ITS Campus, ITS News – From time to time, the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) is increasingly gaining global recognition. It is proven by ITS involvement in Tuning Asia Southeast (TA-SE) Project. ITS Civil Engineering Department formulates a civil engineering curriculum with Erasmus and the Asia University Network (AUN).

Tri Joko Wahyu Adi ST MT Ph.D. as the Head of the ITS Civil Engineering Department explained that the project which has been going on for three years aims to formulate a joint curriculum between universities in the European Union and Southeast Asia. In discussing civil engineering, the ITS Civil Engineering Department became the only representative from Indonesia along with representatives from other Southeast Asian countries.

The man who is familiarly called Tri said, basically each country has its policies related to the curriculum implemented in the country. From this different curriculum, he revealed that there are competency points that can be raised together. “In terms of civil engineering, for example, there is a general skill in which every civil engineering engineer is obliged to have these basic competencies,” he said.

In addition to the general abilities, he also mentioned that there are specific competencies in each country’s curriculum which is different. These particular abilities, said by Tri, was formulated by the university and its countries according to the needs of the industrial climate. This is the subject of formulation in the TA-SE Project.

The concentration of the project is how to implement a curriculum that has been formulated. For the first stage, he explained that the student exchanges and the joint degree were proposed as part of the implementation. Besides, it needs to be further developed related to assessment methods to find out the success of the project undertaken.

Related to ITS Civil Engineering, the project will enlarge the opportunities of ITS Civil Engineering Department students to gain an internationalization experience. According to him, the similarity of the curriculum with universities in Southeast Asia and the European Union made the process of student exchanges and joint degrees easier. “Not only for ITS students who want to go abroad but also for foreign students who want to study at ITS,” he explained.

Lastly, he hopes that ITS students will be able to implement the project properly. He motivated ITS students to not to stay on campus and in our country. Tri emphasizes that ITS students can establish connections with the global community. “Now it is easy to go abroad, especially our curriculum is already compatible with them,” he concluded.
