At the 2022 Bangkit Program, students at Universitas Dian Nuswantoro (Udinus) Semarang successfully made various apps, that help resolve problems surrounding the general public. Two of those apps were ‘Fishku’ and ‘Tanamin,’ which were made by two teams consisting of six people each. Those apps were successfully nominated as the top 15 best apps, which would be further developed in the capstone design.

The first app, ‘Fishku,’ was an Android-based app serving as a marketplace for freshwater fish. Anugrah Tri Ramadhan, one of the developer team members of machine learning explained that the app acted as a way to digitalize fishery transactions in Indonesia. The marketplace would later be directly used by fishermen to market their products to consumers, including restaurants, hotels, and the general public.

Ramadhan, known as Rama, added that the app was also equipped with other features, namely, to check the freshness of a fish. By employing the deep learning principle, the app was trained to recognize the patterns of fresh fish. The app will detect how fresh a fish is by looking at its eye condition.

Every feature equipped in the app can fully be accessed using smartphones without paying a single dime. Our survey shows that the fishermen gave positive feedback . Hopefully, this app can eventually benefit the whole fishery community in Indonesia,” Rama, an Informatics student at Udinus, uttered.

The development process of ‘Fishku’ also involved five other students led by Muthia Farah Hanifa (a student at UIN Jakarta), accompanied by Adisti Anjani Putri (a student at Undayana), Nabila Aprillia, Ni’matul Husna, and Rhamdan Syahrul Mubarak (all from UGM). For further information, the ‘Fishku’ app can also be accessed through their website at

Meanwhile, Nanang Febrianto, the Leader of the ‘Tanamin’ Developer Team, explained that his app was a direct response to the abundant problems faced by the agricultural sector. Furthermore, he also explained that roughly ten to twenty percent of Indonesian farmers had experienced crop failures caused by diseases infected by the crops. With the ‘Tanamin’ app, farmers will be able to monitor the health condition of their crops by utilizing camera detection.

“Through this Android-based app, users can just open the app and take a picture of the desired crops. Additionally, we also equipped a feature allowing farmers to be informed concerning the recommended medicine for these crops within this app,” he revealed.

The development of this app also involved five other students, including Brilyan Fandhi Safsalta and Achmad Naila Muna Ramadhani (from Udinus), Shazi Awaluding and Rama Tri Agung (from UPN Yogyakarta), as well as Abraham Pardomuan Naiborhu (from the President University).

The 2022 Bangkit program was initiated by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology as a way to develop students’ insight into the field of technology. According to the data provided by the Ministry of Education, the program had graduated 2517 students from 226 different campuses in Indonesia.

In response to that, an instructing lecturer of the Bangkit Program, Galuh Wilujeng Saraswati, M.CS., expressed her pride in the accomplishments attained by her students. In addition, she stated that in 2022, Udinus sent 144 students to participate in the Bangkit Program. The program was mainly participated by students from the Information Systems and Informatics Departments. Through the Bangkit Program, students will be mentored by various industrial partners, including Gojek, Tokopedia, and Traveloka.

“This program aligns perfectly with our learning outputs within the Computer Science Faculty at Udinus, namely developing apps for everyday use. Moreover, Udinus is also the only private university in Central Java to be the partner of the Bangkit program,” Galuh explained.

With this program, students have received roughly 900-hour training, which hone their skills in accordance with the demands for workers in the technological industry. Furthermore, they have also learned various soft skills, as well as English skills. (Humas Udinus/Haris. Foto: Dok. Rama) soft skills hingga kemampuan Bahasa Inggris. (Humas Udinus/Haris. Foto: Dok.
