Working in agriculture engineering, make a lot of interaction with farmers will make your life so much colorful
On contrary, when we do practice in field and have a lot working with farmers, that was such an excitement for me. The best thing when we have profession in agricultural engineering is we can contribute to advancing agriculture and help the farmers through technology.
After a long journey in agricultural engineering field, finally I got Professor title when I was 48. This achievement can’t be told an easy thing. Because I am a woman and should be able to manage my time well. Time for my family, kids, and my education also.
In 2015 I got an honorary from AFEO (ASEAN Federation of Engineering Organization). It was meant a lot for me. I didn’t imagine that I would be a winner and defeated thousands other participate. But this means I am equal with other young engineer. And I feel appreciated by this honorary.
I did research about graduate gender profile in Indonesia and I found that engineering is not preferred by most women. Women prefer to education and health field. But I ensure you to all women in Indonesia, that actually engineering is not only for men. And I hope to all my students and graduates of agricultural engineering could make contribution in agriculture field, and consistent to our competencies.
