Students of the Faculty of Engineering, Universitas Brawijaya (FTUB) are again winning an international competition. This time three teams won three Gold Medals at the 2021 Youth International Science Fair (YISF) which was held on April 10-12, 2021.

Tim Legi TechnoThe first team was fronted by Ihza Aulia Rahman (ElectricalEng’18). Together with his team members; Abdul Mudjib Sulaiman W (MechanicalEng’18), Rizki Chandra Maulana (ElectricalEng’18), Anima Rahmatika P (ChemicalEng’18), and Charis Maulana (MechanicalEng’19) he presented a work called Rotation.

Rotation is an innovation that utilizes reverse osmosis and thermoelectricity to convert industrial waste heat into electricity and clean water.

The second team was the team chaired by Yudika Putra Perdana Pangaribuan (ElectricalEng’19). Yudika and the team made the Agricultural Expansion application or abbreviated, Agri-X.

Tim AGRI-XAGRI-X is hopped to be a millennial generation innovation application in improving the welfare and capacity of farmers in supporting food self-sufficiency in Indonesia.

In making this application, Yudika collaborated with Cecilia Fauziah and Anton Meilus Putra (Faculty of Agriculture), Rhobithotus Mufidah (Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences), and Rifqi Aqil Asyrof (Faculty of Economics and Business).

The third team was the team chaired by Adrian Adam Indrabayu (ElectricalEng’19). Together with the team, he created an artificial photosynthetic system called Fetallic.

Tim FetallicFetallic which was made with his four team members; Yudika Putra PP (ElectricalEng’19), Kenny Aldebaran Roberts (ElectricalEng’19), Adita Aulia A Rachman (ElectricalEng’19), and Erina Azahra Amalia (ChemicalEng’19) was able to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. even able to convert it into electrical energy.

The three teams are the guidance team of one of the FTUB Electrical Engineering lecturers, Ir. Nurussa’adah M.T.

“Alhamdulillah, the three of them can take part in the international arena. Hopefully we can continue to work, provide enthusiasm and motivation for other students,” hoped the Secretary of the Electrical Engineering Department who is usually called Bu. Rosa.

YISF 2021 itself is one of a series of activities held by the Indonesian Young Scientist Association (IYSA) in collaboration with BUCA IMSEF, Turkey, Malaysia Innovation Invention Creativity Association (MIICA), The Union of Arab Academics, the Actuarial Department of the Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology, and Science Hunter Indonesia.

This competition brings together extraordinary ideas from various countries. This is surely provides a valuable experience for the participants.

“This is not the first time we have participated in an international competition, but we still felt the competition atmosphere. Seeing those great ideas make the team more eager to move forward. Hopefully in the future the Legi Techno team can be developed into a startup,” Ihza, Team Leader of the Legi Techno hoped. (mic)
