Go International, TIP FTP Visits Osaka University – Japan

A number of lecturers from the Department of Agricultural Industrial Technology, Faculty of Agricultural Technology, Universitas Brawijaya (FTP UB) visited the Graduate School of Engineering, School of Engineering – Osaka University – Japan for ten consecutive days (3/11-12/11/2023).

Chaired by Wike Agustin Prima Dania, Ph.D. with members Prof. Sri Suhartini, Dr. Siti Asmaul Mustaniroh, Suprayogi, Ph.D. and Masud Effendi, STP. MP., several agendas for the lecturer’s work activities include making curriculum adjustments as well as scientific discussions related to inbound and outbound student mobility, outbound and inbound visiting staff, visiting professors, 3 in 1, distance learning, and foreign lecturer programs.

In addition, there are also other activities to fulfill other IKU achievements, such as the activity of writing international journal articles as an output of research activities. One of TIP lecturers even succeeded in finalizing and submitting an international journal article during his visit to Osaka.

“Some of the divisions in the Graduate School of Engineering – Osaka University and Agricultural Industrial Technology Undergraduate Study Program (PS S1 TIP), FTP UB include Applied Science and Technology with Biotechnology, Physics, Basic Engineering Sciences, and Sustainable Energy and Environmental Engineering with environmental systems, sustainable environmental design, environmental materials and sources, sustainable energy systems and several other divisions. Therefore, we are optimistic about synchronizing several of Osaka University’s divisions with courses that represent the 4 scientific fields at PS S1 TIP. “The joint curriculum preparation will be carried out by synchronizing the material in the relevant courses, the material topics and the credits that will be taken by students,” he explained.

Wike further explained several points of agreement obtained, including the willingness of Osaka University to accept students in outbound student mobility activities (2-week mobility or more) which are focused on relevant research activities. In this way, TIP FTP UB students also have the opportunity to conduct research at Osaka University and its partners. (dse/OKY/UB PR/ Trans. Iir)
