Service learning is new for engineering students in PCU. When heat transfer class was adopting service learning methode last year, a small survey was done to know the students’ respond for this new methode. The survey was done via reflection they wrote in the end of the process. The students learn not only heat transfer itself, but they also learn how to apply it to an oven needed by a community in Kebontunggul, a small village in Mojokerto. The students in three groups visited the village, discussed with the villagers, and designed the oven used to dry crackers’ paste made from corn, cassava, and rice flour. Once the design was ready, the students went to workshop to manufacture the ovens. The oven was tested before sent to the village. They learned that it was difficult to make those cheap crackers. They learned a lot from the villagers in social interpersonal, social intrapersonal, emotional, and cognitive process. They are thankful to God for their being and grateful for this Service Learning class. A student even wrote, “I had changed motivation from just pursuing grade to seriously helping villagers”.
Key words: Heat transfer class / Kebontunggul Village / Simple drying technology
