Brief History Faculty of Engineering
Chronologically, the existence of the Faculty of Engineering, Mataram University, is preceded by the establishment of a Preparatory Committee for the College of Engineering Mataram (STTM). STTM started accepting new students in the academic year 1985/1986. The college was prepared to be the embryo of the Faculty of Engineering in order to meet the demands of West Nusa Tenggara province. The Faculty of Engineering is really needed and must be established by Mataram University by considering the lack of experts in the field of civil engineering, especially in hydraulic engineering area. Then, the preparatory committee proposed the status of STTM to be changed into Civil Engineering Program. It is approved by the issuance of the Director General of Higher Education Decree No. 68 / DIKTI / KEP / 1991 dated 8 November 1991, about the College of Engineering Mataram changed its status into Civil Engineering Program, University of Mataram under the coordination of the rector.
Through some process and obstacles, Mataram University try to improve the quality of the resources and infrastructure of Civil Engineering Program. Then, finally Mataram University successfully establish the Faculty of Engineering with the Civil Engineering Program by Minister of Education and Culture Decree No. 0375/0/1993 dated October 21, 1993.
In a relatively young age, without neglecting the problem that the existing teaching staffs are still limited and also hih demands of West Nusa Tenggara province for experts in the field of engineering, in the academic year 1996/1997, the Faculty of Engineering, started preparing two study programs which are Mechanical Engineering Program and Electronic Engineering Program. The efforts eventually resulted in the publication of the Directorate General of Higher Education Decree No. 115 / DIKTI / Kep / 1998, and then both of the programs were officially established. Started from the academic year 1998/1999, the Faculty of Engineering, Mataram University has had three programs wich are Civil Engineering Department, Mechanical Engineering Department, and Electronic Engineering Department. These study programs are currently accredited “B” by National Board of Accreditation for Higher Education (BAN-PT).
