IPITS virtual zoom meeting on cluster XX

ITS Campus, ITS News – Ahead of the odd semester lecture at ITS, there is much to know about the new students of the class of 2020 for the smooth running of their lectures in ITS. Therefore, ITS held an activity titled Information and Introduction its (IPITS) held online for two days, starting Thursday (17/9).

IPITS is a routine activity organized by ITS for new students every year. This event was held with the aim of providing information about the academic, facilities, activities, and policies applicable in ITS.

In addition to technical things, IPITS also does not forget to give fighting spirit by giving advice to increase the motivation of new students in studying. “ITS students must be competent, thanks to the industrial revolution 4.0 there will be six million jobs lost but there will be 24 million new jobs emerging. Make sure you can all adapt to the 24 million,” said Dr Umi Laili Yuhana SKom MSc, Director of Technology Development and Information Systems (DPTSI) ITS who fills the IPITS material in one of the clusters.

IPITS also explained one of the policies recently issued by the Minister of Education and Culture (Mendikbud) namely Merdeka Belajar-Kampus Merdeka (MB-KM). That is a response to the change in the college paradigm. “If it used to be, the purpose of the college was to get a job, now the goal is to create jobs. It used to focus only on education, now the focus is on academics, research, innovation, vocational and profession,” explained Prof Dr Ketut Buda Artana ST MSc as the filler of MB-KM materials in the same cluster.

He added, according to the Guidebook of MB-KM Directorate General of Higher Education (Directorate General of Directorate General) of the Ministry of Education and Culture 2020 there are eight activities that students can do outside their program. The activities in question are student exchange, internship, a teaching assistant in education unit, research, humanitarian project, entrepreneurship, study or independent project, and thematic KKN.

“These activities will be converted into sks required by students. This policy is made on the principle of not bothering students at all,” he added.

In addition, IPITS on this first day also emphasizes to new students to have ethics during their college life. Some of the ethics in academics include honesty and respect for science and the arts. Also in nonacademic activities such as social norms.

ITS also provides a sense of security to students by providing direction if the student sees or experiences a violation of the rules set by ITS. In addition, security in carrying out academic activities such as practicum through campus safety and safety culture materials.

On the second day tomorrow, IPITS will discuss the internationalization activities available in ITS, as well as about student organizations and extracurriculars. In addition, students will also be provided with information on technology development facilities, environmental awareness, and preparedness for disasters, as well as preparedness for New Normal adaptations.
