UNAIR NEWS – Born as twins is a God’s gift. Having identical appearances, M. Dedy Bastomi or known as Dedy and M. Deny Basri or known as Deny also have similar uniqueness. They both study at Diploma 3 (three year program) of Information System Automation, are now participating in 29th Student National Science Week in Institut Pertanian Bogor (IPB).
Interviewed in the venue, Dedy said that his trick to be able to participate in final round was willingness to learn from experience. Qualified in last year’s PIMNAS in Kendari, Dedy learned many things from his experience with his twin brother and friends in PIMNAS.
“The key to success, learning from last year’s experience. Observing the titles interesting to judges and knowing friends potentials for collaboration,” he said.
Deny, his brother had his own story related to their PIMNAS journey this time. From 12 PKM proposals they submitted, 3 of them were through. It was a unique experience for Deny.
“It broadens experience and gave the best one before graduation,” he said proudly.
Even though they have participated twice in PIMNAS, they still had their challenges as they are in their last semester.
“When we were going to have PIMNAS preparation camp in, Deny hasn’t done with his final exam. So, after the camp, he worked around the clock for the exam,” recalled Dedy.
Furthermore, both often have disputes during formulation of ideas for PKM proposals. Even so, they always reach an understanding in the end.
“We often have disputes, if we don’t understand each other it could be a row. We must understand each other,” said Deny.
These twin brothers who are also Bidikmisi awardees, were determined to finish their study after PIMNAS. They also had planned to transfer to bachelor program.
“Alhamdulillah we had finished our exam, we have judicium next,” said Dedy.
During this PIMNAS, they participated in PKM T category titled “Sistem Segmentasi Citra Sebagai Pengukuran Tendensi dan Stability Volume Busa padaFoaming Test Pelumas di Laboratorium PT.Pertamina Lubricants Gresik Berbasis Borland Delphi 7 (Image Segmentation System as Foam Tendency Measurement and Stability Volume in Lubricant Foaming Test in PT. Pertamina Lubricants Laboratory Gresik Based on Borland Delphi 7).” Deny, Dedy and their PKM team succeeded in getting a silver medal for presentation category and a silver medal for a bronze medal.
