Rapid and phenomenal progress of construction was managed by Universitas Muhammadiyah Tangerang (UM Tangerang) at the age of 13-years. UM Tangerang continually develops academic and non-academic performance at a young age, especially in physical construction. Before Ramadan, Thursday (31/03), the Rector of UM Tangerang, Drs Amarullah, MPd, accompanied by the General Secretary of Muhammadiyah Central Board, Prof Abdul Mu’thi, and Deputy Chair of Muhammadiyah CHERD and other parties conducted the topping off ceremony on the 22nd floor of Menara UMT 1912 (UMT 1912 Tower).
On this occasion, the Vice-Governor of Banten, H. Andika Hazrumy, S.SosM.AP congratulated and expected that the 1912 Tower would become an educational lighthouse in Banten and hoped UMT would contribute to Banten Province’s advancement through human resources development. The Rector, H Ahmad Amarullah, M.Pd highlighted that the UMT 1912 Tower’s ceremony would be a tourist attraction in Tangerang that illustrates the Cisadane river stretching out Tangerang. The tower, in the future, can be used for visual sighting of the crescent moon in Ramadan fasting determination.
In the future, the UMT 1912 Tower will be completed with laboratories, classes, and discussion rooms for students, while the rooftop demonstrates Tangerang’s natural beauty. “It can be an observation deck to see Tangerang city. It can be more special if there is a cafe to drink coffee on the rooftop,” said Prof. Edy.
