Monday, 4 November 2019. STT-PLN visited Malaysia Technical University of Melaka. The visit was aimed to develop cooperation with international parties, especially in the academic field. The visit was attended by the Leaders of STT-PLN, the Head of Electrical Engineering Diploma Study Program, and the Head of Informatics Engineering Bachelor Study Program.
The visit of the leaders of STT-PLN and its ranks was warmly welcomed by UteM representatives, and the morning event was attended by the Dean of the Faculty of Information & Communication Technology, Gs. Dr. Othman bin Mohd. along with his staff and the Dean of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Prof. Madya Ir. Dr. Md. Nazri bin Othman and his staff. The event began with the introduction of the UTeM campus profile to the group from STT-PLN, followed by a technical meeting on curriculum discussion and group visitation to several laboratories in the faculty of Information & Communication Technology and the Electrical Engineering faculty.
In discussing the curriculum of each study program, it can be concluded that there are some similarities in the courses in UTeM and STT-PLN but with some different course credits. In the future, some efforts will be made to adjust the course credits to ensure the continuity of the cooperation that will be held for Student exchange, Double Degree, Joint Research programs, etc.
After the meeting with the Faculty members, the leaders of STT-PLN and the ranks had a meeting with Vice Chancellor of UTeM, Prof. Datuk Dr. Raha Abdul Rahim. At the meeting, an agreement was reached to build a cooperation including: an internship program, student exchange, lecturer exchange, research collaboration, and dual degree programs for both bachelor (S1) and Magister (S2) degrees. Besides, it is expected that STT-PLN will host the offshore PhD program.
This is a good opportunity for STT-PLN to improve and align itself with foreign universities. Let’s jump as high as possible so that STT-PLN which will be transformed into the PLN Institute of Technology can become a superior university.
