Diponegoro Exchange Experience Program (DEEP) by Universitas Diponegoro

Diponegoro Exchange Experience Program (DEEP) by Universitas Diponegoro

Diponegoro Exchange Experience Program (DEEP) is the most integrated student mobility scheme provided by Universitas Diponegoro (Undip).

This program is designed to accommodate international students from both partner and non-partner Higher Education Institutions/Universities around the globe to experience 1 (one) semester at Undip.

The student from partner universities are able to get credits that are transferable in their home universities. By this scheme, students are categorized as Credit Transfer System (CTS) students.

The students with CES scheme only get a Diploma Supplement. But, by sending the students to participate in this program, non-partner universities are possible to propose an academic agreement with us, thus the students can transfer their earned credits during the program.

International Joint Course 2023 “Learning Urban Transformation: Ensuring Sustainability in a Changing World”

Urban transformation is an ongoing process as a systematic process of continuous adjustment and improvement of urban systems due to the changes in urban economic, social, landscape-ecological, and also management systems (Yuanzhi, et al., 2019).
Semarang City has experienced excessive urbanization and has been changing rapidly in both physical and socio-economic terms, from a less urban area to a more urban area. The development of peri-urban areas, which is very massive and shows uncontrolled trends, has given rise to various urban problems. On the one hand, Semarang City, located in the coastal area, has its urban complexities caused by climate change.
The International Joint Course 2023 provides opportunities for the participants to understand the urban transformation in areas that are experiencing rapid urbanization, and, at the same time, various problems related to the environment, socio-economic, infrastructure, and others arise.

According to her, the increase in the number of students who passed is inseparable from the preparations that the Faculty of Engineering had prepared to welcome IISMA 2023.

“For us, the most important key is the preparation. We have provided various preparations for our students so that they can pass IISMA this year. Starting from socialization, creating informative content about IISMA, to providing the online chat group for the applicants,” said Ms. Mada.

Vice Dean of Academic and Students Affairs, Prof. Dr. nat. tech. Siswo Sumardiono, S.T, M.T, appreciated the increase in the number of participants in this year. For him, this increase shows a good trend, where every year the number of students from the Faculty of Engineering who passed IISMA increases. “In my opinion, the increase in the number of students for this year is pretty good. From only 7 students in 2021, increase to 11 students in 2022, and now there are 13 students in 2023,” he said.

However, he highlighted the number of departments that send their students to this program. He hopes that in the next year, the number of participants can continue to increase and be more diverse. “Hopefully in 2024, the number of students participating in this IISMA program can increase and more students will participate from other departments,” said Prof. Siswo.

The students who passed the program also gave various responses regarding their acceptance as awardees. Stefanus Aditya Witjaksono, an awardee from the Department of Naval Architecture, said he was surprised when he was listed as one of the awardees. “Wow, to be honest, I was surprised because, in terms of achievements and organization, I was not as active as the others,” said Stefanus.

Nerissa Lenjau, one of the awardees from the Department of Environmental Engineering, showed a different response. She was grateful to have qualified as one of the awardees. She hopes that this opportunity can be useful not only for herself but also for others. “I am grateful to be given such an opportunity as one of the IISMA 2023 Awardees. Hopefully, I can use this new experience as best as possible and share it with the others.”
