ITS Campus, ITS News – Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS)’s landmark, Synchro, is ready to add new colors and dynamics to the hero campus. The fruit of the collaboration between the institute and the ITS Alumni Association for East Java Regional Management (IKA ITS PW Jatim) was inaugurated to coincide with ITS 60th Anniversary, Tuesday (10/11). This gear-shaped monument can be found at the ITS Triangle Park area.
ITS Vice Rector IV for Research, Innovation, Cooperation, and Alumni, Bambang Pramujati ST MScEng PhD, explained that ITS Synchro was born from the desire of ITS civitas academica to have a brand new landmark. Not without reason, the presence of the new landmark is believed to beautify the campus area. “In addition, the existence of this landmark can also become a new icon for this Campus of Heroes,” stated this Vice Rector who is familiarly called Bambang.
Furthermore, ITS Rector, Prof. Dr. Ir Mochamad Ashari MEng, mentioned that the name Synchro is derived from the word “synchronous” which means being synchronous, dynamic, and synergistic. Meanwhile, the gear model was chosen because it symbolizes ITS that consists of various elements and takes pride in diversity. “When working together, the gears of different sizes still rotate simultaneously,” commented this ITS professor who is familiarly called Ashari.
Meanwhile, the Chairperson of the ITS Alumni Association for East Java Regional Management, Dr. Wahid Wahyudi, revealed that ITS Synchro has five main functions. First, this icon is a pinpoint for visitors entering the campus area in Sukolilo. This monument also functions as a local environmental aesthetic. In addition to that, Synchro plays a role as an enhancer of ITS image as a humanist technology campus with many art and culture-style installations.
Wahid, as he is familiarly called, added that another benefit of this monument is as a place perfect for taking selfies. According to him, Synchro has its own charm for the community since it is fresh and brand new. “In fact, this new ITS monument can be used as a pinpoint area for gatherings, which can support the development of educational tourism in the campus area,” explained this ITS alumnus.
During the inauguration of the Synchro, Ashari thanked the ITS Alumni Association for East Java Regional Management. He expressed that the collaboration to build this monument is proof that alumni are still bound physically and spiritually with their alma mater. In the future, the Rector said that ITS is very interested to add into the collection of landmarks. “We will continue to improve and grow so that ITS can become the leading Smart Eco Campus area,” concluded this alumnus of the Electrical Engineering Department enthusiastically.
