The higher education of Electrical Engineering in Indonesia began with the Electrical Laboratory at the Technische Hoogenschool 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 influental engineering field in the development of human civilization in the last hundred years. Contribution of Electrical Engineering is expected to grow in the future. There are varieties of human effort that are only possible by using the technology developed by Electrical Engineering.
Graduates of Electrical Engineering are 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 programme 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, ocmputer sytems 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.
