For the winners, this is an encouragement for everyone. As for those who have not won, it does not mean their work is not good, but we are looking for the best.
Dean of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences UNY, Prof. Dr. Ariswan, M.Si., in his speech, said this competition is a series of activities for the 59th Anniversary of UNY. This competition is the first anniversary after UNY became PTNBH. This competition makes the interaction between UNY and the community more pronounced. This competition needs to be preserved to benefit the community.
