For the first time after the pandemic, Faculty Fair was presented by Universitas Gadjah Mada at Grha Sabha Pramana (GSP) on 18-19 March 2023. Faculty Fair is an event to introduce faculties, study programmes, and various UGM work units to the general public. In addition to exhibitions that can be visited in person, this Faculty Fair also presents a virtual expo online. In addition, there are also talk shows, campus tours with UGM campus buses, and various door prizes to be distributed to visitors.
The Department of Architecture and Planning as part of the Faculty of Engineering also had the opportunity to showcase the excellence of the study programmes within DTAP. The study programmes include undergraduate programmes (Architecture and Urban Planning), master’s programmes (Architecture, Urban Planning, and Urban Design), doctoral programmes (Architecture and Urban Planning), and professional education in Architecture (PPAr).
During the 2 days of the Faculty Fair, there were quite a lot of visitors approaching the booth of the Department of Architecture and Planning. Most of the visitors were school students who were interested in continuing their undergraduate studies in Architecture and PWK, they seemed enthusiastic in asking questions to the booth guards. In addition, visitors were also interested in the work of students on display such as mock-ups, design drawings, studio posters, books, and videos. This activity is expected to highlight the advantages of each study programme and can bring prospective students of various levels, parents, and the general public closer to the Department of Architecture and Planning.
