The first higher education in Indonesian Chemical Engineering was established at ITB in 1941. This higher education was initially intended to provide engineers for agricultural based industries, which were evolving at that time. As time passes, there are 45 Chemical Engineering Departments currently in Indonesia with their own specialty. Almost all of those departments have joined APTEKINDO for sharing experiences to improve educational program. As for professional engineers, they join BKKPII to enhance their professional engineering capabilities. Our annual seminar on chemical engineering is named Soehadi Reksowardojo in honor of his contribution to the early developments of higher education on chemical engineering in Indonesia. This seminar has been held since 1991. On behalf of the organizing committee of Seminar Teknik Kimia Soehadi Reksowardojo 2016 , it is our great honor and pleasure to warmly welcome you.
