IPB University Wins General Satria Data 2020

IPB University won the General Champion in statistical competition named Satria Data, a competition event in the field of statistics organized by the Department of Statistics, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (FMIPA) IPB University. This competition has been held since 15 years ago under the name Statistika Ria.

In contrast to previous years, this year the statistical competition was elevated to the national level in collaboration between IPB University and the National Achievement Center (Puspresnas) of the Ministry of Education and Culture (Kemendikbud). There are at least three main activities implemented, namely webinars, competitions and Credit Earning Activities. Satria Data was followed by no less than 900 participants from all over Indonesia.

Rector of IPB University, Prof. Dr Arif Satria said, "Satria Data is an event to test the creativity of students in the field of data. IPB University has changed the name of the Statistical Study Program to statistical and data science study program. This step is done so that we are able to adapt to change. The science of data is a challenge how to utilize big data, then process it because the current data has reached billions so it needs a special or reliable data processing," he said.

In this satria data event, IPB University students achieved victories including first and second place in the national statistics competition and third place in statistics essay competition (SEC) and National Statistics Competition. Not only that, IPB University delegates also won the Best Creativity (Statistics Essay Competition), Best Presentation (Statistics Infographic Competition), The Most Impressive Presentation (Big Data Challenge) and Master of Analysis (National Statistical Competition).

Congratulations to the winners hopefully this activity will be a provision in the future," said Prof Arif in the Awarding of Winners of Satria Data 2020, Saturday 17 October 2020.  (IAAS/NAS)
