ITS Campus, ITS News – The prestige of Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) Surabaya in the international arena is getting better and beginning to attract outside parties to establish cooperation. This time, it was shown by the visit of representatives from Northeastern University, Boston, United States at ITS Rectorate on Wednesday (09/12).

The visit, initiated by Associate Teaching Professor Dr. Julius Marpaung and Jeffey Hegel from Northeastern University, aims to explore the possibility of cooperation for internships for ITS academics. The internship’s cooperation by Northearstern University itself focused in the field of industry.

Seeing that ITS is also an institute that is well known in the field of technology, Julius finds it suitable to explore this collaboration with ITS. This is also supported by Northeastern University’s focus in technology as well. “The potential and growth of cooperation with ITS are very promising, and hopefully, in the future it can be established well,” Julius said after meeting with leaders of ITS.

Julius, who happened to be an Indonesian, also hoped that at the next meeting both parties would sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) as concrete evidence of the initiation of this cooperation.

Meanwhile, ITS Chancellor Prof. Ir Joni Hermana, M.Sc.ES Ph.D., said that this collaboration was the beginning of ITS opening the gate again to cooperate with universities in America, after few years of vacuum. This is because, currently, students are more prioritized to increase their capacity in the field of industrial revolution 4.0.

The professor of Environmental Engineering is very enthusiastic in accepting the invitation for internship cooperation in this industry. In addition, since 1892, Northeastern University has designed its educational process by asking its students to be able to do internships before graduation.

According to Joni, students who graduate should not only need a diploma or certificate, but also an internship experience. “This internship is proof that the student is capable enough to work outside,” said the chancellor who is also an expert in climate change science.

By reopening the opportunity for ITS to work with universities from America, Joni hopes to further support the industrial revolution 4.0 in the future. (li/ITS Public Relations Officer)
