Monday (09/01/2017). Considering the fact that there are few aircraft maintenance workshops in Indonesia, Vocational College UGM (SV UGM) realized that it is necessary to prepare skilful human resources on aircraft maintenance. A significant way to prepare it is by accelerating the formation of Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) of aircraft under the management of Maintenance and Management of Heavy Equipment Engineering Study Program.
To support the idea of developing MRO concentration, SV UGM visited PT. Garuda Maintenance Facility (GMF) aiming at the agenda of mapping the demands of human resources in PT. GMF (5/1/2017). Attending this visit were Dean of Vocational College UGM Wikan Sakarinto, ST., M. Sc., Ph. D., Vice Dean for Collaboration and Strategic Initiatives Radhian Krisnaputra, S. T., M. Eng., and Director of Vocational Development Center Ir. Hotma Prawoto Sulistyadi , M. T., IP-Md. Visit from SV UGM was warmly welcome by Director Human Capital Heriyanto Agung Putra and staffs.
Further, Radhian said, MRO concentration would be added in Study Program of Maintenance and Management of Heavy Equipment Engineering to yield skilful graduates to work at institutions and companies regarding the human resources on aircraft maintenance. To be expected in the future, there is no need for Indonesian aircrafts to get maintenance abroad but in Indonesia.
SV UGM became the 10th educational institution to have joint project with PT. GMF following 9 polytechnics in Indonesia. Referring that collaboration, SV UGM be given opportunity to send some internship students to PT. GMF.
By taking advantages of establishing collaboration with PT. GMF, SV UGM expects to be an outstanding educational institution which is acknowledged of being the center of vocational education for aircraft maintenance both nationally and internationally. SV UGM also expects to be an independent, competitive and professional institution. (Trl by Tyas)
