ITS Campus, ITS News – Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) continues to expand its network of partners with foreign universities to support its mission as World Class University. This time was indicated by the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with National Dong Hwa University (NDHU), Taiwan at the ITS Rectorate Building, Monday (20/5).

According to the ITS Chancellor, Prof. Dr. Ir Mochamad Ashari MEng, the signing of this MoU was the starting point of cooperation between the two parties in terms of research and education. Previously, ITS had also collaborated with various universities in the world. “Especially with Taiwan, ITS has sent and accepted students to this country, and NDHU has become the umpteenth Taiwanese university that has a relationship with ITS,” he said.

The man who is familiarly called Ashari explained that the MoU initiated by the ITS Faculty of Civil, Environmental and Geo-Engineering (FTSLK) will bridge ITS’s collaboration with NDHU in the academic and research fields. He also explained that for the initial stage, cooperation in the academic field would be directed to student exchange and international classes.

A little mention of the international class, the chancellor from the Faculty of Electrical Technology (FTE) ITS said, this program allows ITS students to study abroad after the fourth semester. The consequences of the program that will be started by ITS in the 2019/2020 school year are the departments that open international classes must have many foreign partners. “This is one of the objectives of this MoU,” said the professor of Electrical Engineering.

While related to research collaboration, Ashari explained that the meeting with NDHU discussed a lot about environmental and disaster research. This is because the MoU was initiated by FTSLK ITS. In addition, the NDHU sent many representatives from both fields.

However, according to this bespectacled man, many related fields were able to take part in the research later. “For example, from Electrical Engineering can help research related to sensor technology and data retrieval as needed,” he pointed out.

In line with Ashari, Dean of FTSLK ITS IDAA Warmadewanti ST MT PhD stated that every year ITS will send four students to undergo student exchanges with NDHU. As an initiator, she explained that not only the departments of FTSLK were targeted in this MoU, but also other departments in ITS, considering this MoU was carried out at the institutional level. Also opening an international class, she also expressed hope that the FTSLK can also collaborate with NDHU in this matter later. (fat/herdiana/ITS PR)
