Rector of ULM Prof. Dr. H. Sutarto Hadi M.Si., M.Sc in his marking congratulated to both recently-inaugurated Professors. He said it is very difficult to get to the academician’s career peak. Consistency in the Three Pillars of Higher Education is surely necessary. Moreover, we also need to write teaching book, references, and get our research into international journal publication. A professor is demanded to work more intensively in order to conduct more researches, publications, and patents which surely will become the new added value in sciences and technology. Hopefully, the increased number of professors will enable the improvement of learning quality in each study program or faculty. Further, this achievement is expected to be able to encourage the development of beneficial scientific work for sciences and mankind’s importance development. (ULM Public Relations)
