The Bandung Technological Science Institute (ITSB), supported by the Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) and property company Sinar Mas Land, is sending yet another high-achieving oil engineering student, Siti Paizah, to continue her education at ITB.
Siti is a fourth-semester ITSB student who has completed her subjects with flying colors, holding a grade point average (GPA) of 3.88.
ITSB is a feeder university for ITB, which means the former supplies high-achieving students to complete their education and earn their degrees at the highly prestigious state-owned university, which has an expertise in engineering studies. ITSB sets a number of requirements for its students to continue their studies at ITB: they have to at least be in their second to fourth semesters, and have completed a minimum of 72 university units with a minimum GPA of 3.75.
ITSB, the brainchild of ITB, Sinar Mas Land and the Bekasi regional administration, is located in Deltamas Cikarang city, a business district project owned by Sinar Mas Land. The university was established with the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) among the three parties on July 3, 2007.

Currently, ITSB has eight Bachelor degree programs, coupled with three applied sciences and vocational school departments. Two of the vocational school programs offer special scholarships for high-achieving students with limited financial capabilities in cooperation with the Eka Tjipta Foundation, Sinar Mas Land and the ITSB foundation.
The university has a vision to be an eco-industry oriented university, which is programmed to create graduates who are highly competent in their fields to answer to the challenges faced by society in this era of intensive and extensive industrialization, globalization as well as regional autonomy in Indonesia. The graduates are also expected to possess the skillset required by Sinar Mas group’s business pillars, so they can also serve as the company’s human capital.
Siti Paizah follows in the footsteps of Jehan Eldira Islamy, another high- achieving female oil engineering student at ITSB in the 2009 batch who has completed her studies and earned a Bachelor’s degree from ITB.
Both students’ success stories serve to boost ITSB’s commitment to maintaining the quality of its education system, while motivating its students to set their academic achievement bar higher.
“This is ITSB’s commitment as a feeder university. Therefore, I would like to motivate ITSB students to always maintain their high academic achievements so they can get the chance to be a graduate of the prestigious ITB,” ITSB foundation general secretary Dhony Rahajoe said.
