PII Collaborates with IPB to Improve the Quality of Indonesian Engineers
IPB University and the Indonesian Engineers Association signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) at Grand Sahid Jaya Hotel, Jakarta (10/9). On this occasion the Vice Chancellor for Cooperation and Information System of IPB University was attended by Prof. Dr. Ir Dodik Ridho Nurrochmat and the PII General Chairperson, Dr. Ir Heru Dewanto. The signing of the MoU was carried out in conjunction with the closing of the Extraordinary Congress of the Extraordinary Congress and the PII National Meeting (Rapimnas) 2019.
On the occasion Prof. Dodik R. Nurrochmat said several things that IPB University would do with PII after the signing of the MoU. "The signing of the MoU was carried out in order to fulfill the PP of Engineering, where a professional engineer must have a certificate of expertise from a tertiary institution. Before the regulation there was indeed no such provision. But now the certification of the engineer must be carried out by the tertiary institution PII, "he said.
According to him, for now the most ready to carry out the certification program at IPB University is in the field of forestry namely the Faculty of Forestry and the field of agricultural technology namely the Faculty of Agricultural Technology. This relates to the number of lecturers who already have expertise certificates, because lecturers who teach the certification program must already have expertise certificates. "But I am sure, in the future we will be able to carry out a certification program for every expertise available at IPB University," said the lecturer at the Faculty of Forestry IPB University.
Meanwhile, Dr. Heru Dewanto in his remarks conveyed that of the 40 tertiary institutions given the mandate, 30 more universities had signed the MoU and 25 had signed a cooperation agreement with PII. "We also have a new information system related to member data collection and other administrative processes. We do this to continue to improve the performance of PII, "he said. (Dinof / Zul)
