THP, SEMARANG – The Fisheries Product Technology (THP) Study Program of the Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences (FPIK) Diponegoro University (UNDIP) is committed to producing a profile of COMPLETE qualified graduates with Level 6 KKNI (Indonesian National Qualification Framework) and SKPI (Certificate of Companion Certificate) that are trusted.

Head of the THP FPIK UNDIP Study Program, Prof. Dr. Ir. Eko Nurcahya Dewi, M.Sc, stated that the commitment to produce graduates with a COMPLETE profile applies to all study programs at the Diponegoro Campus. For the THP Study Program, in addition to being recognized as Level 6 KKNI, SKPI is also given to graduates. “SKPI or Diploma Supplement is an official statement letter containing information about the academic achievements or qualifications of a graduate higher education degree issued by the tertiary institution. SKPI is not a certificate, but it can help the holder to get recognition or recognition, “said Eko Nurcahya Dewi, Thursday (6/5/2021).

She emphasized that the SKPI is an additional document, not a substitute for a diploma. As for the information contained in it, in addition to academic achievements, there is also a description of the learning outcomes of graduates at the KKNI level that are relevant and in a standard format that is easily understood by the general public. “Indeed, SKPI is not a document that automatically holds the holder of recognition, but it will help identify the profile of graduates and their qualifications,” She added.
