ITS Campus, ITS News — Continuing to strengthen itself in the field of research, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) has once again confirmed eight new professors at the ITS Professor Council Open Session event. This inauguration was held in the ITS Research Center Building Auditorium on Thursday (7/3).

On this occasion, ITS Chancellor Prof. Dr. Ir Mochamad Ashari MEng said that ITS, as a legal entity state university (PTN-BH), has three main organs as its important pillars. One of these organs is the role of the Professorial Council in assisting the work of the Academic Senate. “Thank God, ITS continues to experience an increase in the number of professors every year,” said the professor, who is familiarly called Ashari.

According to him, increasing the number of professors can help improve the quality of research and the ranking of universities. Furthermore, Ashari explained, ITS currently has a total of 167 active professors, who have been confirmed with the addition of 73 new professors since 2019. “For starters, at the beginning of this year, we welcomed eight new professors,” he said.

With the addition of eight new professors at ITS this time, Ashari admitted that he was very proud. The professor of the Department of Electrical Engineering firmly hopes that the increase in the number of professors can further improve the quality of the institution. “The most important thing is that it can provide a new color to the world of research in Indonesia,” he reminded.

Starting the inauguration procession, the 196th ITS professor, Prof. I Dewa Ayu Agung Warmadewanthi, ST, MT, PhD, delivered his scientific oration entitled Technological Innovation in Recovering Material and Energy from Waste to Drive the National Circular Economy. In this case, the lecturer, who is usually called Wawa, emphasized that the current national waste processing method is no longer at the 3R (reduce, reuse, recycle) stage. “However, it is about how to create products that have economic value,” explained this professor from the Department of Environmental Engineering.

Continuing the oration session, the former Director General of Higher Education (Dirjen Dikti) in 2015, Prof. Dr. Ir Patdono Suwignjo MEng, delivered his oration regarding performance management for the innovation process in Indonesian BUMN. According to the 197th ITS professor from the Department of Systems and Industrial Engineering, the innovation performance framework in Indonesia has now reached the open innovation phase.
