Established as Technische Hogeschool in 1920, Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) was founded on March 2, 1959 by the Indonesian government as an institution of higher learning of science, technology, and fine arts. Although the institutions of higher learning had their own individual characteristics and missions, they left influence on developments leading to the establishment of ITB with its mission focusing on the areas of education, research, and service to the community. The present ITB main campus actually is the site of earlier engineering schools in Indonesia. Since 2000, the Indonesian Government designated ITB as a Legal Enterprise, with the autonomy to manage its own business in an effective and efficient way, and to be fully responsible for the planning and implementation of all programs and activities, and the quality control for the attainment of its institutional objectives. The institution also has freedom in deciding appropriate measures and taking calculated risks in facing tight competition and intense pressures.
