In mid 2015, the Chemical Engineering Study Program (PRODI TK UNPAR) in its relative youth was able to gain an Accreditation status “A” based on the decree of the National Accreditation Board of Higher Education/Badan Akreditasi Nasional Perguruan Tinggi (BAN-PT) No: BAN-PT 773/SK/BAN-PT/Akred/S/VII/2015. We should be very proud of this achievement as the Chemical Engineering Study Program of Parahyangan Catholic University (Prodi TK UNPAR) is the only privately owned Chemical Engineering Study Program that has received the accreditation status “A” among the Kopertis/Private University Coordinator region I – V that covers Sumatera, DKI Jakarta, West Java, Banten and Central Java.
The Chemical Engineering Study Program of Parahyangan Catholic University joins the ranks of Chemical Engineering Study Programs which exclusively belong to public universities such as ITB, UI and UGM. The hard work and consistency displayed by the pioneers and administrators of the Chemical Engineering Study Program since 1993 has come to fruition. Supported by 26 Lecturers, 50% of whom with doctoral/Ph.D level degrees from renowned universities abroad, this study program has expanded its horizon in the Chemical Engineering world and has been able to produce series of prominent nationaal and international level publications. In its relative youth, this study program is the most productive of all study programs within Parahyangan Catholic University in terms of research.
