ITS Campus ITS News – After successfully running the High School Double Track Program with the East Java Provincial Education Office, the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh November (ITS) this time was trusted by the East Kalimantan (Kaltim) Provincial Education and Culture Office (Disdikbud) to run the High School Dual Track Program. The collaboration was inaugurated by signing the Cooperation Agreement (PKS) at the ITS Rectorate Building Tuesday (6/9).

Head of East Kalimantan Disdikbud Muhammad Kurniawan SE Ak MM, in his opening remarks, said East Kalimantan Disdikbud adopted the Double Track program, which was previously successful in East Java. His party initiated the Dual Track Program to empower the quality of human resources (HR) for high school students, especially those who do not have the opportunity to go to college.

This program is also an effort by the East Kalimantan Education and Culture Office to increase the rate of economic growth. Because if high school graduates are equipped with skills and expertise, they will be more readily accepted in the business world, industry, and entrepreneurship after graduation. “As for our children who continue their studies, it will be a provision for them to be able to compete with other students,” he said.

On the other hand, as the second largest province in Indonesia and the location of the new National Capital City (IKN), this program supports the indigenous people of East Kalimantan to participate in the development of IKN in the future. Do not be the host; the people of East Kalimantan only act as spectators. “Therefore, we propose to cooperate with ITS,” he continued.

Meanwhile, ITS Vice Chancellor IV Bambang Pramujati ST MSc Eng Ph.D. said this collaboration aligned with ITS goals. As the best university in Indonesia, ITS does not only focus on its students but also has the responsibility to advance society in general. One of them is high school students who do not have the opportunity to go to college.

Bambang said ITS would fully support the Dual Track Program, which will be implemented in East Kalimantan Province. His party will prepare presenters from various parties who are competent in their fields to participate in the success of this program. Finally, the ITS Mechanical Engineering Department lecturer thanked the East Kalimantan Education and Culture Office for collaborating with ITS. “Thank you for trusting ITS to develop the quality of human resources in East Kalimantan,” he concluded.
