General Information

Telecommunication field has progressed rapidly in the last three decades. The development of the next decade is expected be swifter, especially in the field of wireless telecommunications; there will be convergence between telecommunications and computer, and there will also be demands for various new services which is triggered by the internet development. This development acceleration was mainly driven by advances in parts and computer technology. In addition, these changes are also supported by the urgent demands of the market (market-pull) as a result of globalization. In the global level, telecommunications infrastructure will become the 'nervous system' center of economic globalization. While in the national context, telecommunications and its application system will become a key technology in improving efficiency, productivity and national competitiveness.

To anticipate the phenomenon of rapid growth of the telecommunications, the most significant aspect, which needs to be prioritized by leading universities such as ITB, is to prepare the human resources as actors and supporters. This preparation of human resources needs to be studied from the aspects of a sufficient amount and quality excellence.

With the very fast progress of telecommunications, the industry and demand for telecommunications services will grow rapidly in accordance with the demand of information age. To anticipate this development, adequate resources need to be prepared; both in terms of quantity and quality that meets a recognized standard of competence.

In developing and planning the curriculum of the study program of Telecommunication Engineering, the vision and mission of the study program were determined by referring to the vision and mission of STEI ITB. Thus, qualifications and competence of the graduates to be produced is determinable.

Expected Competence Qualification of Telecommunications Engineering Graduates

The study program of Telecommunication Engineering will have graduates with competence and qualifications as follows:

  • Possessing broad foundation of sciences needed to understand the consequences of telecommunications engineering solutions to deal with social and environmental issues.
  • Possessing the ability to analyze and solve practical problems of telecommunications engineering, by using the techniques, expertise (skill), and modern tools, based on one's basic knowledge of Mathematics, Science, and Engineering.
  • Possessing the ability to identify, formulate, and resolve telecommunications engineering problems through innovative processes that include planning stages, specification, design, implementation, verification, financing, scheduling, safety, and guaranteed quality of service.
  • Possessing the ability to design and conduct experiments in science and engineering, and able to analyze and interpret results.
  • Possessing the ability to function and to communicate, either individually or in a multidisciplinary team.
  • Possessing the ability to understand professional responsibility and ethics, and also to recognize the need and ability for lifelong education.
  • Possessing experience in an academic environment that provides and encourages people to learn.
  • Possessing an understanding of the latest development from the field of telecommunications engineering.
