UNS — Another amazing accomplishment was made by a student of Universitas Sebelas Maret (UNS) Surakarta. This time, the accomplishment was made by Dji Hanafit, a student from the Mechanical Engineering Education Study Program, Faculty of Teacher Training and Education (FKIP); Rakel Junetty, a student of the Mathematics Study Program, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (FMIPA) UNS; Ramandha Ayu Damayathy, a student of the Chemistry Study Program, Faculty of Engineering (FT) UNS; Rezza Mahardika Putra Prasetyo, a student of the Mechanical Engineering Education Study Program, FKIP UNS; and Zalfaa Azalia Pursita, a student of the Special Education Study Program, FKIP UNS. With the CNC Mobile Application, the five UNS students successfully won a silver medal and a special award in the World Science Environment Engineering Competition organized by the School of Environmental Sciences, University of Indonesia, and the Indonesian Young Scientist Association (IYSA).
When interviewed by uns.ac.id on Tuesday (2/8/2022), Dji Hanafit revealed that the CNC Mobile Application is a learning application for Computer Numerical Control (CNC) subject, developed for Vocational High School (SMK) students majoring in mechanical engineering, which he designed with his team under the guidance of Taufik Wisnu Saputra, S.Pd., M.Pd. “This application focuses on increasing students’ interest in CNC programming codes. The application also comes with modules that have been developed by the team. Furthermore, this application has been tested in several vocational schools in Solo. The results show that this application can help increase students’ learning interest in CNC subjects,” he explained.
Dji Hanafit also expressed his happiness and gratitude for winning a silver medal and obtaining a special award. “The happiness, started from the preparation stage and the decision to compete with this CNC application, come from the fact that we can learn to develop a product that can help someone acquire knowledge, especially vocational school students majoring in mechanical engineering,” he concluded.
After successfully winning a silver medal and obtaining a special award, Dji Hanafit hopes that this CNC Mobile Application can be further developed to be better. Hence, the application can be used by vocational school students from other regions and to support CNC learning. Humas UNS
