Science Education.
