My job is to assess a new land transport or traffic policy, this will include an audit for a new proposed infrastructure or new buildings which by Indonesian law must have “a Traffic Impact Analysis Document”. This will focus on security and safety of traffic around the proposed location. I also investigate incidents of traffic collision or accidents and report to the Chief regarding the factors that contributed to the cause the crash.

My experience at ITS and to spend a year in Leeds was the best time in my life. The atmosphere of university, especially ITS, is amazing. It is an honor to be a part of ITS Alumni.

At the beginning, there was no other choice for me except ITS Leeds, since the scholarship from my department only allowed me to go to ITS Leeds. Eventually, I began understand the decision of my supervisor to “push” me to go to ITS Leeds. It’s the best place to study transport in the world.

My advice for students interested in studying at ITS to fight for your dream, ITS might change your life.
