Information technology co-operation
Job Training Program
Every year, Mitrais facilitates job training programs for university students from various universities. The students spend around two months in one of Mitrais’ offices to experience professional life in an IT company. They do various software engineering tasks and take away many lessons from Mitrais’ professionals.
University students are keen to get first hand experience of the IT industry. Some of them come to Mitrais and gain practical knowledge of the industry directly from Mitrais’ managers. Mitrais welcomes these study excursion which usually takes place every three months.
Indonesian Vocational School Program
Mitrais is highly supportive of Indonesian education. A great way to show that support is by welcoming students from vocational schools or information technology institutes for on-the-job IT training. We have had students from Lembaga Pendidikan Bali Asia (LPBA) and Sekolah Tinggi Ilmu Komputer (STIKOM).
Career Planning Open Lectures
Mitrais’ reputation as a leading Indonesian IT company has led to a new initiative – helping students who are soon to graduate to get a ‘real world’ view of the IT industry. Mitrais sends it’s professionals to deliver open lectures on career planning. Students at Yogyakarta’s Santa Dharma University were the first to reap the benefits of this career planning open lecture.
As part of supporting Indonesian education, Mitrais has supported the improvement of curriculums in various universities. Universitas Udayana, STIKOM Bali, STEI-ITB are some of the universities that Mitrais has supported in this way.
From 2002 until 2013, Mitrais has hosted a comparative study program involving participants from the International Training Course on Information Technology Education Methodology (ITC) in cooperation with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), a Japanese government technical cooperation agency and the Electronic Engineering Polytechnic Institute of Surabaya (EEPIS). The participants of these training courses come from different countries in Asia and Africa.
Geological and mining engineering co-operation
MineScape, an integrated software solution for open cut and underground mining operations for both coal and mineral deposits, has been the foundation of a number of co-operative programs with leading Indonesian universities with faculties specialising in mining and geology.
MineScape is a product of ABB (formerly Ventyx) and sold by Mitrais in Indonesia.
The software has been introduced pro-bono at some universities:
- Institute of Technology Bandung (ITB) in Bandung,
- Padjadjaran University (UNPAD) in Bandung,
- Pembangunan Nasional University (UPN Veteran) in Yogyakarta, and
- Mulawarman University in Samarinda.
MineScape consists of a number of modules including: Core MineScape, Block Model, Geological Database, Stratmodel, Dragline, Drill and Blast, Roads, Open Cut, Survey, Schedule, Underground Planning, Geostatistic, and Ring Drill Design.
In 2000, ITB and Mitrais worked together in a co-operative program to equip the students from the Faculty of Technical Geology with skills in computer-generated geological modelling and mine planning. The students were given a hands-on introduction in general MineScape, Stratmodel and Open Cut Planning.
Similarly in 2004, Mitrais conducted a joint program with UNPAD to provide students from the Mathematics and Natural Sciences Faculty of the Geology Department with mine-ready skills in computer-generated geological modelling and reserve calculation.
The students were given hands-on introduction in general MineScape, stratigraphy modelling and reserve computation. This program began in 2005.
At UPN Veteran, MineScape software was introduced in 2001.
To date, similar programs have been forged with the Gadjah Mada University (UGM) in Yogyakarta and Diponegoro University (UNDIP) in Semarang to introduce MineScape to their respective students through road shows conducted in mid-2012.
MineScape clients in Indonesia comprise more than 150 organisations, including concession holders, contractors and service companies.
