Applied Bachelor of Shipbuilding Construction Engineering Technology
ABOUT THE STUDY PROGRAM
The Applied Bachelor (D4) of Shipbuilding Construction Engineering Technology Study Program (Previously D3 Ship Planning and Construction Engineering) is one of the study programs at the Politeknik Negeri Batam under the Mechanical Engineering Department. The Shipbuilding Construction Engineering Technology Study Program (Applied Bachelor Program) is a study program resulting from a transformation or upgrade from a third diploma (D3) to an applied bachelor (D4) in 2022. The previous study program, namely D3 Ship Planning and Construction Engineering, was already at the Politeknik Negeri Batam since 2014 as one of the concentrations in the D3 Mechanical Engineering Study Program. This study program was officially established in 2015 and was accredited B by BAN-PT in 2018. This study program has alumni working in various national and multinational companies at home and abroad.
