Goal & Objectives

Goal :

`To be the first choice for students and professionals in finding the source of knowledge pertaining to national and world class agro-industry when striving to be leaders in agro-industrial system engineering, technology, and management`

Objectives  :

    1. The good governance of the study program could be achieved by focusing the improvement of the academic quality. The achievement could be reach through two strategies: (1) Strengthening the academic process (standardization of field works and the process of thesis preparation, the preparation of accessible and readily used academic databases and learning process control); (2) formally and informally intensive personal relationship (Friday lunch, music refreshment, monthly incentive for the support staffs, and annual agro-industrial company visit).

    2. The increasing alumni competency on agro-techno-preneurship, and sustainable programs as a support to the professionals in the agricultural industry. The achievement is pursued by two strategies: (1) Strengthening the quality of courses (updating the Semester Course Outline and Lesson Plan /RPKPS and Reference Support Program); (2) Strengthening the Master Program of Agro-industrial Technology, and the establishment of Agro-industrial Science Doctoral Program in Agricultural Engineering Department, Faculty of Agricultural Technology, Universitas Gadjah Mada.

    3. The development of networking courses both at national and international levels. The efforts to achieve this objective are through two strategies: (1) initiation of a national-scale agroindustry professional organization (APTA); (2) initiation of collaboration with universities / institutions abroad.

    4. The increasing number of qualified researches and publications of academic staffs, both in accredited national and international journals in order to enrich the development of agro-industry sciences, will be pursued through the establishment of research interest group; competitive research grants from university and other institutions; providing assistance/ incentive for publication; encompassing the scope of agro-industry as cases in class; and developing collaborative researches with industries and local government.
