Today Bali is in an era of globalization. Understanding the era of globalization is everything using sophistication or high technology so as not to be out of date. So that human work is done not by human hands itself, meaning humans do something through the help of machines, or more sophisticated tools. So that requires us to have higher education and competent competitiveness in order to increase competitiveness at every opportunity. Universities and Industry can interact with each other in exchanging information and cooperation in various fields, one of which is in the field of renewable energy.

In an effort to face increasingly fast global competition, the Faculty of Engineering, Udayana University is required to be able to move actively and innovatively in order to increase the competitiveness of graduates, both at national and international levels.
