The world has now entered the fourth industrial revolution with emphasis on digital economy, artificial intelligence, big data, robotic, and other information system that experiences disruption. These technology advancements have made human activities to get more practical, faster, and easier. But technology disruption also poses challenges to university graduates due to the numerous jobs that were lost and replaced by machines.
“This issue becomes a challenge for us because currently jobs that are occupied by workers, bankers, and lecturers, may soon be transforming into something else,” said Rector of UGM, Prof. Ir. Panut Mulyono, M.Eng., D.Eng., to 1,648 graduates of UGM in Grha Sabha Pramana on Wednesday (21/2).
