The history of the Mining Engineering Study Program began when in 1994 the Faculty of Mineral Technology (FTM) of Trisakti University opened the Mining Engineering Department / Study Program which on May 18, 1994 received approval from DIKTI with the status of “REGISTERED” by decree. No. 134/DIKTI/Kep/1994.
In 1997 a complete Coal Laboratory and Mineral Processing Laboratory were built. At that time FTM already had the Department of Petroleum Engineering and Geological Engineering. On September 1, 2005, the Faculty of Mineral Technology was changed to the Faculty of Earth and Energy Technology based on the Decree of the Chancellor of Trisakti University No:308/USAKTI/SKR/IX/2005.
In 2020 the Mining Engineering Study Program has applied for reaccreditation, where the Mining Engineering Study Program has again obtained accreditation with a B (Good) rating with the Decree of BAN PT Number: 6049/SK/BAN-PT/Akred/S/IX/2020. The validity period of this accreditation is until September 29, 2025.
