Chemical Engineering Study Program - Program Studi Teknik Kimia (PSTK) of Syiah Kuala University (Unsyiah) was founded in 1977 in response to the growth of industrial estates in the north of Aceh Province. It became the choice for student candidate both from inside and outside Aceh. Unsyiah PSTK alumni have worked in various fields of good work in Indonesia and abroad. In general, the field of work expected for Unsyiah PSTK alumni are process engineering, research and development, and consultancy service. Besides the three occupational groups above, many of them are graduates from Unsyiah PSTK, currently working independently or at work not related to the field of science, which requires enthusiasm entrepreneurship and good management skills. This is in line with very rapid changes in environmental settings over the past decade.
In 2004 Unsyiah PSTK was accredited “A” based on decree Badan Akreditasi Nasional Perguruan Tinggi Departemen Pendidikan Nasional No. 013 / BAN-PT / Ak-VII / S1 / IV / 2004 and then in the re-accreditation process of Unsyiah PSTK again received accreditation A based on Decree of BAN-PT No. 022 / BAN-PT / Ak-XIII / S1 / X / 2010 which are valid from October 22, 2010 to October 22, 2015. Furthermore, in the 2015 re-accreditation process the Unsyiah PSTK again received A accreditation based on BAN-PT Decree No. 773 / SK / BAN-PT / Accredited / S / VII / 2015 which are effective from 10 July 2015 to 10 July 2020.
At present, in addition to having 11 laboratories, Unsyiah PSTK also has several supporting units, namely: Reading Room, Kindergarten Computer Center, Guidance and Counseling, Publication, Central Alumni, Industrial Study Center, Designer Studio and Mushalla At-Tafakur. In facing the main challenges in the fields of science and technology, the government plans to achieve economic and social improvements in line with the changing paradigm of higher education.
