The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Universitas Indonesia (DTSL FTUI) in collaboration with PT MIDASINDO Teknik Utama, held a seminar entitled “Design of Building Structures and Their Foundations”. This seminar was held in a hybrid manner, namely online through the Zoom Meeting platform and offline at GK Building 3rd Floor, FTUI, on Wednesday (26/10/22), 09.00-16.00 WIB.
In the opening of this seminar, it was opened with an offline speech from the Chair of DTSL FTUI, Ayomi Dita Rarasati, S.T., M.T., Ph.D., “The collaboration between DTSL FTUI and PT MIDASINDO Teknik Utama has taken place several times. This collaboration is certainly very beneficial, both in terms of structure and non-structure. Thank you very much PT MIDASINDO Teknik Utama, hopefully, this collaboration can continue well.”
Also present to give a speech online, the CEO of PT MIDASINDO Teknik Utama, Dr. Ir. FX Supartono, “The development of architectural science affects the development of technology so that we are required to design buildings that are more effective and efficient, by utilizing sophisticated software. For this reason, FTUI and PT MIDASINDO Teknik Utama entered into a cooperation agreement by providing 200 licensed software to FTUI DTSL students, to support lecture assignments. In addition, this collaboration is also an effort to avoid the use of pirated software in the student environment.”
This event is a form of continuation of the collaboration between PT Midasindo and DTS UI which has been established since 2020. This collaboration is based on a shared desire to improve the quality of education at DTS UI, especially in the field of structural analysis using licensed software, as well as to reduce the use of pirated software which is still rife in the Higher Education environment. From the ongoing collaboration, PT Midasindo has provided licensed software in the form of donations that are used by DTS UI in lecture/research activities.
