The Fashion Design Education Program
of Study, Faculty of Technology and Vocational Education, Universitas
Pendidikan Indonesia (FPTK UPI) held an alumni gathering through an online seminar
on Saturday (10/10/20). Following the mission of the UPI FPTK Fashion Design
Education Program of Study which is to provide education within the scope of dressmaking
to prepare professional educators who are globally competitive, this online
alumni gathering is held in the framework of a tracer study. Tracer study is a
study to trace the graduates. One of the goals of holding this activity is to gather
an alumni database to build a collaborative network with alumni. The
completeness of the alumni database is also used as an added value in the
accreditation of the Fashion Design Education Study Program.
The tracer study seminar was held
through Zoom Meeting and live streaming via the YouTube channel of the Fashion
Design Education Program of Study. This was conducted as an effort to prevent COVID-19
transmission. The event entitled Ã¢â¬ÅIncreasing the Spirit of Entrepreneurship in fashion
through gathering and alumni collaboration with the Fashion Design Education
Study Program starts from 09.00 A.M to 11.30 A.M. The activity was begun with
remarks from the Head of the Fashion Design Education Program of Study, Dr.
Winwin Wiana, M.Ds, followed by remarks from the Head of the Family Welfare
Education Department, Dr. Hj. Sri Subekti, M.Pd.
Ã¢â¬ÅI hope that this gathering will initiate
other gatherings in the future, hopefully, today's gathering will enhance
cooperation from the business or education sector. God willing, in the future
we will often do this gathering to maintain the existence of unity for our good.
We, the Fashion Design Education Program of Study, are preparing to apply for international
accreditation. We are aware that it is not easy, we have fears and worries, but
we have faith that Allah will help our endeavours, and it can be realized, one
of them is through prayer. I believe in prayer of many people will be the best
way for the Fashion Design Education Program of Study. I encourage the alumni
for their utmost prayer to support us to achieve this accreditation, "said
On the same occasion the Head of
the Family Welfare Education Department, Dr. Hj. Sri Subekti, M.Pd., expressed
her gratitude to the alumni who have contributed in activities to fill internal
and international activities. I appreciate the alumni who attend this time, so
the study program can quickly get the results of this tracer study,
