BANDUNG CITY- In addition to integrity, morality or good character and a strong mentality is needed to achieve success as a superior human being in West Java, including to face lectures on campus for students.
"Because one's success is not only seen from intelligence, but morals and morals are the principal," said Deputy Governor of West Java (West Java) Uu Ruzhanul Ulum when opening the University of Muhammadiyah Bandung (PESONAMU) New Student Orientation and Orientation Week for Academic Year 2019/2020 , on the campus of Muhammadiyah University, Bandung City, Thursday (19/9/19).
In today's digital era, Uu also asks young people to have the discipline and qualified expertise plus digital skills so they can adapt and compete with the times and global competition.
Uu also encouraged the campus as the organizer of education to guide and direct students to study business, both business that is in line with study programs and across study programs.
So, later when the students graduate, they have enough knowledge and skills to face the world of work. In addition, Uu hopes that the young scholars can be born as technopreneur (entrepreneurs who optimize technology) in the Industrial Revolution 4.0.
"All students are expected not only to study to study, but students can apply all the knowledge they have gained by aligning their intentions to become moral and progressive individuals," Uu said.
Chancellor of the University of Muhammadiyah (UM) in Bandung, Suyatno, meanwhile said that the great ideals of UM Bandung were to give birth to young and educated young technopreneurs as an anticipation of the lack of scholars absorbed in the business and industrial world.
"What we mean by Technopreneur is a university graduate who besides having academic ability, but also has a mental attitude and entrepreneurial skills or entrepreneurship," Suyatno said.
In addition, through the educational institution he leads, Suyatno wants graduates to have the ability to take advantage of technological advances. That way, UM Bandung graduates have a great opportunity to build a better life for themselves and the surrounding environment.
At present, there are approximately 788 new students who take part in PESONAMU activities at the UM Bandung Campus. Suyatno advised, this new student must be able to maintain the good name of the alma mater during the educational process.
"Younger siblings have the responsibility of maintaining the good name of the alma mater," he concluded.
