ITS Campus, ITS News – Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) and the Dutch Fontys School of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) have collaborated through a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) to produce Information System graduates who can compete in the global arena. In line with this, as many as five ITS Information Systems Department students were dispatched to participate in the double degree program at Fontys ICT.

The undergraduate study program student departed from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, Cengkareng, on August 9. The Head of the ITS Information Systems Department, Dr. Mudjahidin ST MT, explained that the five students would participate in this program next year. “Students will follow the academic curriculum that has been designed by Fontys ICT, including completing around 32 units of the Semester Credit System (SKS),” he explained.

The lecturer, who is familiarly called Mudja, said that while undergoing the double degree program, they had a golden opportunity to explore as much knowledge as possible in the Windmill Country. Additional knowledge and skills were relevant to Information Systems courses, as well as soft skills such as communication skills, relationships, and competency qualification skills to apply for jobs.

Mudja said that the ITS Information Systems Department provided not only administrative assistance for student departures but also gave strong encouragement. “Although some students had problems with the reason of considering the cost to go to the Netherlands, we try to continue to motivate them, so they don’t hesitate to go,” he said.

The ITS Industrial Engineering alumnus hopes that the double degree program can continue to run every year and positively impact both ITS and Fontys ICT. “The increasing number of students who leave for exchange from year to year can also raise the good name of ITS in the national and international arena,” he added optimistically.

Finally, Mudja advised the students to take full advantage of the opportunity to study in the Netherlands face-to-face. “Hopefully, they can follow the lesson well and later can apply the knowledge gained to contribute to the homeland,” he advised. (ITS Public Relation/far)
