Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) is an Indonesian public university located in Surabaya, East Java, with a strong emphasis on scientific, engineering, and technological education and research. ITS has five faculties containing 27 academic departments which occupy an area of 180 hectares.
ITS was founded on November 10, 1957, as its establishment charter was signed by Soekarno, then President of Republic of Indonesia. Initially, Sepuluh Nopember Technical College had only two departments, Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. In his speech, President Soekarno himself gave the strong emphasis on the Spirit of Sepuluh Nopember, remembering the famous Battle of Surabaya which reached its heat on November 10, 1945 and annually being commemorated as Heroes Day in Indonesia.
In 2001, in response to the vision of Abdurrahman Wahid, then President of Republic of Indonesia, ITS introduced an faculty of information technology consisting of two departments: Informatics Engineering and Information Systems. Today, ITS's educational disciplines have expanded beyond sciences and engineering into fields such as arts and business management.
ITS is known as one of the best engineering schools in Indonesia among ITB, UGM and UI, and appointed by Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono to facilitate ITK >student before ITK campus establishment was complete.
In addition, two polytechnics (Electronic State Polytechnic, PENS, and Shipbuilding State Polytechnic, PPNS) operate independently on the same area at ITS's main campus in Sukolilo, an area in the vicinity of East Surabaya.
In 1957, ITS only had two departments, Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. Three years later, ITS expanded by opening Electronic Engineering, Naval Architecture and Shipbuilding Engineering and Chemical Engineering departments. These departments then changed their status into faculties.
In 1965, ITS opened two more faculties, Architectural Engineering and the Faculty of Natural Sciences. In 1965, ITS had seven faculties: Faculty of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Chemical Engineering, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Naval Architecture and Shipbuilding Engineering, and Faculty of Natural Science.
In 1972, the campus of the Faculty of Civil Engineering was moved into Jl. Manyar 8 Surabaya; the ITS campuses was separated. In the late of 1975, the Faculty of Architectural Engineering and Faculty of Natural Science were moved into Jl. Cokroaminoto 12A, Surabaya.
Today, ITS has three campus areas: Cokroaminoto, Manyar, and Sukolilo. The Sukolilo campus is the biggest areas. The development of the campus area geared up in 1977, two decades since the conversation between Dr. Angka Nitisastro and Ir. Soedjasmono that defined the fighting spirit of ITS character to become Indonesia's best university.
In the early 1980s, reorganization took place in ITS, and the former faculties were downgraded into departments and merged into common discipline faculties. Hence the new ITS organization comprises four faculties: the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Industrial Technology, Faculty of Civil Engineering and Planning, and the Faculty of Marine Technology.
In 1988, ITS opened its first polytechnic branch, Shipbuilding Polytechnic of Surabaya. This was followed by the second, Electronic Engineering Polytechnic of Surabaya.
In 2001, at the suggestion of the fourth Indonesian president, Abdurrahman Wahid, a Faculty of Information Technology was created. It consists of a department of Computer Science and the newly created department of Information Systems.
On December 14, 2010, President Dr. Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono officially signed the establishment of the Robotics Center Building (Gedung Pusat Robotika) in ITS campus, Sukolilo, Surabaya city.
In 2013, ITS, as an institute of technology founded by a medical doctor by the name of Dr. Angka Nitisastro, had its first doctoral graduate on medical engineering, Ingrid Nurtanio, lecturer at University of Hassanuddin.
From the Widya Wahana Project, Indonesia's first solar-powered ship, to the Jalapatih Project, Indonesia's first solar-powered car, ITS is well known as a pioneer of cutting-edge research in Indonesia.
ITS launched Indonesia's first solar-powered ship, and took part in a world competition, Dong Energy Challenge, in 2014 in the Netherlands.
2012, a team of students was given the Toyota Award at the ABU Asia-Pacific Robot Contest (ABU Robocon) in Hong Kong.
Decades ago, ITS launched Indonesia's first solar-powered car, Widya Wahana. It was tested in Australia, in a world solar car competition.
2012, the urban energy-efficient concept car, Sapu Angin, won the Asia Pacific energy-saving car competition, Shell Eco Marathon Asia 2012, at Sepang, Malaysia.
In 2013, ITS (Sapu Angin Speed) won the Best Rookie Award of ICV at Student Formula Japan.
2013, ITS won the Shell Helix Tribology Award (off-track award) at Shell Eco Marathon Asia 2013. In the same year, Spectronic VI from ITS won first place among presentation posters and third place in competition at the Chem-e-car Competition in Chemeca 2013, in Brisbane, Australia.
2014, ITS launched the biggest electric bus in Indonesia, funded by PT Telkomsel.
2015, ITS won the Shell Eco Marathon (SEM) Asia 2015, in Manila, Philippines, in the urban concept diesel category.
There are eight faculties, some departments offer diploma programmes.
In early 2016 the Department of Industrial Engineering achieved ABET accreditation. In early 2015 the Department of Informatics Engineering, Department of Statistics and Department of Environmental Engineering also achieved AUN accreditation.
ITS has three campuses in Surabaya. Its major campus is located at Sukolilo, where all undergraduate programs are located, along with the postgraduate buildings, administrative building, main library, faculties housing, student community center, football stadium, jogging track, and student dormitory that can accommodate 1200 freshmen.
A smaller campus is located in Manyar district, providing a Civil Engineering diploma course.
The third campus is located at Cokroaminoto Street, providing a postgraduate Technology Management Magister course.
