(29/8) In order to increase the quality of Human Resources (HR) at Faculty of Engineering, Diponegoro University held a training “Occupational Safety and Health” (OHS) for staff (lecturers and employees). This event takes place for 3 days starting from Monday-Wednesday, August 22 – 24 2022 at the FT UNDIP Dean Building, carried out using a hybrid method (offline/online).
On the first day, started with the opening of online training by dr. Agus Prasetyo as a speaker to deliver a material on human anatomy and physiology. This OSH training is special because it is added with Covid-19 prevention materials.
On the second and third day, offline practice will explain general health problems and emergency response. Each participant gets a chance to practice the lesson that has been obtained so far. There are also teaching aids and medical equipment used to maximize this training so that participants are able to understand the material well.
Having research skills is very important in education to always create innovation. Therefore, on 25/08/2022, the Faculty of Engineering held a Visiting Professor, which was held in the Theater Room, Dean Building of the Faculty of Engineering, as well as a zoom meeting for online participants. Several leaders and lecturers of the Faculty of Engineering were seen attending this Visiting Professor, who discussed how to conduct and write research.
Benny Tjahjono, as Professor of Sustainability and Supply Chain Management, Coventry University, provided material related to the world of research and the importance of research in this modern era. At this visiting professor event, he explained the research model that must be carried out:
Determining the problem and focusing on research
Selecting the appropriate literature for the study material
Professor Benny not only explained the important things that must be done in conducting research but also provided information related to the benefits that can be obtained, such as adding publication materials, citations and indexes. “One Stone to Hit Two Birds,” he said, gives an overview of the world of research. In other words, research’s importance brings one benefit and many benefits.
This event received great enthusiasm from the participants, especially the lecturers of the Faculty of Engineering. In the discussion session, many lecturers asked questions about the material that had been presented. With this Visiting Professor, it is hoped that the enthusiasm of the academic community in conducting research will be even greater so that they can realize the goals of the Faculty of Engineering, namely “Grow to be the Best Research Faculty of Diponegoro University”.

The existence of massive technological developments in the modern era has now led to several using fossil energy in various fields such as household, transportation, electricity, and others. However, fossil energy consumption has contributed significantly to carbon emissions so that it has a negative impact on the environment, for example climate change and global warming which causes the temperature on earth to rise every year. Therefore, renewable energy innovations are needed to reduce carbon emissions and towards net zero emission.
It requires understanding and support from every element of society, including Higher Educational Institution that focuses on the environment and energy. Faculty of Engineering collaborated with PT. Indonesia Power held a seminar with the theme “Renewable Energy Development as Energy Transition Towards Net Zero Emission”.
Located at Engineering Hall, 5th Floor, Dean Building, it was attended by Dr. Budi P Samadikun, S.T., M.Sc. the Chairman of Committee, Dean of Undip Engineering Faculty Prof. Ir. M. Agung Wibowo, M.M., M.Sc., Ph.D., President Director of PT. Indonesia Power Dr. Ir. M. Ahsin Sidqi, M.M., IPU, Lecturer of Master of Energy in Electrical Engineering, Dr. Ir. Jaka Windarta, M.T., IPU, ASEAN Eng. Professor of Environmental Science Doctoral Program Prof. Sudharto P. Hadi, MES., Ph.D and the entire academic community of Diponegoro University.
The first presentation was given by Dr. Ir. M. Ahsin Sidqi, M.M., IPU regarding Indonesia’s development in preparing itself to welcome the clean energy market on a national and international scale.
