Good news has come once again from Muhammadiyah University of Malang (UMM). This time, the Computer Science Program at UMM has successfully obtained international accreditation from the International Accreditation Board for Engineering Education (IABEE). UMM's Computer Science officially received it on March 31, 2024. This achievement is also in line with UMM's milestone targeting every program to receive international recognition by 2026.

Ir. Galih Wasis Wicaksono, M.Cs, the head of the Computer Science Program at UMM, stated that they have been receiving many awards for a long time. One of them is the Provisional Accreditation (PA) from IABEE.

"Our participation in PA is also our effort to fulfil the criteria of General Accreditation (GA) from IABEE. Based on the results of PA, for about one year, from April 2023 to March 2024, we underwent the selection process," he said.
