Desta Suci Fitriani (Geophysics 2017), Jenny Azzahra (Chemical Engineering 2018), and Valdo Lohanda Setiawan (Environmental Engineering 2017) who joined the UI student team won third place (2nd Runner Up of Smart Competition) in the International Competition at the International Level, at 11th -13th March 2020 at Padjadjaran University, Sumedang, West Java.
This International Smart Competition is one of the series of BOREYES: International Energy Fair held by the Society of Petroleum Engineers of Padjadjaran University Student Chapter (SPE UNPAD SC).
In the quiz competition entitled “Future Energy Development: Advancing Technology and Resources”, the three were required to defeat the opposing team by answering the jury’s questions quickly and accurately.
The questions raised by the judges are closely related to the oil and gas industry, including exploration activities, petroleum production, earth science (geology & geophysics), and issues related to the oil and gas industry.
One of the team members, Desta explained that to join this competition, he and his team-mates made preparations for 2.5 months before the match. Initial preparation, said Desta, took 1.5 months to compile the material to be contested, so that 1 month remained for the preparation of the preparation.
To the FMIPA UI public relations team, the 1999-born student who joined the SPE UI SC membership conveyed her impressions in the international quiz event.
She said “through this competition, we students are motivated to be even more enthusiastic about deepening their insights on the technical and non-technical aspects of the oil and gas industry”.
This is also in line with the objective of this activity, which is to encourage students to compete with one another to broaden their horizons about the oil and gas industry, and to encourage students to compete in a healthy manner in creating ideas and innovations in the oil and gas field.
