Undergraduate Program in Electrical Power Engineering

The Electrical Power Engineering Program provides education on the area of electrical energy generation, delivery, and its application.

Within the program, students will gain the knowledge of electrical power engineering principles along with the required supporting knowledge of mathematics, science, computing, and engineering fundamentals. The students will also develop their abilities to formulate, analyze, and solve complex problem as well as to design a product or system based on real problems, especially in the field of electrical power engineering. Therefore, they will have sufficient breadth-and-depth knowledge for successful subsequent graduate and post-graduate study, or other lifelong learning opportunities.

The program also facilitates active roles in developing electrical power engineering and other related industries. It also embraces the broad spectrum of issues arising in professional world, including teamwork, leadership, safety, ethics, service, economy, environmental awareness, and professional organization.

These institutions/companies include: Electricity utility (PT PLN (Persero) and overseas electricity utilities), power generation companies, power transmission companies, power distribution and retail companies, electricity market authority (government body), industries having electricity network such as: government own and private petroleum and mining industries, electrical equipment industries, appliances industries, consultancy services, power contractors, research and development institutions, higher education institutions and training providers, other related industries and institutions.

 

Enrollment and Graduation Data

Table 1.  Program Enrollment and Degree Data: Electrical Power Engineering

FT = Full Time
PT = Part Time
Total Undergrad = Number of students enrolled to EPE program at 2nd-6th year.

At the first year in ITB, all students are enrolled to the designated Faculty / School. Therefore, the number of student at the first year is common to all six undergraduate programs within The School of Electrical Engineering and Informatics (SEEI), i.e. BS in Electrical Power Engineering, BS in Telecommunication Engineering, BS in Electrical Engineering, BS in Informatics/Computer Science, BS in Information System and Technology, and BS in Biomedical Engineering.

At the end of the second semesters, all students are distributed into these programs. The distribution is based on, in the priority order,

(a) student’s interest,
(b) consistency of student’s choice
(c) priority of student’s choice,
(d) program’s allocated place,
(e) GPA (in case of the number of interested students exceed the allocated place)
