STRATEGY OF SOLAR PLANT KNOWLEDGE AND SKILL DEVELOPMENT FOR STUDENTS IN THE INDONESIAN NAVAL TECHNOLOGY COLLEGE
Solar power plants have been widely developed in the Indonesian Navy. However, the development of existing solar power plants is still not accompanied by the ability of skill and knowledge of the Navy personnel, as well as limited maintenance funding. Indonesian Naval Technology college has an important role in resolving these issues. The main problem in this research is the lack of competent human resources in the field of solar power plants owned by Diploma Students in Mechanical engineering and Electrical engineering at Indonesian Naval Technology College. This research aims to analyze the development and utilization of Solar power plants in the Navy and the required competencies, the development of Solar power plant skills and knowledge, and the fulfilment of the Navy's technical workforce needs. The research method used is quasi-qualitative, where the development strategy is obtained using SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats), while the development strategy roadmap uses ISM (Interpretative Structural Modeling). Based on the SWOT analysis, the development of Solar Power Plant skills and knowledge at Indonesian Naval Technology College can be done through the implementation of evaluations to add Solar Power Plant courses to the curriculum, improving the competence of lecturers, updating instructional and teaching aids, increasing student enrollment, establishing a fulfilment research program. The fulfilment of Solar Power Plant technical personnel can be started by The Indonesian Naval Technology college by applying the roadmap for the strategy for fulfilling Solar Power Plant technical personnel starting from 2023 to 2025. As a suggestion for the Navy, to increase students in Indonesian Naval Technology college and open a program of New and Renewable Energy, followed by improving the curriculum.
