The University of Nusa Cendana (Undana) in Indonesia will start a new course on tenun ikat (handwoven fabric) from the 2016 academic year.

The programme is relatively new for Indonesia and will be offered by the university's School of Science and Technology as a three-year diploma, The Jakarta Post has reported.

“Because this is a vocational study programme, there will be a combination of science and (practical) skills offered in the programme. Maybe the transfer of skills will be the larger portion of the programme. This year we have started enrolling new students,” Undana's assistant rector for academics, David Pandie, told the newspaper.

David said Undana would cooperate with tenun ikat workshops in Kupang to enable students to practice their skills. It is also expected that Undana students will conduct special research on the development of locally made handwoven textiles in the future.

Once legalized by the Research and Technology and Higher Education Ministry, David said, Undana would introduce the study programme to the public, with local administrations as a focal point, to ensure younger generations became interested in learning about traditional textiles. (SH)
