The Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) as one of the higher education institutions in Indonesia always strives to continue to develop itself so that it can continue to play an active role in developing science, technology and art and participate in the intellectual life of the nation. To achieve this goal, ITB has established the 2006–2025 Development Master Plan (RENIP) as the basis for its development. This document was later revealed in a more detailed plan, namely the 2011–2015 ITB Strategic Plan (RENSTRA) which is a common reference in ITB development for the next five years.
The development policy is part of ITB's Long Term Strategy to achieve the vision according to ITB's RENIP. This policy is also an element of ITB's mission to realize ITB as a leading technology research institute and educational institution in Indonesia and in the Asia Pacific region towards ITB as a World Class University (WCU) in the future. The main objective of multicampus development is to increase the role of ITB in developing future research and contribute to the development of quality human resources (technology) on a regional and national scale.
In line with this, ITB has planned the development of several campuses including the ITB Ganesha Campus, the Jatinangor ITB Campus, and the ITB Cirebon Campus. The ITB Ganesha campus is the main campus whose role has been assigned as a Heritage Campus which is the hub for ITB's collaboration with national and international academic forces. The ITB Jatinangor Campus is designated as a campus that prioritizes the development of research and education that contributes to the socio-economic development of West Java.
ITB Ganesha Campus
The ITB Ganesha campus is the main campus of the Institut Teknologi Bandung, located on Jl. Ganesha No. 10, Bandung, West Java, Indonesia with an area of 28 hectares. This campus was founded in 1920 under the name Technische Hoogeschool, and continues to expand and add facilities. Around the ITB Ganesha Campus, there are lecture support facilities such as a hall, sports facilities in the form of a running track, soccer field, swimming pool, health services. , mosques, and student dormitories.
ITB Jatinangor Campus
The ITB Ganesha campus has an area of ??approximately 29 hectares and is inhabited by 23,000 people, which is the accumulated number of ITB lecturers, staff, and students. Even calculated by the density per area formula, the Ganesha ITB campus is already classified as dense because it should have the capacity of the Ganesha campus only for 15,000 people. Because of that background, the development of a multicampus ITB was initiated, namely the construction of a new ITB Campus in Jatinangor. It also aims to support various ITB activities as superior public universities. With the development of ITB Jatinangor, it is hoped that it can improve the quality of ITB in its work, in order to support the achievement of the ITB Vision.
The Jatinangor ITB campus is located in Sayang, Jatinangor, Sumedang Regency, West Java. This campus was built on 47 hectares of land initially owned by the West Java Provincial Government which was previously used as the Winayamukti University campus. The location of this campus is quite strategic because it faces the Bandung-Sumedang Highway and is flanked by several other universities such as Padjadjaran University (UNPAD), the Indonesian Cooperative Management Institute (IKOPIN), and the Institute of Domestic Government (IPDN). In the future, access to the Jatinangor Campus will be easier along with the construction of the Cileunyi-Sumedang-Dawuan (Cisumdawu) Toll Road.
Until 2020, ITB Jatinangor Campus has 9 Undergraduate Study Programs and 3 Master Study Programs namely Bachelor of Agricultural Engineering, Bachelor of Biological Engineering, Bachelor of Forestry Engineering, Bachelor of Postharvest Engineering, Bachelor of Bioenergy and Chemurgy Engineering, Bachelor of Food Engineering, Bachelor of Engineering and Water Resources Management, Bachelor of Environmental Infrastructure Engineering, Bachelor of Entrepreneurship, as well as Master in Water and Sanitation Infrastructure Management, Master in Landscape Architecture, and Master in Metallurgical Engineering.
ITB Cirebon Campus
ITB has committed to developing multi-campus, one of which is the ITB campus in Cirebon. This is a form of increasing the role of ITB in developing future research and contributing to the development of quality human resources on a regional and national scale. A land area of 30 hectares has been prepared for the construction of the ITB Campus in Cirebon, which is located in Arjawinangun District, Cirebon Regency, West Java. There are 4 study programs that have been opened at the Cirebon ITB Campus, namely Bachelor of Industrial Engineering, Bachelor of Regional and Urban Planning, Bachelor of Craft, Bachelor of Geophysical Engineering and Bachelor of Oceanography.
