According to him, the achievements achieved this time prove that UB is still productive even though it is currently in the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The COVID-19 pandemic does not reduce and kill the productivity of UB students in innovating. Some time ago UB also received an award from the Ministry of Education and Culture as the university with the most patents. It proves that during a pandemic we can still be productive. Besides that, UB also won the title as a university with the Informative category this year, “said the former Dean of FP.
In line with the Rector, Vice Rector III for Student Affairs Prof. Dr. Ir. Abdul Hakim, M.Sc., added that in terms of number and rank, this year UB has increased compared to last year
“This year UB for the first time online was able to pass 42 proposals compared to last year which only 16 proposals. In terms of faculties involved this year there were 10 faculties, while last year there were only four faculties. This is an extraordinary struggle from the supervisor who is facilitated by the rector and faculty, “said Prof. Hakim.
Nuhfil and Hakim hope that in the future UB can improve its achievement to become the General champion for PIMNAS. (OD / Humas UB/ Trans. Iir)
