Three Strategies for FTUI 2022-2026 to deal with VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity), namely First, Strengthening Engineering Entrepreneurship (Empowering Engineering Entrepreneurship). Second, Improving the Quality of Innovation Research, Community Service, and High Impact (Impactful Research and Innovation). And the third is the Modernization of Engineering Education with High Impact (Modernization of Engineering Education).
The second session of Exposure Regarding the Technical LAM Accreditation Procedure was delivered by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ir. Nasruddin, M.Eng (Chairman of the LAM Engineering Evaluation and Accreditation Committee, FTUI). In his presentation, Prof. Nasruddin explained that accreditation has an important role to improve the quality of study programs in universities.
