Minister of Research, Technology, and Higher Education Prof. Mohamad Nasir, Ph.D., Ak delivering his speech during the 71st Graduation Ceremony of UNTAR
The Minister of Research, Technology, and Higher Education Prof. Mohamad Nasir, Ph.D., Ak stated that today’s development is causing many professions to be taken over by technology. We come across many professions which are unrecognized before, which took quite significant roles in the present.
He also cited several large companies with trillions of assets which manage to be successful with the help of technology. Many of these companies are also established and run by young people.
“This development should change the way we view things, especially for the young generation. Universitas Tarumanagara as a university with the values of integrity, professionalism, and entrepreneurship have to be encouraged so that the graduates will be able to create new job opportunities in Indonesia”, he expressed in front of the Universitas Tarumanagara graduates during his oration in the 71st Tarumanagara University graduation, Saturday (19/5) in the Jakarta Convention Center.
Prof. Mohamad Nasir requested other universities to emulate Universitas Tarumanagara’s success in producing graduates with the ability to create jobs instead of looking for available jobs. He hoped that Universitas Tarumanagara graduates as the future generation of Indonesia will be participating either as entrepreneurs or in other fields to contribute in the development of Indonesia.
Meanwhile, the Regional Private Coordinator for Colleges III Dr. Ir. Illah Sailah., MS, requested the graduates to maintain their integrity, apply Pancasila behavior, and be capable to implement their competence.
The 71st graduation ceremony was attended by the Director General of Learning and Student Affairs from The Ministry of Research, Technology, and Higher Education Prof. Intan Ahmad, Ph.D, along with the Governing Board and the Executive Board of Tarumanagara Foundation, 1,353 graduates from the Bachelor, Master, and PhD programs along with the professionals from eight faculties and the postgraduate program.
