Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember or ITS (literally translated as Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology) is a public university in Surabaya, East Java, Indonesia, focused in the higher education of science, engineering and technology. ITS took its name from the Battle of Surabaya which reached its peak on November 10, 1945. The day is also commemorated as Heroes day in Indonesia. In response, several members of PII (Indonesian Engineers Association) in East Java and Dr. Angka Nitisastro, a medical doctor, set up a foundation to start a technical college in Surabaya. Perguruan Teknik 10 Nopember Surabaya or "November 10 Technical College" was established in November 10, 1957. Its establishment charter was signed by Indonesia's first president, Soekarno.
In 1957, ITS only had two departments, Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. Three years later, ITS expanded with the opening of Electronic Engineering, Naval Architecture and Shipbuilding Engineering and Chemical Engineering departments. These departments then changed their status into faculties.
In 1965, ITS again opened two faculties, Architectural Engineering and Faculty of Natural Science. So, in 1965, ITS had seven faculties: Faculty of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Wholesale NFL Jerseys 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 cheap nfl jerseys Science was moved into Jl. Cokroaminoto 12A, Surabaya.
Today, ITS has three campuses: Cokroaminoto, Manyar, and Sukolilo. Since then, all departments and faculties have moved to the new campus.
In the early 1980s reorganization took place in ITS, the former faculties are downgraded into departments and merged into common discipline faculties. Hence the new ITS organization comprises 4 faculties, namely 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 and followed by the second, Electronic Engineering Polytechnic of Surabaya.
In 2001, at the suggestion of the Indonesian fourth president, Abdurrahman Wahid, a Faculty of Information Technology was created.
