Luckily, he was a student who dared to have new experiences. “Learning by doing” is a concept he always applies whenever he drills. Faisal’s learning perseverance led him to an internship opportunity at an intergovernmental coordinating center in South-East Asia. There, he merges his knowledge of geodesy and geomatics with data science. How come? Here is his story! Becoming a Tech Talent was Never in Faisal’s Plan Before Faisal was a Geodesy and Geomatics Student at Institut Teknologi Bandung. Geoscience and things related to natural disasters were subjects that Faisal studied on campus. Therefore, becoming a tech talent has never been in Faisal’s plan. However, the
