Faculty of Engineering The purpose of re-accreditation by the National Accreditation Board for Higher Education (BAN PT) is to provide assurance that accredited higher education institutions have met the quality standards set by BAN-PT, so as to be able to provide protection for the community from university administrators who do not meet the standards. This time, the A accreditation was again inscribed by two study programs under the management of the Faculty of Engineering, Diponegoro University, namely the Bachelor of Chemical Engineering and Bachelor of Electrical Engineering study programs with scores of 379 and 370.

The study program visitation was carried out simultaneously on 20 August 2019. A series of activities have been carried out since the morning, starting with praying and singing the anthem Indonesia Raya as a spirit of nationalism and patriotism. The arrival of the assessor team was welcomed by the Vice Chancellor II Undip Prof. Dr. Heru Susanto, ST, MT; Head of LP2MP Undip Prof. Dr. Edy Riyanto, PhD; Dean of the Faculty of Engineering Prof. M Agung Wibowo, MSc, PhD; Deputy Dean I FT Undip Dr. Siswo Sumardiono, ST, MT and Deputy Dean II FT Undip Dr. Abdul Syakur, ST, MT.

Prof. Heru in his speech said that this accreditation process is one part of the process that an educational institution absolutely must carry out in order to have competence and academic quality standards for students, lecturers and related stakeholders. Prof. Edy added that Undip through LP2MP continues to monitor and improve the quality of education at Undip and hopes that assessors can provide experience, fresh ideas, and input in the development of a study program.

Prof. Agung said that achieving A accreditation was not easy because there were various important aspects that were assessed, such as the achievement of the vision and mission, goals and objectives, governance, management and quality assurance, students and graduates, human resources, curriculum, financing, infrastructure, system information, research, collaboration, and community service. Therefore, a strong commitment from various parties is needed, at the university level and units, not only at the leadership level but also at the operational level. The quality improvement program will not succeed without the hard work of all parties.
