A Glimpse of DTAP

The Department of Architecture and Planning (Departemen Teknik Arsitektur dan Perencanaan/ DTAP) began with the opening of the Architectural Engineering section of the Faculty of Engineering in 1962, the opening of the Architectural Engineering section was inseparable from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) assistance to the Faculty of Engineering in 1957 to 1964.

To support teaching and learning activities, since the 1970s the Architecture section has two activities namely the Design Center and the Research Center. The activities in this forum have the nature of togetherness in the sense of demanding collaboration between fields of science to obtain the desired results so that these activities have been carried out in the form of a team/group. This encourages the desires of members and prospective members of both institutions for further study in various fields of related science to be able to complement each other.
