Finally, after a very intensive planning, I proudly announce the first cloud computing focus technology institute in Indonesia. This is an important milestone to land cloud computing, especially on Microsoft platform. ITPN – Institute of Technology Purwadhika Nusantara – aims to produce next generation of software engineers who are ready on Microsoft cloud technologies, covering cloud computing for business, games, and mobile.
The core values of ITPN is belief, values and action. ITPN was created from a strong belief that we can produce qualified software engineers in Indonesia in area of cloud computing to serve local, regional and global market. With cloud as its identity, ITPN aims to drive back “scientific and engineering education culture” as its core values while keep encouraging students to be practical in designing and constructing next generation cloud applications (actions).
ITPN curriculum is designed with proper portion of Math, Comp. Science and Software engineering, and very well aligned with all Microsoft platform. All students are required to have MCPD (Microsoft Certified Professional Developer) before graduation and job placement is guaranteed from some selected partners in Microsoft partner and customer ecosystem. ITPN provides link and match to IT industry by involving the employers in certain phases. ITPN will collaborate with PrimagamaPlus to filter talented high school students across Indonesia and provide scholarship for top talents.
In the next 4 years, I expect to have a great pool of talented world class Microsoft certified engineers from ITPN who will build the next generation applications. ITPN’s curriculum perfectly fit to Microsoft technology stack, and I look forward to seeing great education quality up there - and also, I feel so privileged to be able to influence ITPN curriculum from the beginning.
