ITS Campus, ITS News – The Department of Informatics Engineering, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) has long collaborated with Tomsk State University (TSU), Russia. In this regard, this department sent 12 students from the International Undergraduate Program (IUP) to conduct a double degree program at TSU last August.
Secretary of the ITS Department of Informatics Engineering Ir Ary Mazharuddin Shiddiqi SKom MComp Sc Ph.D. explained that this departure is part of the IUP program, which aims to provide students with international exposure experience. The 12 students will continue their studies for two years at a university ranked 272 in the QS World University Ranking in 2022.
Later, Ary continued, students participating in this program will get a bachelor’s degree from ITS and TSU. Not only that, but students can also build networking that will be useful after they graduate. “During their study period, students have the opportunity to take part in internships at international companies and even compete to work there,” he said.
The lecturer, who earned his doctorate at the University of Western Australia, revealed that preparations for the departure of these students had been planned since two years ago—starting from administrative arrangements and socialization with parents to planning for life while in Russia, not escape the attention of the department that has collaborated with various universities in the world.
In addition, regarding the conflict in Russia, coordination has also been carried out with the Attaché for Education and Culture (Atdikbud) at the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia (KBRI) in Moscow, the TSU, and the Indonesian Student Association (PPI) in Russia. “Various parties have been involved in assessing whether the double degree program can be carried out at Tomsk State University,” he said.
The man born in Kediri hopes that the twelve students can absorb new experiences while studying at one of the prestigious universities in the world. Not only that, by tasting the existing international exposure, it is hoped that these students can also impact other students. “By sharing his experiences while in Russia, of course, he can hopefully provide new knowledge for other students,” he concluded.
