Taiwan Tech Representatives Visit UGM in Indonesia
 Office of International Affairs
Taiwan Tech has been involved in close collaboration with Indonesian tertiary institutions. The University of Gadjah Mada (hereinafter referred to as UGM), one of Taiwan Tech’s partner universities, is a public research university in Indonesia. Founded in 1949, UGM is not only the oldest higher education institution in Indonesia but also one of the country’s most prestigious universities. It has 18 colleges, 27 research centers and approximately 55,000 students. At present, Taiwan Tech’s College of Engineering, College of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, and School of Management have signed joint dual-degree agreements with UGM. From the academic years 2007-08 to 2016-17, the cumulative number of UGM students studying at Taiwan Tech (including joint degree students) has reached 52. The Department of Industrial Management accounts for the highest number of students at 21.
As part of the implementation of the Taiwan government’s "New Southbound Policy,” which promotes a focus on people, bilateral communication and resource sharing, Taiwan Tech representatives, including President Liao Ching-Jong, Vice President Zhu Yi-Xu , Dean of International Affairs Wang Meng-Jiy, Dean of the College of Engineering J.C. Liu, Dean of the College of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science Huang Bohr-Ran and Dean of the School of Management Luan Bin, visited UGM from May 8th to 11th this year (2017) and signed a university-level cooperative Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). Our representatives were received by UGM President Dr. Dwikorita, Vice President Prof. Didi Achjari, and Director of Cooperation and International Affairs Dr. Anna Marie Wattie, together with the deans of UGM colleges. The two parties engaged in a discussion of the current situation and future prospects. The College of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science and UGM’s Faculty of Engineering also signed a joint master’s degree agreement and a student exchange agreement.
In addition to strengthening the exchange of visits between faculty members to promote research cooperation, as well as the bilateral exchange between students, this visit aimed to further promote a joint doctoral degree program between Taiwan Tech and UGM. This will allow students to acquire two degrees from both universities in a shorter period of time, so that more international academic talent can be nurtured. In addition, the Vocational College of UGM intends to cooperate with Taiwan Tech in terms of faculty training, student vocational training and business internships. The two universities hope to deepen future collaboration in various fields, work together to cultivate and inspire high quality students, and realize a multi-faceted win-win situation in their cooperation.
