General Information

The higher education of Electrical Engineering in Indonesia began with the Electrical Laboratory at the Technische Hoogenschol te Bandoeng in 1942; it continued in 1944 with the Kikaika Denki (Electric & Machinery Section) as part of Kogyu Daigaku. Education program of Electrical Engineering then began in 1947.

Electrical Engineering is a very influential engineering field in the development of human civilization in the last hundred years. The contribution of Electrical Engineering is expected to grow in the future. There are varieties of human efforts that are only possible if the technology developed by Electrical Engineering is used.

Graduates of Electrical Engineering is the highly-needed transformation agent that can provide best engineering practices in every aspect of engineering activities such as operation and maintenance, design and innovation of new products, conducting up-to-date researches, and others. The need for Electrical Engineering graduates is one of the highest among the other engineering fields.

The study program of Electrical Engineering at the School of Electrical Engineering and Informatics has distinguished faculty members in each expertise field—in both education and research. They conduct research activities in, broad, various fields, such as automatic control, biomedical engineering, communications, computer aided design (CAD), image processing and machine vision, computer systems and networking, digital signal processing, electronics, power engineering, information technology, artificial intelligence system, parallel and distributed processing, microelectronic materials and devices, microwave engineering, and VLSI planning.

The objective of the study program of Electrical Engineering is to produce graduates who possess:

  1. Technical Knowledge: by providing basic knowledge in electrical engineering principles which are also supported by the necessary supporting knowledge, i.e. mathematics, science, computing, and fundamentals of engineering.
  2. Laboratory and Design Skills: by developing basic skills required to perform and design experiments; building the ability to formulate problems and projects and to plan the problem solving process by utilizing different technical knowledge and skills.
  3. Communication Skills: by developing the ability to organize and display information, and to write and speak effectively in both Indonesian and English languages.
  4. Professional Preparation: by appreciating the broad spectrum of issues contained in the working environment, including teamwork, leadership, safety, ethics, service, economy, environmental awareness, and professional organizations.
  5. Preparation for Higher Education: by providing sufficient comprehension and profundity to ensure success in higher education, or lifelong learning.
  6. Preparation for National Industry Development: by giving sufficient foundation to take an active role in the development of electrical engineering and other related industries in Indonesia.
