Well, my name is Ir. Filiyanti Teta Ateta Bangun, Grad.Dipl.PM, M.Eng. It's a bit stressful to read it, isn't it? I'm a lecturer at the Dept. of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, University of Sumatera Utara (USU) in Medan. I got my Bachelor Degree from USU (1987-1994) under DGHE-Jakarta (DIKTI). I automatically became a lecturer since 1994 because of the agreement with the scholarship.
I pursued my Master degree from March 2001 - 30 Dec 2002 under AusAID Scholarship. I studied Project Management integrated with Transportation Systems at School of Science and Engineering, Victoria University of Technology, Melbourne.
During my Master studies, I got 4 out of 8 academic awards from the faculty. The awards were from the Dept of Infrastructure (The City Government of Melbourne) and from various industrial institutions in Melbourne related to the subjects I've done.
part from my studies, I also worked as a teacher for Australian Defence Force, teaching Indonesian Language, teaching KUMON MATH for Primary and Secondary Students and giving Private Lessons for Primary/Secondary/University Students about Maths and Physics subjects.
I'm also a single parent of 3 children and I was having my 3 children with me during my Master Studies in Melbourne. Most Indonesian women are hard workers.
Now, I'm still a lecturer at USU. Since my arrival from Australia, I'm assigned not only to teach undergraduate students, but also postgraduate students from several engineering depts at USU, guiding their final projects and thesis. In addition, I also work for the City Government of Medan such as for Bappeda (Regional Planning & Development Body) and Bappedalda (Regional Planning & Development for Environmental) Kota Medan as their Transportation Expert.
m doing various research studies for them, presenting papers, criticize their wrong works/decisions and give solutions to them through local newspapers, seminars and local radios. Recently, I develop my work capacity not only for Medan, but also for Regencies of Deli Serdang, Serdang Bedagai (Sergei), Karo, Simalungun and North/Mid Tapanuli. Some of significant parliaments of Medan, support me very much and trust me in undertaking the research projects because of my work outcomes qualities.
Kang GURU , this might be enough for now, I think I've accommodated all messages from July, if you have questions, please feel free to ask me and I'll be very happy if I can do something good for Kang GURU radio. Please don't hesitate to ask me to do anything for the radio.
