The Electrical Power Engineering Study Program provides education in the fields of generation, delivery, and use of electrical energy.
Developments in the field of electrical engineering have progressed rapidly in the last few decades. This is partly triggered by the increasing importance of electricity in modern life. It can be said that the activities of human life are increasingly inseparable from electric power. But on the other hand, primary energy is becoming more and more expensive, so that in the business of electricity it is necessary to develop technology to achieve efficient conversion of primary energy to electricity.
The impact of the increase in efficiency is that science and technology in the field of electrical engineering is also developing rapidly. Likewise, technological developments in the field of power electronics engineering, namely the development of component technology and control hardware in the field of power electronics have also triggered research and development of better and more reliable energy conservation concepts.
Meanwhile, in terms of the exploitation of electrical energy and the operation of the current and future electric power systems, information technology and computers are increasingly real and absolutely necessary. Modern electric power system operations require Real Time Computers to assist implementing personnel in managing the electric power system. The Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system is a work tool that cannot be avoided in large-scale electric power systems. SCADA technology is currently developing very rapidly and leads to Automatic Substations and Technology that is Open System. SCADA system hardware and software that used to be only produced by the Power System Equipment manufacture, are now widely sold by the Software House and Remote Terminal Unit manufacture based on Personal Computer. In this case, a graduate working in the electricity sector should be able to communicate with a computer engineering graduate.
This program provides students with basic and principal knowledge in the field of electrical power engineering, along with the necessary knowledge in mathematics, science, computing, and basic engineering sciences.
Students are given the opportunity to develop their ability to formulate, analyze, and solve complex problems, as well as design products or systems based on real problems, especially in the field of electrical power engineering.
This program provides sufficient breadth and depth of knowledge for successful postgraduate, masters, or doctoral studies. The program also provides opportunities for lifelong learning; basic ability to play a role in developing the field of electric power engineering and other related industries, both in Indonesia and abroad.
Not only that, the Electrical Power Engineering Study Program also gives an appreciation for problems that arise in professional practice, including teamwork, leadership, security, ethics, service, economics, environmental awareness, and professional organization.
Graduates from the Electrical Power Engineering Study Program will have the opportunity to develop a professional career as a power plant planning engineer, operation and maintenance system engineer, electric utility management, design engineer, marketing engineer in electric power engineering, educator in electrical engineering, and professional trainers in various organizations and companies.
These institutions or companies include: Electricity utility companies (PT PLN (Persero) or other similar companies abroad), power generation companies, power transmission companies, electricity distribution companies, electric power market authorities (government), industries that have electricity networks such as private and government oil and mining companies, application services, consulting services, large contractors, research and development institutions, higher education institutions and training providers, as well as industry and other related institutions.
