Efforts to pursue admission tickets to achieve national accreditation for the Electrical Engineering study program have finally paid off. On Tuesday, April 13, 2021, based on the BAN-PT decree number 2032 / SK / BAN-PT / Akred / S / IV / 2021, the Electrical Engineering of the Telkom Surabaya Institute of Technology succeeded in achieving Good accreditation.
"Alhamdulillah, after going through a long process of Electrical Engineering, ITTelkom Surabaya managed to get accreditation Good, this is valid from April 13, 2021 to April 13, 2026. This is an extraordinary achievement because the Electrical Engineering study program was only established in 2018. " said Dimas Adiputra as the head of the Electrical Engineering study program during his teaching activities.
The results of the accreditation prove that the electrical engineering study program has met the criteria for accreditation requirements which include governance, quality assurance of study programs, cooperation, curriculum, teaching, research, community service, lecturer achievement and student achievement. In granting this accreditation, BAN-PT also provides notes on improving the integration of scientific and non-scientific courses and activities for students.
On the same occasion, Dimas said that there were several targets set in the future after getting this accreditation, "In the future, after we get the title of Excellence BAN-PT, we will certainly pursue international accreditation tickets. In addition, the study program has moved to improve the academic atmosphere in the electrical engineering study program with several excellent programs, such as electrizen talk, electrical skills workshops, and focus group discussion which are routinely held every month of the current semester. Regarding the integration of courses, it will be reviewed in 2021 to be implemented in the 2022/2023 school year. Masters program is a very possible thing considering that the lecturers of the electrical engineering study program are dominated by doctoral graduates. "
Accreditation is a mandatory thing that must be owned by both public and private universities where the Ministry of Education determines that if a tertiary study program does not accredit, the study program is not allowed to graduate students or issue diplomas. Accreditation is also a determinant of the quality standards of an institution or university study program.
