Before being renamed as Department of Marine Transportation Engineering per January 2017, the Department of Marine Transportation for Undergraduate Program has been accredited with rank of “B” starting from October 24, 2014 – October 23, 2019 in accordance with the Decree of National Accreditation Board for Higher Education (BAN-PT) No.403/SK/BAN-PT/Akred/S/X/2014. Along with the increase of Department performance and student achievement, at the beginning of 2017, Department of Marine Transportation Engineering applied re-accreditation to BAN-PT. Due to a change of department name, BAN-PT issued a new Decree in accordance with No.2934/SK/BAN-PT/Ak.PNB/S/VIII/2017 stating that the Bachelor Degree Program of Marine Transportation Engineering, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh November (ITS) accredited by “B” from 23 January 2017 to 23 October 2019.

In order to re-accredit the Undergraduate Program of the Department of Marine Transportation Engineering, on Friday last week (24 November 2017), Department has been visited by two assessors from BAN-PT namely Prof. Dr.Eng. Yanuar from University of Indonesia and Daeng Paroka, ST, MT, Ph.D. from Hassanudin University. The visitation of the two assessors is to perform document verification and physical checking of all information contained in the Bachelor Program Form (“Borang”) of Marine Transportation Engineering. In addition, there are some standards that become basic assessment of accreditation as follows:

Standard 1Vision, Mission, Objective, Target and Achievement Strategy
Standard 2Governance, Leadership, Management System and Quality Assurance
Standard 3Student Affairs and Graduates
Standard 4Human Resources

After the document verification agenda is over, the next agenda is an interview session with students and alumni. Some students expressed hope that the Department has its own building in the near future. The two alumni who currently work in the field of maritime shipping and logistics, they stated that the knowledge obtained from the Department of Marine Transportation Engineering is very useful in their career path. This is certainly an excellent input for the department, especially for formulating a new curriculum in the next year.

The last agenda is visit to laboratory and classroom. The closing session of this visitation event is marked by the submission of Minutes of Field Assessment for Accreditation of Study Program of Bachelor Level to Head of Department and Vice Dean of Faculty of Marine Technology.

At the 57th ITS Anniversary celebration on Friday, November 10, 2017, ITS got a special gift from the Ministry of Transportation of the Republic of Indonesia (MoT) with the signing of Memorandum of Understanding (Mou) at Rectorate Building ITS 1st floor. The MoU is linked to support for the development of “Tol Laut” (sea toll) program.

Minister of Transportation, Budi Karya Sumadi, stated that the current sea toll has been able to suppress the disparity rate of 20%. However, this program still needs improvement, especially in terms of the number of ship required. Therefore, MoT requires colleagues in education and science. “ITS is able to provide input through its research to improve sea toll program including ships required for sea toll route”. The contribution of research and innovation from ITS is expected to be a solution to solve current problems, such as cargo carried for sea toll that has not maximal yet,  vessels used are foreign made products and also problems on ship tracking.

Rector of ITS, Prof. Ir. Joni Hermana. M.Sc.ES., Ph.D. said that his university has been very advanced in the maritime sector so it is ready to help the government in developing the sea toll. “We have been able and advanced to create maritime equipment and will support the Ministry of Transportation to succeed the sea toll,” he said.

Prof. Dr. Ir. Ketut Buda Artana, M.Sc., as Vice Rector of ITS in Innovation, Cooperation, Alumni and International Relations, stated that there are several opportunities of this cooperation, which is to provide opportunities for human resources in MoT for pursuing their study on Master and Doctoral Programs in ITS, organizing training and workshops, joint research, joint funding and technopark development cooperation.

Ketut also described several innovations of ITS (from the Department of Marine Transportation) that have been worked on and can be used in the improvement of sea toll program, such as the standard calculation of port concessions, freight calculator of vessel on sea toll routes, development of floating infrastructure. In addition, there are also telematics products of marine transportation, namely: Application of Intelligent Transportation System in the field of sea transportation.

The Young Scientist Forum (YSF) roadshow at ITS is a collaboration between the Australian National University (ANU) Project of Indonesia and Department of Marine Transportation Engineering ITS. The reason behind this event takes place is many young Indonesian scientists are studying and conducting research at world-class institutions around the world, proving that Indonesian scientists are academically competitive to engage in scientific research of international caliber. In 2015, in collaboration with Indonesian Student Association in America (PPIA), the ANU Indonesia Project initiate the Young Scientist Forum (YSF) with the aim of
bringing resent PhD graduates working in research and academia to universities in Indonesia to:

  1. share their experience, including challenges working in the international environment, and
  2. share their current research and innovations, and how they contribute to advancing knowledge.

It is hoped that the YSF will inspire students and young academics to consider research as a career path, and to undertake innovative and new research topics.

In this year, YSF held in several universities in Indonesia, namely University of Indonesia, Hassanudin University and Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember. The YSF activities in ITS were held on November 2nd, 2017 at the BG Munaf Hall. ANU Indonesia Project is represented by Mrs. Lydia Napitupulu, while from Department of Marine Transportation Engineering is represented by Dr.-Ing Setyo Nugroho. The following speakers and research topics presented in YSF are:

  1. Wahyu Bambang Widayatno, PhD (Research Center for Physics, LIPI)
    • “Porous materials for catalytic biomass conversion”
  2. Satrio Wicaksono, PhD (World Resources Institute)
    • “From Lakes to Forests: A Small Research Contribution for a Resilient and Sustainable Environment in Indonesia”
  3. Dhimas Widhi Handani, ST., M.Sc. (Marine Engineering Department)
    • “Automatic Identification System (AIS) for Increasing Safety of Ship Traffic and Offshore Facilities in Indonesia”
