UNAIR NEWS – The 36th National Student Scientific Week (PIMNAS) officially ended on Thursday, November 30, 2023. The UNAIR contingent won third place in the competition that was hosted by Universitas Padjajaran Bandung.
UNAIR students collected four gold medals, one bronze, one most favorite in the presentation category, and one silver in the poster category. Prof. Dr. M. Hadi Subhan SH MH CN, the Director of Student Affairs, is extremely grateful for this achievement. He acknowledges that this success was attained by nearly half of the participating team.
“Out of the nine competing teams, half of them got medals, and four were gold,” he said.
The Faculty of Law professor stated that despite having fewer participants, UNAIR’s position proves the exceptional quality of the contingent. Several top campuses sent a significantly larger number of teams than UNAIR.
“Several campuses sent numerous teams, yet their gold medal achievements were only slightly apart from UNAIR’s. Once again, this proves the outstanding quality of our teams,” he said.
Ready to host
Prof. Hadi emphasized that the achievements encourage UNAIR to do better. Next year, UNAIR will host the student’s biggest, annual event.
“It motivates us to do better. In 2024, we will host the PIMNAS. From the third place, hopefully, we will be the grand champion,” he said.
In the 36th PIMNAS, three UNAIR students were selected as talented students. The assessment was made according to their characters during the competition.
“Our students also achieved remarkable accomplishments in PIMNAS. Three students were selected as talented students,” Prof. Hadi said.
The professor believed that it was time for UNAIR to be the grand champion. After more than 20 years of not hosting the PIMNAS, 2024 will be UNAIR’s moment to achieve the grand champion.
“PIMNAS is a scientific competition, it’s a part of the academic community. Let’s continue honing our skills and logic, this is a part of who we are,” he said.
Here are the details of UNAIR’s achievements at the 36th PIMNAS at Universitas Padjadjaran in Bandung.
