Biomedical engineering

Biomedical Engineering is a multidisciplinary  field that is the synergy of various engineering  concepts in the world of medicine and biology for the improvement of human health.

This field has grown rapidly in developed  countries since more than 50 years ago, creating the needs of the labor force with  specialized expertise in the field of medical instrumentation and equipment, data processing and medical imagery, to the  development of health information systems.

The path of choice follows two areas of  interest: path of instrumentation, imaging and  telemedicine, and cell lines and biomolecular engineering. The fields of interest in  instrumentation, imaging and telemedicine will interact much with electronics such as embedded systems, electronics,  electromagnetic fields, biomedical measurements and instrumentation, biomedical signal processing, biomechanics, and biomedical systems design.

Cells and molecular engineering will interact  more with biological fields such as quantitative physiology, immunological  engineering, biomedical engineering, cell and tissue engineering, bionanotechnology, and  cell kinetics and signaling.

Information Security Management

With increasing trend of internet users around  the world, various security threats emerging with increasing trend every year. Indonesia  itself has a National Cyberspace Resilience Strategy: Ensuring the resilience of information and its support system in order to  solve the nation’s strategic problems and improve the quality of life of the Indonesian nation. With this specialization, we expect to  increase human resources to secure the security of the national information system of the future.

Areas studied in this field include:

  1. Engineering
  2. Cryptography and its application
  3. Secure software & os security
  4. Digital forensic and computer crime
  5. Management
  6. Information Security management
  7. Information System Assurance
  8. Security Architecture and Design

Telecommunication Engineering

Telecommunication Engineering deals with the  generation, processing, distribution and distribution of information signals in a correct  and economical way in order to meet the needs of human life. One of the most developed fields in telecommunication  engineering is wireless telecommunications.

Indonesia as a large archipelago country  clearly needs independence in wireless telecommunication technology and also in  radar technology. In such situations, national independence and competitiveness will  depend largely on capabilities in the management and utilization of information supported by technology and human  resources.

The need for skilled human  resources in this field fosters  Telecommunication Engineering specialization,  with two focal areas, namely wireless telecommunications and radar.

Electrical Power Engineering

The electrical power engineering research area  focuses on generation system (distributed generation and system, bioenergy, power  electronics on distributed generation systems), power system (computation, security, power  quality, transmission and distribution automation & monitoring system), power delivery (DSM, wide area protection, reactive  power management, FACTS, power economic, electrical power business, electrical pricing, undersea cable technology), protection system  (material and technology, electromagnetic compatibility, lightning protection technology), power apparatus (instrumentation and measurement, field analysis on power system  apparatus, maintenance of high voltage apparatus).

Telematics Engineering and Telecommunication Network

The Master of Electrical Engineering (MTE)  program with specialization in Telematics and  Telecommunication Network is a regular master program offered by SEEI ITB, especially  for undergraduate graduates who are interested to explore Telematics and Network.

The MTE Telematics curriculum is designed to  provide an integrated and actual insight in the  field of telematics, particularly on network technology and telematics services, including  its development in the industrial world, domestic and overseas.

MTE Telematics students are also stimulated to  master basic skills relevant to the development of Telematics and Network  technology, for example by holding relevant activities such as workshops and / or seminars  involving students actively.

In line with the roadmap of STEI ITB,  particularly related to the field of Telematics,  the focus point of MTE Telematics curriculum is on modern network services and  infrastructure to support 5G systems, including Software Defined Networking (SDN) and NFV  (Network Function Virtualization) technology.
