I have visited Bandung from 10 to 17 February 2015. There are two purposes to visit Bandung at this time. First, paid an official visit with UTM Vice Chancellor, Prof. Datuk Ir. Dr. Wahid Omar, to Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB), Masjid Salman ITB and Universitas Pendidikan Indonesia (UPI) from 10 to 12 February 2015. Second, from 12 to 17 February 2015, I along with my postdoc and PhD students visited Department of Chemistry, ITB and and held discussions with graduate students there.
On 10 February 2015, there is also a reunion with UTM alumni and Prof. Dr.-Ing Sjamsir Mira, a retired professor at ITB and a former Institut Teknologi Kebangsaan (ITK) (now UTM) who participated in developing the Department of Geodesy at ITK in 1973-1975. He was loaned for two-years by ITB based on cooperation between the governments of Indonesia and Malaysia. At that time approximately 20 faculty members of ITB has been loaned to assist newly established ITK.
