Telecommunications Engineering


Formerly Department of Electrical Engineering established in 1987 by the Decree No.03/DJ/Kep/1979 had 2 study programs, Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering (ECTC) and Electrical Engineering Study Programs. Since 1991 Electrical Engineering Department based on The Decree of the Minister of Education and Culture of the Republic of Indonesia No.  0313/O/1991 has had three study programs  namely Electrical Engineering, Electronics Engineering and Telecommunications  Engineering Study Programs. Telecommunications  Engineering Study Program (D III)  is currently accredited B based on  the decree No. 004/BAN-PT Ak-X/Dipl-III/VI/2010. It is under Quality Management System (QMS) ISO 9001: 2008 for its managerial process.
