This Home Page is an attempt to document for interested parties (Satya Wacana's alumni and in particular Fakultas Teknik Elektro's alumni) a brief exposition of the founding of the Fakultas Teknik Jurusan Elektro (Electrical Engineering Department) in 1968 at the Satya Wacana Christian University (UKSW) in Salatiga.
Of particular focus within the history of the founding of this fledgling faculty was the support of the Australian churches (Presbyterian Church of Australia) and the Dutch churches (Gereformeerde Kerk) at the time.
The scope of the study is limited to the years preceding the founding and ends roughly when Rev van Emmerik went home to Australia.
This site was developed with the support of Rev and Mrs. van Emmerik (Essendon), Ir. Theo van Beusekom (Salatiga), and the Uniting Church Archives in Sydney, Australia.
