Enrollment and Graduation Data

Table 1.  Program Enrollment and Degree Data: Telecommunication Engineering

FT = Full Time
PT = Part Time
Total Undergrad = Number of students enrolled to ET 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)
