ITS Campus, ITS News – Producing competitive graduates and meeting the needs of the industrial 4.0 world of work is the desire of the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh November (ITS) as one of the prestigious technology campuses in Indonesia. According to the Strategic Plan (Rienstra), this time ITS officially unifies the postgraduate level cross-disciplinary education program through the launch of the Interdisciplinary School of Management and Technology (SIMT) and the addition of a new Study Program (Prodi), Master of Innovation and Technology (MIST), Saturday (16 /10).
SIMT, the first school outside the faculty owned by ITS, was previously introduced in a soft launch by ITS Chancellor Prof. Dr. Ir Mochammad Ashari MEng on the last day of the 2021 ITS Leadership School and Work Meeting last February.
In his inauguration this time, the ITS Chancellor, who is usually called Ashari explained, so far at ITS, there have been various postgraduate level interdisciplinary programs, but they are still scattered in multiple ITS organizations. According to Ashari, this program’s educational model will bridge multiple disciplines to meet the real needs of the industry.
Looking back at the time of the soft launch, continued Ashari, each field of work is not only one discipline needed. Every decision to be made requires financial, human, and technical aspects that must be considered. After going through various processes, the SIMT program has finally been officially launched. “From various programs or fields of new specialization, lecturers from various departments and industries at ITS can collaborate,” explained the ITS Professor of Electrical Engineering.
On the same occasion, the Dean of SIMT ITS Prof. Ir I Nyoman Pujawan MEng Ph.D. CSCP admitted that he was very ready to realize the dream of managing interdisciplinary education across scientific families under one roof to anticipate future needs. He further explained that the SIMT program would bridge various disciplines to meet the real needs of the industry.
This Professor of Supply Chain Engineering further said that SIMT would be carried out on institutional cooperation between SIMT, faculties, and departments at ITS, both at the strategic level in designing the curriculum or at the tactical level in determining lecturers and thesis supervisors.
Nyoman also revealed that the inauguration of this SIMT is a form of ITS seriousness in managing the organization, realizing the importance of resource sharing within ITS, and taking opportunities for interdisciplinary education needs.
The ITS Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Education Program officially consists of the Technology Management Study Program, divided into two levels, namely the Master of Technology Management (MMT) and the Doctor of Technology Management (DMT). Complementing the Technology Management study program, the inauguration of this interdisciplinary school also presents a new study program, namely the Master of Innovation and Technology (MIST), which also oversees the Professional Engineer Program (PPI) and the Continuing Training Program (PPB).
At the end of the ceremony, he also hopes that the launch of SIMT will further strengthen ITS steps to produce graduates who are competitive and able to meet the needs of the world of work and are carried out professionally and according to planning. “With this inauguration, I hope that ITS will become one of the examples of successful interdisciplinary school pioneers who are worthy of being offered at the international level,” he said optimistically.
In addition to the inauguration of SIMT and the MIST Study Program, in a series of the 25th anniversary of MMT ITS, a Virtual Alumni Gathering and Studium Generale were also held with the topic Putting Humanity Beyond Technology: How to Manage Innovation in the Disruption Era.
