According to UU No. 11 tahun 2014 tentang Keinsinyuran, someone who will practice engineering must have a Surat Tanda Registrasi Insinyur (STRI). For this reason, President University (PresUniv) and the Persatuan Insinyur Indonesia (PII) held a Socialization of STRI Acceleration and PII Member Registration at PresUniv. Mia Galina, S.T., M.T., a lecturer in the Electrical Engineering Study Program, hosted this event on Friday (5/11). Previously, on Tuesday (19/10), PresUniv signed a memorandum of understanding with PII, an organization with the authority to issue STRI to engineers who have practiced before 2014.
This socialization presented Dr. Josep Ginting, CFA., Vice Rector for Business Development, PresUniv, Ir. Faizal Safa, S.T., M.Sc., IPU. ASEAN Eng., ACPE., Executive Director of Badan Pelaksana Kesekretariatan PII and Ir. Ali Nurdin, S.T., S.H., M.H., IPU., PII Advocacy Committee. Josep said that this was the starting point to legalize engineering graduates at PresUniv to work as engineers. “This is part of a plan to make lecturers and professionals at PresUniv become company consultants,” he said.
In this socialization, Faizal said, STRI aims to protect the profession, users, and use of engineers, standardize the remuneration of the engineer profession, and the Indonesian engineer database. “So, not only engineers are protected, but also users because of quality assurance. Meanwhile, the beneficiaries will get comfort with no impact and so on,” he explained. Meanwhile, Ali added that STRI registration also protects engineers from administrative threats of cessation of activities and imprisonment.
