I and UTM Vice Chancellor, Prof. Dato’ Zaini Ujang visits Universitas Sumatera Utara (USU) and Universitas Negeri Medan (UNIMED). From the result of discussions with Prof. Syahril Pasaribu (the rector of USU) and Prof. Syawal Gultom (the Rector of UNIMED), several possibilities of cooperation have been identified. UNIMED will collaborate with the UTM Faculty of Education. Prof. Syahril Pasaribu very interested in the development of biomedical engineering studies program at USU. Thus, the possible cooperation will be with UTM Faculty of education and UTM Faculty of Biomedical & Health Science Engineering, respectively. UTM will send a delegation to Medan to discuss the collaboration in more detail.
