Four more departments of Institut Pertanian Bogor (IPB) received international accreditation; namely the Department of Agronomy and Horticulture (AGH), the Department of Plant Protection (PTN), the Department of Aquacuture (BDP), and the Department of Marine Science and Technology (ITK). On 23 May 2013, Prof. Dr. Herry Suhardiyanto, Rector of IPB expressed his appreciation to these four departments for obtaining international accreditation during the Appreciation of International Accreditation Achievement or “Apresiasi Capaian Akreditasi International” at the Senate Meeting Room of Andi Hakim Nasoetion Building at IPB Dramaga Campus in Bogor. 

The AGH, PTN, and BDP received the accreditation from the ASEAN University Network - Quality Assurance (AUN-QA), while the ITK received their accreditation from the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMArEST).

"This is our commitment to quality improvement and internationalization. However, local issues also need to be given due attention. This is where IPB will also add value," said Dr. Suhardiyanto.

Dr Abdjad Asih Nawangsih, Head of the Department of Plant Protection shared that while the process of getting international accreditation is quite difficult to achieve, the bigger challenge is in maintaining the accreditation.
