Internship Debriefing for 3rd Grade THP Students

July 2, 2022

THP Study Program specially invited two experts from the food/agriculture industries, they were Moh. Izmaul Haqqi from Perusahaan Daerah Perkebunan Kahyangan and Fazni Fembrianis from PT Indofood Sukses Makmur, Tbk. They were invited to this event to underline the closest topics between theoretical principles obtained from lectures with future professional experience. This event was opened by Ir. Giyarto, M.Sc. as Vice-Dean for student affairs of the Agricultural Technology Faculty.

This debriefing provided some topics, which were food industries and their developments, ethics during the internship, and writing techniques for the internship report. During the debrief session, students were allowed to actively participate by exploring questions to get more knowledge priorities from experts and allowed interactive discussion with each other. At the end of the event, students were required to pass the post-test. Therefore, students were led step-by-step by the experts to really understand the materials, so later on, students can also adjust the skills gained during the internship to their academic pursuits.

Sugar Factory, Semboro - Jember

Sugar Factory, Pradjekan - Bondowoso

Sugar Factory, Wringin Anom - Situbondo

Industrial Visit to The Sugar Factory PT Perkebunan Nusantara XI

June 30, 2022

An Industrial visit to the sugar factories was arranged on June 23rd, 2022 for the third-year THP students. The students gained knowledge about sugar processing technology in the different factories. PTPN XI produces sugar through its subsidiaries located in Jember, Bondowoso, and Situbondo. This industrial visit gave them an opportunity to witness the whole sugar processing procedure from the initial stage where the sugarcane from the field was sequentially processed, up to the last stage where the sugar was packaged and distributed. Students keenly observed the packaging and storing sectors where proper storage requirements must be strictly followed.

Sugar factory Semboro targeted 8 million tonnes of sugar that can be produced for this year 2022 by collaborating with sugarcane farmers around the covered area. The General Manager of the factory also stated that available raw material was fairly enough to achieve the target, while the advanced machinery was used in an automated manner to ensure that every production stage was fulfilled. The qualified workers did their jobs accurately in implementing product safety confirmation at every stage. The factory views not just safe but also environmentally friendly production for social protection in the context of reducing environmental damages. The other two sugar factories have also used the most updated technology and built comprehensive safety considerations which then enhanced their reliability in safety for products and the environment.

Focus Group Discussion For Preparing Teaching-Learning Material at THP UNEJ

May 6, 2022

Teaching-Learning Material (TLM) is any tool and equipment that lecturers may use to carry out the learning process, thereby allowing their students to gain proper learning activities tailored to desired learning objectives. TLM functions as a guide for lecturers to make learning situations in the classroom, laboratory, or outside the classroom become more interesting and controllable. TLM is an essential foundation, therefore, it is very important to be well arranged so that can benefit students in their learning achievements. Therefore, THP UNEJ carried out FGD for preparing TLM.

The FGD on the preparation of TLM was held on saturday and sunday, 4-5 May 2022. THP UNEJ invited Dr. Iis Nur Asyiah, SP., MP, and Dr. Dian Kurniati, M.Pd. as the facilitators to share their experiences and guide our teaching staff to meet the task. The FGD was opened by the Dean of the Faculty of Agricultural Technology, Dr. Ir. Bambang Marhaenanto, M.Eng.

To meet the goal of this FGD, all our teaching staff are required to complete TLM such as the semester learning plan, syllabus, assessment rubric, and the course section information document for each course.

Focus Group Discussion For Preparing Outcome-based Curriculum at THP UNEJ

April 11, 2022

Experts involved in two webinar series discussing microscopic analysis and biomass use in food

November 30, 2021

This webinar series educates you on key paths that ease not only how the procedure of microscopic analysis works but also the inspiring ways which are essentially applied for food today. Also, this webinar bridges you to face the challenge of the use of biomass for food applications.

The first webinar on Food Microscopic Analysis (FMA) was hosted by the Department of Agricultural Product Technology. Two experts from the Prefectural University of Hiroshima (PUH) and the University of Padjadjaran (UNPAD) were invited to speak for the first webinar. Associate Professor Tomoyuki Yoshino from PUH discussed the importance of scanning probe microscopy and atomic force microscopy in food science. Whereas, Bambang Nurhadi, Ph.D. from UNPAD discussed the use of microscopic analysis in food powder, and how it is a solution to face the challenges today concerning food ingredients in the form of powder. Expert from host university (Dr. Niken Widya Palupi) discussed the technique to characterize food nanomaterial. In simple terms, FMA is applicable to all food types regardless of particle size range.

Department of Agricultural Product Technology also hosted the second webinar on biomass, covering the technology used and its application. Professor Jung from Kyungpook National University discussed biomass platform technologies for biorefineries. “One of the solutions to monitor minced pork freshness is through the use of cellulose nanofiber-based pH indicator,” Prof. Jung said. “This is not the only solution, but it is a great start for meat industry solutions to the problems in the markets.” M. Khoiron F., M.P. is a researcher from Jeonbuk National University. He is passionate about biomass application for food hydrocolloids. “This is the optimum condition that I believe will enhance cellulose content using 10% NaOH, NaMCA weight of 4.57 g, and reaction temperature of 46.59°C,” Khoiron said. The expert from the host university, Dr. Triana Lindriati, discussed the three potential sources of antioxidants that can be incorporated with biopolymers. “Tea, rosella, and curcumin extracts showed antioxidative properties, and they can be incorporated with pectin and other water-soluble carbohydrates,” she said. This webinar works to strengthen department capacities toward the development of FMA and sustainable agriculture through undergraduate education and research. Department facilitated such research and supported students and researchers who are interested.

HACCP Training for THP Students

December 15, 2020

The era of free market globalization has pushed the movement of trade products, especially in the food sector. The world is now facing various global challenges, such as food security, technological advances, social responsibility, and social safety. Multiple regulations for the food sector emerged and are developed as a means of controlling trade. Every country around the world has the authority to protect its people, especially with regard to the security and safety of its people, as well as the Republic of Indonesia.

HACCP for THP students is needed as it plays an important to improve the competency according to GLOs offered. In choosing their role for the future such as food producers, food traders, food inspectors, etc., students will fiercely compete with graduates from the other universities. Therefore, HACCP training was given annually by the THP study program to ensure that the graduates are capable of working properly.

THP study program invited Mutu Institute as a credible HACCP trainer institution to provide the best training material and method. This program was attended by 120 THP students and lasted for two days per batch.

Workshop for framing out the essential learning outcome assessment adjusted to IFT-version

December 10, 2019

THP UNEJ is one of the study programs that is still trying to get international accreditation. The intended accreditation is accreditation from the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT). Currently, there are only two similar study programs in Indonesia that hold IFT accreditation, namely Agricultural Product Technology of Universitas Brawijaya and Food Technology of IPB University. Acquiring this accreditation is expected to be able to align itself with the same study program around the world. In this workshop, we invited Dr. Eko Hari Purnomo STP. M.Sc. and Dr. Ir. Feri Kusnandar, M.Sc. from IPB University shared experiences, tips, and tricks to obtain IFT accreditation.
