The development of electrical engineering studies could be varying with increasing demand in industry and advancement in science itself, so it needs to be developed in its own field of study, in example:
Nowadays, Department of Electrical Engineering Soegijapranata Catholic University have 2 major programs, that are Industrial Electronics and Robotics Mechatronics, in which way the alumnae could supporting and developing their knowledge for the industrial and national developments.
Since 1 March 2012, Department of Electrical Engineering is joined with Faculty of Engineering, before was Faculty of Industrial Engineering.
Department of Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Soegijapranata Catholic University is an academic community that excellent in education, researches, and society services. In field of electrical engineering, majoring in Industrial Engineering and Robotics Mechatronics.
Based on values of knowledge in electrical engineering, Department of Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Soegijapranata Catholic University would:
