Milestones of Faculty of Engineering
The starting points of Engineering Faculty University of Mataram (Unram) are initially by forming the preparation committee for the establishment of Engineering Higher Educational Institution of Mataram (STTM). STTM was established as the primary point of Unram Engineering Faculty. Moreover, the construction of public facilities and other infrastructures have been developed in West Nusa Tenggara in recent years. However, the development of infrastructure is not followed by the availability of engineering labor. Therefore, since 1985 (Academic Years 1985/1986 as 1st period), Mataram Engineering Higher Educational Institution (STTM) receives the students. Furthermore, the effort of Engineering Faculty’s establishment had been developed based on the decree of Directorate General of Higher Education (DIKTI) No. 68/DIKTI/KEP/1991 on November 8, 1991 of which was upgraded the status of STTM become Civil Engineering Study Program University of Mataram. By the time, the effort to establish the Engineering Faculty’s was continuously done through obtaining requirements decided by DIKTI. The effort had been realized by the decree of Minister of Education and Culture of RI No.0375/0/1993 on October 21, 1993 as the establishment license of Unram Engineering Faculty. At the time, Civil Engineering Study Program was the only study program that overshade under Unram Engineering Faculty.
The Development of Study Program
By the existing of Unram Engineering Faculty, an opportunity to develop new study program the Faculty of Engineering has been available. Therefore, to meet the demand of NTB in terms of the requirement of engineering labors, since 1996/1997, Engineering Faculty prepared 2 new Study Programs namely; Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering. Furthermore, Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering were officially established based on the decree of the Directorate General of Education No.: 115/DIKTI/Kep/1998. Finally, since academic years 1998/1999, there were 3 Study Programs at the Faculty of Engineering namely; Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Electrical Engineering. In the developmental process, to meet the demand of society in the field of Engineering, the study programs organized the extension study program (reguler sore) or in order to manage the increasing of students’ numbers. Recently, due to the development of information technology, Faculty of Engineering had been proposed the establishment of Information Technology Study Program since 2009. The proposals had been realized in 20012 based on the decree of Minister of Education and Culture No. 195/E/O/2012. By the publication of the Decree, Information Technology Study Program provides 90 freshmen for academic years 2012/2013.
