Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) is an Indonesian public university located in Surabaya, East Java, with strong emphasis on scientific, engineering, and technological education and research. ITS has five faculties containing 27 academic departments which occupy an area of 180 hectares.
ITS was founded at November 10, 1957, as its establishment charter was signed by Soekarno, then President of Republic of Indonesia. Initially, Sepuluh Nopember Technical College had only two departments, Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. On his speech, President Soekarno himself gave the strong emphasis on the Spirit of Sepuluh Nopember, remembering the famous Battle of Surabaya which reached its heat on November 10, 1945 and annually being commemorated as Heroes Day in Indonesia.
In 2001, in response to the vision of Abdurrahman Wahid, then President of Republic of Indonesia, ITS introduced faculty of information technology in which consist of two departments: Informatics Engineering and Information Systems. Today, ITS's educational disciplines have expanded beyond sciences and engineering into fields such as arts and business management.
Currently, ITS has a wide range of degree and non-degree programs, which are managed under five faculties: Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Industrial Technology, Faculty of Civil Engineering and Planning, Faculty of Marine Technology and Faculty of Information Technology.
In addition, two polytechnics (Electronic State Polytechnic, PENS, and Shipbuilding State Polytechnic, Politeknik Perkapalan) operate independently on the same area at ITS' main campus in Sukolilo, an area in the vicinity of East Surabaya.

Foundation and Vision
ITS was founded by Angka Nitisastro, a medical doctor, and his friend Soedjasmono, an engineer. Once upon a time, the two visionaries had a conversation on the Kenjeran Beach, eastern Surabaya. "Look at that poor fishermen. We must do something to change the game, " said the doctor to his friend. Realizing the important role of science and technology to shape the future of people, the two visionaries shared their ideas with another several people in a group of Indonesian Engineers Association (PII), to provide higher education in Surabaya that focused on science and technology. During the years of national revolution, they build a foundation to establish technical education in Surabaya.
President Soekarno, who himself was an engineer and born in Surabaya, once thought the idea was ridiculous. "How brave are you to have such an idea.." said Bung Karno laughing. But later, Perguruan Teknik 10 Nopember Surabaya' or "10 Nopember Technical College" was established in November 10, 1957. Its establishment charter was signed by the Indonesia's first president, Soekarno himself. On his speech, Soekarno emphasized that education is not only about investment of skill, but also investment of mentality. Since the beginning, these two aspects of investments, skill and mentality, were embodied in the ITS character to educate the student to become the fittest leaders and pioneers of the fast-changing world.
In 1957, ITS only had two departments, Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. Three years later, ITS expanded with the opening of Electronic Engineering, Naval Architecture and Shipbuilding Engineering and Chemical Engineering departments. These departments then changed their status into faculties.
In 1965, ITS again opened two faculties, Architectural Engineering and Faculty of Natural Science. So, in 1965, ITS had seven faculties: Faculty of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Chemical Engineering, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Naval Architecture and Shipbuilding Engineering, and Faculty of Natural Science.
In 1972, the campus of the Faculty of Civil Engineering was moved into Jl. Manyar 8 Surabaya; the ITS campuses was separated. In the late of 1975, the Faculty of Architectural Engineering and Faculty of Natural Science was moved into Jl. Cokroaminoto 12A, Surabaya.
Today, ITS has three campuses area: Cokroaminoto, Manyar, and Sukolilo. The Sukolilo campus is the biggest areas. The development of campus area geared up at 1977, two decades since the conversation between dr. Angka Nitisastro and Ir. Soedjasmono that defined the fighting spirit of ITS character to become Indonesia's best university.
In 1977, with financial aid from ADB, ITS started to build a campus complex in the Sukolilo district in eastern Surabaya. Since then, all departments and faculties have moved to the new campus.
In the early 1980s reorganization took place in ITS, the former faculties are down-graded into departments and merged into common discipline faculties. Hence the new ITS organization comprises 4 faculties, namely the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Faculty of Industrial Technology, Faculty of Civil Engineering and Planning, and the Faculty of Marine Technology.
In 1988, ITS opened its first polytechnic branch, Shipbuilding Polytechnic of Surabaya and followed by the second, Electronic Engineering Polytechnic of Surabaya.
In 2001, at the suggestion of the Indonesian fourth president, Abdurrahman Wahid, a Faculty of Information Technology was created. It consists of a department of Computer Science and a newly created department of Information System.
In 2010, December 14, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono officially signed the establishment of the Robotics Center Building (Gedung Pusat Robotika) in ITS campus, Sukolilo, Surabaya.
Recently in 2013, ITS, as an institute of technology founded by a medical doctor by the name of dr. Angka Nitisastro, has its first doctoral graduate on medical engineering, Ingrid Nurtanio, lecturer at University of Hassanuddin..
