“Architecture and Chemical Engineering are only separated by the canteen so we often interact,” said the Dean of FTUI, Prof. Dr. Heri Hermansyah, S.T., M.T., IPU when opening the Dean Greets Department of Architecture event (26/01) which was held virtually. The event was attended by the Dean and the two Vice Deans of FTUI for the period 2022-2026, Prof. Dr. Ir. Yanuar, M.Eng., M.Sc. and Prof. Ir. Mahmud Sudibandriyo, M.Sc., Ph.D.

Also present at the event were the newly appointed Head and Secretary of the Department of Architecture, Dr. Ir. Achmad Hery Fuad, M.Eng. and Kristanti Dewi Paramita, S.Ars., M.A., Ph.D. As many as 29 people attended the event.

“Starting with the Dean’s inauguration, FTUI continues to appoint FTUI management starting on 7, 10, 14, and 21 January. I am currently working as a Dean in my 3rd week of work, while my cabinet team has only worked for 1 week. After completing the Dean Greets Department roadshow, I will continue to consolidate with DGB and SAF,” said Dean Heri in his opening remarks.

The Dean greets the Department as a forum for dialogue for faculty leaders, in this case the Dean and the two Vice Deans to convey the prepared programs. “Besides that, I also want to hear the aspirations of lecturers, students, alumni, and staff related to programs that may not have been accommodated from four years ago. Maybe it can be included for the next four years. So please just convey your aspirations, suggestions, input and advice,” said Dean Heri.

In the discussion and question and answer session, various suggestions and questions were accommodated by the Dean and the two Vice Deans. Some suggestions that were well received and immediately implemented from the Department of Architecture were related to better arrangements for implementing the Merdeka Learning Campus Merdeka (MBKM) in the future.

In this regard, the Faculty MBKM committee was immediately formed consisting of the Dean, Vice Dean for Education, Associate Dean for Academic, Head of the Education Modernization and Internationalization Unit (Modirpen), Heads of Departments and one representative from each department. In the future, under the coordination of the Modirpen Unit Head, this Committee will begin to formulate the FT MBKM SOP (registration/data collection of MBKM participants, supervision of MBKM implementation by the committee, evaluation of MBKM results and credit transfer processes).
