Angga Khoirul Imam

Industrial Engineering, Texas Tech University

While in America, Angga felt some differences in the implementation of the education system that was implemented between America and Indonesia. Both in terms of human resources and the system that is run. Angga feels that American society is more open and confident in expressing opinions or ideas in public, without any fear of being wrong or judged for that opinion. In contrast to Indonesians who are still afraid of being wrong or unsure of what is believed, they often refrain from expressing their thoughts in public.

Besides that, the lecturers there also took the time for students to do one to one guidance, where students who were left behind in the classroom could catch up with doing private tutoring with the lecturers. No less important, Education in America does not only prioritize the GPA, but also they form and develop soft skills.

Angga sees himself in the next ten years as a Manager of Consultants or Managers in a manufacturing company, where Angga can implement his knowledge in the field of Industrial engineering that he is now learning to help companies grow bigger.
