As a first trip of “Orientation and Monitoring Visit” this year, AUN/SEED-Net had managed to meet our on-going scholarship students and the new intakes at Institut Teknologi Bandung(ITB) on September 5, 2018. The trip was led by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Kasem Choocharukul, AUN/SEED-Net Assistant Executive Director, together with Ms. Jinjuta Masook, a program officer in charge of ITB. Currently, there are 14 students in total, including 2 new students from Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology(HCMUT) and Hanoi University of Science and Technology(HUST).
Warm welcoming speech was delivered by Prof. Dr. Hari Muhammad, Dean of Faculty of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, following by Prof. Dr. Kasem regarding the purposes and objectives of the visit. The discussion among students and their advisors were rather smooth while students’ study progress and their living conditions were thoroughly monitored in order to assure that they will be able to graduate within their scholarship period and also with the good support of proper environment.
ITB is a potential institution, which has been hosting international students across ASEAN region in various engineering fields such as Natural Disaster, Energy, Mechanical and Manufacturing and Environmental engineering. AUN/SEED-Net is very thankful for having ITB as one of our network institutions as well as for continuing further collaboration across the region.
