BANDUNG - A total of 540 graduates and graduates of Winaya Mukti University (UNWIM) officially held bachelor and master degrees, at Bale Asri Pusdai Bandung, Thursday (12/20/18). Regional Secretary (Secretary) of West Java Province Iwa Karniwa who was present on behalf of the Governor advised that graduates can contribute to the 4.0 industrial revolution.
The contribution, said Iwa, is to be an agent of change where graduates are no longer job seekers, but become employers. Thus, unemployment in West Java can be suppressed. This is considering that based on data from the Central Java Central Bureau of Statistics (BPS), the unemployment rate in West Java reaches 1.86 million people.
"It is time for graduates to become employers rather than job seekers, so they can reduce unemployment in West Java," Iwa said in his speech.
In addition, the Regional Secretary Iwa also said that digitalization of industry and e-commerce became a new era that must be faced by UNWIM graduates, especially in the era of industrial revolution 4.0. According to him, there are three basic components that must be considered in the 4.0 industrial revolution, namely industry based on the use of the Internet of Things (IoT), Internet of People (IoP) and Internet of Everything (IoE), industries that utilize cyber-physical system (cps) integrating cyber computing processes with physical processes carried out by humans, and smart factories that are able to integrate IoE and cps. Secretary Iwa stressed that graduates must have high optimism to answer these challenges and changes.
"The paradox that is becoming a scourge now is the loss of old jobs will be covered by the creation of new jobs. Therefore, high optimism certainly must be answered with the right preparation and strategy, "said Iwa.
"I hope that the graduates must be able to answer the challenges in the digital era and the increasingly competitive world of work, because the life of nation and state who are born-born champions requires the presence of a smart, broad-minded, creative, courageous and adaptive millennial generation. science and technology, "he continued.
