After a collaborative program of closed house cages on the first floor with Diponegoro University Faculty of Animal Husbandry and Agriculture (FPP Undip) in 2017, Medion is now reopening the second floor. This ongoing collaboration is one of the concrete manifestations of Medion’s commitment to improving the quality of education in the country.
Coinciding with Heroes’ Day on Thursday, November 10th, 2022, the inauguration was held at the Agro Techno Park, Faculty of Animal Husbandry and Agriculture, Diponegoro University, Semarang. About 70 people participated in this activity consisting of the rectorate and Faculty of Animal and Agricultural Sciences Undip, Representatives of the Military Regional Command IV / Diponegoro, Representatives of the Regional Office of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights of Central Java, Representatives of Open Society Institutions Class IIB Kendal and Batang, Representatives of Bank Indonesia, Representatives of Bank BTN at the Provincial to regional levels, Representatives of PT Cemerlang Unggas Lestari, Representatives of CV Berkah Putra Chicken, Representative of Dharmawanita Persatuan Undip, and representative of Medion.
In his remarks, Undip Rector, Prof. Dr. Yos Johan Utama, S.H., M.Hum stated that the presence of this closed house is a real practice for students in seeing the condition of the livestock industry in the field. “By setting up closed house cages on campus, students are exposed to the real-world conditions of livestock industry practices in the field, allowing them to know what is taught on campus and apply it to real-life situations. he said. Dean of Faculty of Animal Husbandry and Agriculture, Undip , Prof. Dr. Irish Bambang Waluyo Hadi Eko Prasetyo, M.S., M.Agr., IPU added that the construction of closed house cages has the main purpose as a learning medium to understand the livestock industry. “The main goal is for learning so that students can practice in real time. This means that students can come into direct contact with the industrial world before students enter the field later,” he said.
Another thing was conveyed by Peter Yan as Commissioner of Medion. The collaboration between Medion and Undip through the construction and provision of closed house cage facilities aims to be able to provide practice / training to students so that they are more ready to use and it is hoped that students can be more optimal in understanding the direct practice of the world of animal husbandry so this ensure that students are competent and well-versed in the latest technologies after completing their studies.
In addition to cooperation on closed house cages, Medion also provided a scholarship program for Undip students since 2017. Puspa Seruni Permatasari thanked Medion as the representative of the scholarship recipients thanked Medion for the scholarship that had been given. It is hoped that Medion will continue to provide great benefits and of course as a student will contribute to the livestock industry.
This collaboration is a tangible proof of Medion’s commitment to education to realize its mission, which is to provide innovative and comprehensive solutions through research, technology, professional teams, and good governance so that it can provide added value to all stakeholders.
