This collaboration aims to produce future employees who possess technical competence and are ready to work. They are expected to meet the business standards of the wider community.

“Aside from that, the program is also expected to propel and strengthen FIT ITB in solving industrial problems and establishing industrial cooperation as a part of Tri Dharma of Higher Education,” he continued.

Meanwhile, the President Director and CEO of Siemens Indonesia, Lamine Jendoubi stated that the Digital Twin Ecosystem Program has become the most important matter of technology development transformation in Indonesia today.
