ITS Campus, ITS News – In the era of industrial revolution 4.0, it is very natural for various educational institutions to cooperate in providing benefits for the nation. Likewise, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) via online with Dian Nuswantoro University (Udinus), Thursday (15/7).

Udinus Rector, Prof. Dr. Ir Edi Noersasongko MKom, explained that ITS and Udinus collaboration started in 2007. The cooperation is in the form of credit transfer, further studies, and joint research. This time, the signing of MoU is also an extension of the previously carried out collaboration in 2016. “Both universities will carry out this cooperation until 2025,” he added.

Continuing his explanation, Edi acknowledged that the collaboration had a significant impact on developing the quality of education at Udinus. According to him, many lecturers who teach at the campus continue their doctoral education at ITS. In addition, a lot of research is also carried out together with this hero campus. “There are 11 ITS doctoral alumni lecturers, six people are studying at ITS, and there are seven who are queuing to enter ITS,” he explained.

Responding to this, ITS Rector Prof. Dr. Ir Mochamad Ashari MEng said that nowadays is no longer the time to compete. Especially during the Covid-19 pandemic, the education sector needs 3S (synergy, speed, and smart). Today’s schedule is one of the efforts to support these three keys.

“With this collaboration, we can increase synergies between campuses, can reach common goals quickly, and can collaborate to find smart solutions for various existing problems.”

The Rector called Ashari also mentioned that there are many similarities between ITS and Udinus. Udinus’s spirit in the field of technology and student creativity is in line with the goals of ITS. “Basically, these two things support the development of the two campuses,” he said.

Ashari also expressed his admiration for the campus which was founded in 1990. For him, in such a short time, Udinus could skyrocket to his current position. This can be seen from student achievement, accreditation to the number of students. “I think Udinus is one of the phenomenal universities,” he said.
