ITS Campus, ITS News – Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) received a visit from a delegation from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) on Thursday (8/9), reinforcing the brotherhood that has existed since the early 2000s. Located in the ITS Rectorate Building, the meeting agreed on more intense collaboration between the two institutions, especially in developing existing innovations.

Prof. Dr. Ir Mochamad Ashari, Chancellor of ITS, stated at the beginning of the meeting that ITS and UTM had formed a very close working relationship thus far. This is demonstrated by the numerous internationalization initiatives that ITS community members have engaged in at UTM, such as IISMA, Lab-Based Internship, and the Asia Technological University Network (ATU-Net). “We sincerely hope that in the future, ITS and UTM can collaborate more quickly,” added Ashari.

Welcoming the ITS Professor of Electrical Engineering enthusiastically, UTM Chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Ahmad Fauzi Ismail also proposed the establishment of a collaborative research unit between ITS and UTM. He hopes that the collaboration between the two research units can facilitate collaboration between the two without being hindered by distance. “It is hoped that with this joint research unit, ITS and UTM can provide something more impactful for the nation and state,” said the man who is familiarly called Datuk Fauzi enthusiastically.

He further explained that there are at least four research areas with great potential for collaboration between the two institutions, such as robotics, automotive, maritime, and biomedical engineering. With this collaboration, it is hoped that there will also be many more joint publications between ITS and UTM researchers.

In addition to the invitation for collaboration, the university, which is ranked 203rd in the QS World University Ranking 2022 also provides support for ITS in the Matching-Fund Program and updates the double degree mechanism. Previously, the double degree policy at UTM was not yet available for undergraduate students, but now a new approach has made it possible.

These numerous collaborative suggestions were also well received by ITS leaders. One of these was revealed by the Director of Research and Community Service (DRPM) ITS Fadlilatul Taufany ST PhD, who indicated that ITS now has a particular research program. “Of course, we (ITS, ed) are extremely thrilled with the participation of UTM as the key collaborator, given UTM’s repute,” he stated.

During the three-hour visit, the Chancellor of UTM and his team saw firsthand numerous research advances carried out by the ITS academic community. Starting with the GESITS electric motorcycle, e-Trail, electric automobiles, and electric buses. Not to mention the RAISA Robot, DigITS tablet, and other revolutionary products that ITS is actively developing.
