On Friday, June 14 2024, the Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences, Universitas Brawijaya (FFMS UB) received a visit from representatives of “JANJI Inc.” to discuss internship programs in Japan, especially in the field of oyster cultivation in Sakoshi Bay, Hyogo Prefecture, Osaka, Japan. This event opened with remarks from Prof. Dr. Ir. Maftuch, M.Si., Dean of FFMS UB, who welcomed Eny Novianty and Taichiro Kaburagi from “JANJI Inc.”, and expressed his appreciation for the visit. He hopes that this visit will bring great benefits to FFMS UB and “JANJI Inc.”, especially for students.

Vice Dean for Student Affairs, Alumni and Student Entrepreneurship, FFMS UB, Dr. Eng Abu Sambah, S.Pi., MT., added that he welcomed the opportunity for collaboration through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between “JANJI Inc.” and FFMS UB. Dr. Abu Bakar Sambah also hopes that Ms. Eny Novianty can provide comprehensive information regarding work and study opportunities in Japan to students.

In her presentation, Eny Novianty explained about the Field Work Practice (PKL) program in Japan which focuses on oyster cultivation. This program is aimed at active FFMS UB students, with the aim that they can study cultivation in a country with four seasons, as well as build networks between companies and students, which has the potential to facilitate employment in Japan after graduation. Selected students will receive Japanese language and culture training, as well as facilities in the form of plane tickets, dormitories, insurance and residence permits.

Apart from increasing knowledge about cultivation, this program is also expected to help students understand work culture, discipline and other socio-cultural aspects, which will develop students’ soft skills and make them competent workers after graduating. This event is expected to attract strong student interest and interest in field activities.

This visit not only marked the beginning of collaboration between Japanese fishing companies and FFMS UB, but was also an effort to broaden educational horizons and professional experience for FFMS UB students. [ALF/YFS]
