Students of Jenderal Soedirman University / Unsoed again achieved proud achievements at the international level. This time the medal was presented at the World Invention Competition and Exhibition (WICE) 2021. Fabian Roshan (Agricultural Technology 2017) and Team Members Muhammad Farid Rahmatullah (T. Elektro 2018), Muhammad Sigit Pamungkas (Physics 2018), and Rezkya Aliffa Widiyanantoputri (Physics 2019) successfully presented the Gold Medal and Macedonia Special Award. In this event, the team from Unsoed raised the title "Aerodynamic Wind Micro Turbine As A Sustainable Energy Source".

WICE is an international level innovation event held by the Indonesia Young Scientist Association (IYSA) in collaboration with SEGi College Subang Jaya (SEGi University and College Malaysia). This activity was held online on 24 - 30 September 2021 and was attended by 369 teams from 29 countries.Team Leader Fabian Roshan said the innovation presented was a microturbine that utilizes the concept of vehicle aerodynamic drag as an alternative source of electrical energy for motor vehicles such as motorcycles and cars. According to the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, the New and Renewable Energy (EBT) target in 2025 reaches 23% and the potential of vehicle wind energy is also quite high seeing the average vehicle speed of more than 40 km / hour. "In addition, because the potential of aerodynamic wind energy is 70% of the speed of the vehicle, it is possible for this energy to be one of the sources of electrical energy," he explained.

The series of activities began with the registration process and prototype preparation starting from April 1, 2021; participants received an invitation from the organizers of the World Invention Comptetition and Exhibition (WICE) after the registration process on August 13. "We are preparing posters and abstracts/articles until September 5, 2021. The results of this process were contested at the peak event on September 24 to September 30, 2021 online by 2 international judges," he explained.
