These 2 major milestones would enable us to get recognized internationally and enhance the mobility of PEs to work abroad”

Selain itu, Ir. Habibie juga menyampaikan bahwa harusnya dengan UU 11/2014 memberikan peluang buat para Insinyur Indonesia yang juga merupakan bagian dari Industri (melalui PII) untuk memberikan kontribusi pemikiran dan pengetahuan kepada perguruan tinggi teknik di dalam mensetting the Discipline Criteria in Accreditation, dan Curriculum Development.
