Faculty of Agricultural Technology (FTP) is one of the faculties in Universitas Brawijaya (UB). FTP currently has three majors, namely:
- Technology Of Agricultural Products
- Agricultural Engineering
- Agricultural Industry Technology
Having experienced in providing education in agricultural technology for more than 20 years, the Faculty of Agricultural Technology Universitas Brawijaya (FTP UB) was established on January 26, 1998 with the decree of the Minister of Education and culture of the Republic of Indonesia (Mendikbud RI) number: 012a/O/1998. For a period of 22 years, from 1975 to 1997, batang Teknologi Pertanian (TP) has been held by the Department of TP while still under the Faculty of Agriculture, Universitas Brawijaya (FP-UB).
The trip to the establishment of FTP-UB is quite long. In 1975 at the Faculty of Agriculture, Universitas Brawijaya opened a new department with the name Department of Agricultural Technology (THP). The establishment of the new department is intended to develop disciplines related to post-harvest handling agricultural products. Under the Ministry of Education decree Decree No. 0211 / U / 1982, since 1982 the institution is officially designated as one of the departments under FP-UB,
supervise the study program (PS) THP and study interest (MS) Agricultural Mechanization. In 1984, by decree of the Director General of Higher Education of the Ministry of Education and culture of the Republic of Indonesia (Directorate General of Higher Education Ministry of education) No. 118 / Dikti / Lap / 84, THP Department name was changed to the Department of TP which manages two PS, PS and PS THP mechanization of Agriculture (MP). In 1994 from the minister of Education Decision No. 0411 / U / 1994 which changed the name of PS MP to PS. Agricultural Engineering (TEP).
In an effort to spur the development of the agricultural sector, especially the agricultural industry, the Department of Agricultural Technology opened a new interest in this research, namely MS Agricultural Industrial Technology (TIP) in 1983 since 1984, the Department of Agricultural Technology has been three PS: THP, TEP and TIP included in the SNMPTN, although the determination of the PS TIP only took place on April 1, 1998 with the publication of the Director General of Higher Education of the Ministry of Education decree Number 103 / College / Kep / 1998.
In the framework of the development of Science in each course so that since then also began to develop towards the establishment of a number of laboratories, Quality Laboratory Agricultural product production, agricultural product processing, agricultural biochemical and Nutritional Products, Agricultural Product Process Engineering, Agricultural power and machinery, soil and Irrigation Engineering, Process Engineering and Production Systems, Industrial Bio and Waste Management and laboratory management and Industrial Systems.
In terms of setting and Department of management, PS and institutional laboratories, both during the Department under FP-UB and after becoming FTP UB until 2001, has followed the decision of UB law in accordance with the decree of the Minister of National Education No. 0444 / O / 1992.
Until August 2010 has produced as many as 2,855 scholars spread throughout Indonesia. To increase the number and quality of graduates produced and strengthen role in the development of the agricultural sector, especially agro-industry, FTP-UB is always trying to improve the quantity and quality of the faculty. In 2010, FTP-UB has 78 lecturers, consisting of 6 professors, 15 lecturers with doctoral degrees (S-3), 52 lecturers with Master’s degree (S-2), and 5 Bachelors (S 1). Until the end of August 2010 was 23 teaching staff who took S-3 and S-3 staff took 2, both at home and abroad.
