Center for Earthquake Science and Technology (PUI-STG / CEST)
Indonesia is a country with very large potential for disaster, this is because the territory of Indonesia is in the “Ring of Fire” region and is influenced by the activities of 4 major earth plates that interact and form subduction and collision zones, active faults and volcanoes.
In view of this, national needs are needed for leading academic staff who understand the earthquake process and its mitigation at both the central and regional levels. Therefore, ITB as one of the educational and research institutions needs to answer these problems. The research process related to the science and technology of Indonesian earthquakes needs to involve various scientific fields (multidisciplinary and interdisplinary) as well as various parties, PUI-PT Indonesia Earthquake Science and Technology consists of the fields of science and technology and includes subfields of geology, seismology (geophysics), geodesy, geotechnology, earthquake resistant structural technology, as well as computing technology, communication, information and seismic instrumentation.
Becoming the Center for Excellence in Science and Technology that produces discoveries and innovations in the development of superior and respected seismic science and technology at the national level as well as internationally recognized and contributes significantly in order to create conditions for Indonesian society that are safer from the threat of disasters, especially catastrophic disasters.
• Improve and coordinate research activities in the seismic science and technology field at the Bandung Institute of Technology to respond to the threat of earthquake disasters and reduce their risks.
• Active socialization to increase public awareness of the potential for earthquake disasters and increase their capacity to deal with it.
• Provide input, for earthquake disaster management policies in the context of sustainable development, based on the results of pure and applied research.
• Develop seismic science and technology expertise through research-based post-graduate education programs.
