All student candidates have to graduate from high school and should pass the National Exam (UN). Process for accepting new students into the Electrical Engineering Study Program (EESP) is conducted during academic year from May to June. Student admission is carried out by Hasanuddin University for the entire program. Prospective students are assessed for their academic performance in science, i.e. math and physics as basic capabilities for Electrical Engineering students.
No transfer students and transfer courses.
Faculties are served as Academic Advisor (AA) who counsels the selection of courses prior to registering for the following semester. This counseling activity is in the form of recommendations for strategy to select courses in relation to prospective job after graduation.
EESP carry out academic dialogue regularly to obtain input and find solutions for student’s obstacles in the study process. Moreover, this academic dialogue discusses employment opportunities for graduated student. EESP also invites alumni association (IATEL) to provide job information.
At the college level (deputy dean for student and alumni affairs) and at the university level (Directorate of Alumni and Career Preparation) regularly conduct job affair for students and alumni.
An EESP graduate must complete at least 145 credit hours of courses, a total of 28 credits hours equivalent of those are non-lecture courses. In the final year, a student must present and defend his/her undergraduate Final Project Report, called “Skripsi”, having 4 credit hours. In the last semester, before the Final Project Report, a student must also present in a seminar his/her the Undergraduate Final Project Results, having 2 credit hours, undertake a Community Service, called “KuliahKerjaNyata” or KKN, one-month off-campus activity run by the university, usually in a remote area or a village, 4 credit hours, and undertake a Practical (Industrial or “On Job”) Training, one-/two-month off-campus activity, typically in an industrial site, having 2 credit hours.
In the last year, a student must also do a research activity termed as Laboratory Work 1 (for Semester 7) and Laboratory Work 2 (for Semester 8). The Laboratory Work 1 is an intra-laboratory or working-group R&D activity, having 8 credit hours, to develop an undergraduate final project proposal. The Laboratory Work 2 is an intra- laboratory or working-group R&D activity, having 8 credit hours, to produce a contribution from the undergraduate final project.
By participating in various academic programs in EESP, the students will attain the basic competency in the field of electrical engineering, and at least one of the following options:
Option 1 : Electricity and Electrical Power Engineering
1. An ability to design and to analyse electricity systems both tecnically and economically
2. A mastery in power system generation, instalation, transmission and distribution, and power station operation
3. The EESP graduates have the spirit of leadership and entrepreneurship, the academic attitude, and have an ability to compete to work in various sectors all over the world, especially in Indonesia and Asia-Pacific region (Entrepreneur Skills).
4. A mastery in electric machines applications, maintenance, control and operation.
The Program Curriculum of the EESP is designed to meet the program educational objectives.The EESP requires that all educational programs must have a freshman year that consists of mathematics and basic science, a set of general education, and engineering topics. With these constraints, the implementation of the EESP curriculum consists of three elements and with a total minimum of 145 credits hours as shown in the Figure 5-1.
The faculty members of EESP consist of 33 faculty members, 5 of them are professors and one visiting lecturer. The faculties come from a wide variety of graduated domestic and overseas institutions. They are dedicated persons who have competence and expertise that support the achievement of learning in EESP. Their expertise includes Telecommunications and Information Engineering, Electric Power Engineering, and Computer, Control and Electronic Engineering.
In Telecommunication and Information Engineering, the EESP has 9 faculties. They have many years of experience in design and planning of telecommunication system related to wireless, satellite, fiber optic, antenna, traffic engineering, and switching. In Electric Power Engineering, the EESP has 12 faculty members. They have expertise in Stability, Control and Power System Protection, Power Electronics, High Voltage and Isolation, Distribution of Power Systems and Electrical Installations, Power Systems and Electricity, Electricity Infrastructure. In Computer, Control and Electronic Engineering, the EESP has 12 faculty. And a visiting lecture.
Most of the faculty conduct highly research activities and manage the research groups in their each field of expertise. They are also very active in writing some articles for some conferences and reputable international journals.
The main structure of the curriculum is shown by Figure 1-1. In the first 4 (four) semesters, freshmen and sophomores spend most of their time in classrooms and supporting teaching laboratories to develop their knowledge on required mathematics and basic sciences (physics and chemistry), and the Electrical Engineering fundamentals, especially the 4 (four) basics namely1: (1) Electric Circuits, (2) Electro-magnetics, (3) Solid-state Electronics and (4) Digital Logic Circuits. They also begin to develop their skills to conduct simple experiments, to analyze, interpret and present data, to enhance their knowledge on the required subjects. After completing all basic and fundamental courses, in the third year the students are supposed to take at least one elective-course package per semester consisting of 3 to 4 courses in a specific area of electrical engineering that will - but not necessarily - lead to one of the research laboratories or working groups in the fourth year that they are interested to apply. Roughly 6 to 8 elective-course packages are offered each semester to juniors, covering the total of more than 50 elective-courses.
All academic teaching and learning processes are located in the new Faculty of Engineering campus at Gowa, about 20 km to the south from the old campus at Tamalanrea, Makassar. The new campus is designed to accommodate the concept of Laboratory-based Education (LBE) adopted by the Faculty of Engineering. Common facilities such as classrooms, the central library and the Faculty of Engineering administrative offices, are located in the main area of campus. A three-story building as seen in Fig. 1-2 is functioned as the Classroom Building to house classrooms with the capacity of 20 to 100 students. Lecture theaters for an audience of hundreds of students are also available for general lectures. For smaller classes, less than 20 students, the seminar and meeting rooms in laboratories at the Electrical Engineering Building can be used, as shown in Fig. 1-3
