With the title of Internship in Spatial Planning for Regional and National Growth (INSPIRING) Batch II, the Ministry of Agrarian and Spatial Planning/National Land Agency (ATR/BPN) in this case the Directorate General of Spatial Planning (DJTR) participates in the Independent Campus Certified Internship Program which was launched by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology (Kemendikbud Ristek) in 2022.

Through INSPIRING, DJTR involves students to be placed in Regency/City Spatial Planning Offices or Organizations (OPD) in order to support the acceleration of the preparation of Detailed Spatial Plans (RDTR).

In addition, INSPIRING is expected to provide students with exposure to the realities of the world of work so that they are better prepared to face the world of work.

As one of the series of INSPIRING Batch II 2022 Programs, DJTR conducts socialization and consolidation with universities, one of which is with the Faculty of Engineering, Universitas Brawijaya which was held on Thursday (07/07), at the Dean Building, Faculty of Engineering, Universitas Brawijaya.

Secretary of the Directorate General of Spatial Planning, Farid Hidayat, explained that DJTR has a big job, namely the preparation of 2,000 RDTR.

To achieve this target, the support of human resources and the latest technology is needed. One of DJTR’s breakthroughs in realizing this target is to strengthen cooperation with the academic community.

“When the Ministry of Education and Culture offers a breakthrough MBKM program, we welcome this opportunity as best we can by involving fellow students in the real world of work,” he said.

Furthermore, Farid invited Brawijaya University to work together in the preparation and implementation of the INSPIRING Batch II program in 2022.

The Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, Universitas Brawijaya, Hadi Suyono, emphasized that implementing this program can be a sustainable collaboration to overcome the limited resources needed by OPD. The latter is in charge of spatial planning in the region.

“Our students never tire of being part of a partner who works with institutions in the field of spatial planning,” added Hadi Suyono.

Both parties urge the students, especially from the Urban & Regional Planning Department to join this program.  (*)
