Passing the golden age of 50 is certainly an achievement for the academics community of the Faculty of Engineering, Parahyangan Catholic University (FT Unpar) who just celebrated its 58th Anniversary, on Friday (2/11). Raising the theme “Building Superior Competence through Strong Collegiality”, the Anniversary celebration was held at the Bumi Sangkuriang Hotel, Ciumbuleuit.
Attended by the academic community of FT Unpar, alumni, and the ranks of the rector, the event was opened with a speech from the head of the organizer of Budianastas Prastyatama, ST.MT, as well as the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering Unpar Dr. Yohanes Basuki Dwisusanto . “The Faculty of Engineering requires strong and solid collegiality to advance the quality of our education. Until now we have been known as a respected education provider in Bandung, and (this) must be strived to be better and better, “said Yohanes Budi in his remarks. He also stressed the importance of continuing collaboration in conducting research, community service and teaching in anticipation of the ongoing industrial revolution 4.0.
This time the Oratio Dies was delivered by Dr. Paulus Karta Wijaya, a Civil Engineering lecturer at Unpar. He presented a paper entitled “Analysis of Soil Interaction – Structure Due to Dynamic Load”. In his presentation, he examined the relationship between building foundations and land using direct analysis methods and sub-structure methods, a unique study that is rarely discussed by engineers who often pay attention to efficiency rather than detail.
The Anniversary event was continued with courtesy and award distribution for lecturers, education staff and outstanding students.
