In the afternoon, Dr. Ariva Sugandi Pernama, Senior Lecturer at UTM, and Prof. Taiki Saito, Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering at TUT, hold Keynote lectures.
Then students of UTM and TUT divided into 5 groups and had a discussion about the environmental issue to learn present conditions and problems which each of their countries have.
Each group made a presentation to clear environmental problems, and exchanged their opinions on the last day, July 15.
Despite a limited time schedule, this visit turned out to be a valuable opportunity to develop university exchange which could achieve interactive discussion.
