The Department of Geodetic Engineering , Gadjah Mada University in collaboration with the Department of Geomatics, National Cheng Kung University Taiwan will hold a short course on the use of UAV photogrammetry for 3D modeling. Professor Jiann Yeou Rau will provide material for 12 days from January 27 to February 7, 2020 in the Meeting Room I of the UGM Geodetic Engineering Department Building.
Gunung Agung is one of the most active volcanoes in Indonesia located in Karangasem regency, Bali. Mount Agung had an increased activity and on September 18, 2017 the Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (PVMBG) officially raised the status of the alert into alert, as well as on 22 September 2017 rose again to alert. Residents and pets have been evacuated to spread to several evacuations. However on October 29, 2017 PVMBG officially downgraded its status from alert to alert.
Refugees living in evacuation with makeshift facilities, automatically will appear some diseases that attack the refugees. The government, especially the Dinas Kesehatan, also contributed to the handling of these issues, ranging from the health of the IDPs who must be maintained, the trauma healing after the disaster, and many refugees belonging to the vulnerable categories of elderly, pregnant women and toddlers.
On September 26, 2017, a public lecture and ERDAS software grant from Leica Geosystems Indonesia to the UGM Geodetic Engineering Department was held. A total of 500 software licenses consisting of three leading products of ERDAS, Geomedia Desktop 2016, ERDAS Foundation 2016 and ERDAS IMAGINE 2016 are distributed free of charge to UGM Geodetic Engineering Department students interested in using GIS, Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing software.
Along with the symbolic software license submission, a public lecture by Bpk. Badruszaman and Bpk. Arvy Fachrully as representative of Leica Geosystems Indonesia. In his general lecture, Mr. Badruszaman explained about the progress of survey and mapping technology in Indonesia, especially on airborne mapping for photogrammetry, LiDAR and hydrography. Students who attend seem interested in following the explanation delivered, as evidenced by the many questions asked to the presenters about the presentation submitted. The public lecture and licensing ceremony was then ended by doorprice-sharing from Leica Geosystems to some of the lucky students.
At the 30th National Student Scientific Competition (PIMNAS) competition organized by Kemenristekdikti at Universitas Muslim Indonesia Makassar on 23rd to 28th of August 2017, one of the team from Universitas Gadjah Mada won the 1st Winner of PKM Entrepreneurship. The team consists of Ali Surojaya (Engineering Geodesi 2016) as chairman, and comprises Muhammad Fahriza (Engineering Physics 2016), Marisha Salsabila (Computer Science 2016), Muhammad Nizar Rahman (Computer Science 2016), and Maulidini Fatimah Azahra (Remote Sensing and GIS 2016). With the guidance of Dr.Eng Herianto, S.T, M.Eng.
Leica Geosystems Indonesia in cooperation with UGM Geodesy Engineering Department provides 500 free ERDAS software licenses for use by students. Here are the free shared software:
1. GeoMedia Desktop 2016
2. ERDAS Foundation 2016
3. ERDAS IMAGINE 2016 (64 bit or 32 bit)
All three software can be used by students who are interested to explore the field of GIS, photogrammetry and remote sensing using ERDAS software. Technical installation and licensing implementation can contact Dany Laksono at Lt.1 Building Geodesy Engineering UGM.
The Hydrographic and Oceanographic Center of Indonesian Navy (Pushidrosal) from September 11-15, 2017 hosted a Five Day Training in Hydrographic Survey for Disaster Management and Relief at Mercure Hotel, Ancol, North Jakarta, Monday (11/9) .
The training, which focuses on the role of hydrographic surveys in natural disaster management and response, was attended by 25 participants from 12 East Asia Hydrographic Commission (EAHC) member countries, namely Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Brunei Darussalam, Philippines, Timor Leste, Papua New Guinea, Vietnam, Japan, China, South Korea and Indonesia as the host.
Mid-year 2017, the Department of Geodesy Engineering graduated more than 50 final year students as a Bachelor of Engineering (ST). Of these, as many as 42 students are students who complete their studies on time (4 semesters). This period also recorded the graduation record of Geodetic Engineering with the highest graduates with the highest average GPA and the acquisition of Cum Laude degree, which is 20 people.
Info Day is an activity intended for new students of Geodetic Engineering Study Program, Engineering faculty, UGM. This event was a forum to provide various information about Geodetic Engineering Study Program such as academic activities, socialization, lecturer introduction, campus facilities and etc. Info day was attended by 103 new students, lecturers, and members of KMTG 2017. KMTG is a student organization in Department of Geodetic Engineering. Head of Geodetic Engineering Department, Mr. Ir. Prijono Nugroho D, MSP., Ph.D, started this event and gave a speech. Then, the event continued with socialization in the classroom. Not only socialization in the classroom, but new students are invited to tour the campus and know the location of campus facilities such as laboratory, classroom, teaching room, mosque,secretariat room of KMTG, and BSO. This Tour is guided by KMTG members. At the end of the event, Mr. Harintaka, ST., MT. as the Head of Geodetic Engineering Study Program, provided advice and gave spirit for new students in Geodetic Engineering Study Program.
