The History Of The Department

The Civil Engineering Department is one of the oldest departments in the  Institut Teknologi Sepuluh  Nopember  (ITS),  Surabaya,  Indonesia.    Founded  in  1957,  it  was  initially  located  at Undaan  Kulon  Street,  Surabaya,  as  a  Faculty  of  Civil  Engineering  within  a  formally  private university called Perguruan Tinggi Teknik 10 Nopember, which was the embrio of the current ITS. In 1960, the Perguruan Tinggi Teknik  10 Nopember was adopted by the Government to become a state university with the name of Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember, or ITS; and the Faculty of Civil Engineering was moved to a new location at Ketabang Kali Street, Surabaya. In 1972, the Faculty of Civil Engineering was again moved to its new campus at Manyar Street, Surabaya.

Finally in 1982, all faculties of ITS were relocated to the integrated campus at Sukolilo, Surabaya. In the same year, the undergraduate program of the Faculty of Civil Engineering was moved from Manyar  to  the  Sukolilo  campus,  while  the  Program  of  Diploma-III  of  the  Civil  Engineering remained at the Manyar street location. In 1984, the Faculty of Civil Engineering in Sukolilo was reorganized to become Civil Engineering Department, and it became one of the departments under the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Planning. Since 1997, the Civil Engineering Department was finally moved to its permanent location at Sukolilo campus.

Currently, the Civil Engineering Department  of  ITS  is  supported  by  fifty  eight  qualified  academic  staffs,  including  eight Professors,   seventeen   Doctors,   thirty   three   Masters   and   one   Undergraduate.   The   Civil Engineering   Department   is  also   supported   by  well   equipped   teaching   facilities   and  six laboratories.
