Breaking the Egg: Udayana University Postgraduate Environmental Science Doctoral Program sends students for a Double Degree Program to Chiba University
Realizing the implementation of a double degree program between Udayana University and Chiba University, Japan, one student of the Udayana University Postgraduate Environmental Science Doctoral Study Program who has passed the test selection for this program has arrived at Chiba University, Japan, on April 17, 2023. The student is I Made Oka Guna Antara, who has been accepted as a doctoral student (S3) at the Department of Environmental Remote Sensing, Graduate School of Science and Engineering, Chiba University, Japan, starting April 1, 2023, under the Double Degree Program (DDP) between Chiba University and Udayana University. Contacted through online media, Oka said he was very enthusiastic to take this DDP program from one of the best remote sensing research centers in the world, the Center for Remote Sensing, Chiba University (CU), Japan. He also added that he was very happy to get the opportunity to take part in the Double Degree Program from the Environmental Science Doctoral Program (PDIL), Postgraduate, Udayana University (UNUD), with the Department of Environmental Remote Sensing, Division of Earth and Environmental Science, Graduate School of Science and Engineering, Chiba University, especially getting the opportunity to learn and be mentored directly by Prof. Josaphat Tetuko Sri Sumantyo through the laboratory he chairs (Josaphat Microwave Remote Sensing Laboratory, JMRSL).
Meanwhile, Prof. Josh, the nickname of Prof. Josaphat Tetuko Sri Sumantyo, said that Oka received an "Excellent Student Scholarship" from Chiba University for one year to support his research and studies while living in Japan. He will conduct research in the doctoral program with the title "Marine Debris Identification using UAV/Satellite Images and Deep Learning" under my guidance, he added. DDP is a program to strengthen research and education cooperation between Chiba University and Udayana University as a sister university. Hopefully, more and more master's and doctoral students from both universities will participate in DDP (DK).
