ITS Campus, ITS News – As one of the pioneers of advanced technology campuses, the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh November (ITS) continues to be a role model for other campuses in Indonesia. This time through the Directorate of Innovation and Science Technology Area (DIKST), ITS had the opportunity to conduct benchmarking activities with Bina Nusantara University (Binus) Jakarta regarding the development of the science and technology area (KST) Wednesday (3/8), at the ITS Rectorate Building.

ITS Director of Innovation and Science Technology Area Agus Muhammad Hatta ST MSi Ph.D. explained ITS KST was established in 2017 and continues to expand its territory this year. He also added that KST is divided into four areas: the ICT and Robotics cluster, the Automotive cluster, the Maritime cluster, and the Creative Center cluster. “Each KST is authorized to accommodate every work or innovation from students and lecturers who need it,” he explained.

In his presentation, the lecturer, who is familiarly called Hatta, revealed that some parties still misinterpret the meaning of KST itself. For ordinary people and the government, KST has still considered an amusement park that is touched by technology. “Therefore, it is appropriate for us as a technology university to straighten out the meaning of KST itself,” he said.

However, the Physics Engineering Department lecturer explained that lecturers and students must possess several principles before building a science and technology area. One is the spirit of collaborating with other parties who support each other. This is important because innovation can be born quickly if there are activities to exchange ideas with others.

In response to this, the Vice Chancellor for Research and Technology Transfer at Binus University, Prof. Tirta Nugraha Mursitama, SSos MM Ph.D. CDMS CBDMP said that Binus would have great potential to become one of ITS partners in developing the science and technology area. This can happen because of Binus’ ambition. “We are very ambitious in developing this KST, so we hope that cooperation with ITS will be established in the future,” he said.

Tirta hopes that ITS will always accompany Binus in the development of the science and technology area. He also felt motivated by the spirit of ITS in advancing Indonesian technology through every field in the ITS KST. “Thank you ITS for the help. We are also happy for ITS’s role in helping our KST development,” he concluded happily. (ITS Public Relation)
