FTEK and Visionet Officially Establish Partnership

The Universitas Kristen Satya Wacana (UKSW) Electrical Engineering and Computer Faculty (FTEK) officially made a partnership with PT. Visionet Data Internasional. This was marked by the signing of a partnership agreement by the FTEK Dean, Ir. Hartanto Kusumo Wardana, M.T., and the President Director of PT. Visionet Data Internasional, Paulinus Koesoemo on Thursday (24 January) in the FTEK meeting room.

Also present in this occasion the other day were Vice Rector I Dr. Iwan Setyawan; Vice Rector IV Joseph Ernest Mambu, S.Pd., M.A., Ph.D.; the Head of the Electrical Engineering Study Program, Andreas Ardian Febrianto, M.T.; the Head of the Computer Systems Study Program, Handoko, S.T., M.Eng., Ph.D.; as well as the Coordinator of the FTEK Student Affairs, Atyanta Nika Rumaksari, M.B.A., M.T.

Accompanying the President Director of PT. Visionet were Tiurida Hutabarat as an HR Consultant and Ezra Kurniadi as an IT Governance and Business Process Deputy.

Paulinus Koesoemo conveyed that this partnership was made to improve the opportunities of UKSW FTEK graduates to be better prepared and quicker to be absorbed directly in the work world.

As he explained, PT. Visionet, which operates in the Information Communication Technology (ICT) field, needs many young talented individuals to support the development of its company, which is headquartered in Tangerang. This partnership also provides more opportunities for Visionet to acquire qualified employees.

“The scope of this partnership will be outlined in the form of an internship program for three until twelve months, a final project that lasts twelve months, as well as opens more possibilities for students to obtain full-time positions at our company,” he clarified.

Involved in Various Projects

Paulinus Koesoemo added that the implementation of this partnership in the first stage will be done with an internship program. Students will be given the chance to be involved in the smart city project, focusing on hardware like sensors and microprocessors.

Meanwhile, on behalf of the FTEK academic community, Hartanto was very appreciative of the opportunity to have this partnership.

He clarified that this partnership is expected to be able to introduce students to the real work world. “Having students immersed in real industry practices will certainly be a challenge as well as add to their skills before they work in society,” he explained.

Hartanto was also pleased because the students could hone their abilities in applying what they have learned up until now in the classroom. Through this scheme, he hopes that more students will develop their skills.

Meanwhile, on behalf of the institution, the UKSW Vice Rector IV was very receptive of this cooperation, which previously was started by the Information Technology Faculty (FTI). The semester credit system for the internship program is rather large, which motivates UKSW to establish numerous partnerships with industries. Joseph also hopes that in the future they can create tangible works together, opening the possibility to coordinate at the research level. (at/chis/upk_bpha/photo:gde_bpha).
